Walter was a student at the time of his death. His death certificate indicates he died of acute dilation of the heart and sepsis, contributed from infection from tonsils.1


  1. Death Certificate, Connecticut, Montville, Certificate No. 141 (1934), Walter Krupowski. The certificate incorrectly shows his year of birth as 1918, but combining his known date of death (14 July 1934) and his exact age at death (15 years, 2 months, 19 days), both shown on the death certificate, demonstrate that his actual birth year was 1919. His brother Alex and sister Helen also know his birth year to be 1919, which also agrees with his gravestone.
