YONKERS OFFICER DIES IN VIETNAM

Marine Maj. Robert M. Fitzgerald of 80 Ludlow St. is Yonkers' 33rd Vietnam casualty.
Maj. Fitzgerald was piloting a helicopter over Quang Nam Province during a rescue mission June 1 when his craft was hit by an enemy missile and exploded. Because of the nature of the explosion, his family was advised.
He had fewer than five months to complete on his second tour of duty in Vietnam when his helicopter was downed.
Maj. Fitzgerld, a career officer, joined the Marine Corps in 1958 after receiving his bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from New York University. He received his basic training in Virginia.
His wife, the former Irene Cosgrove of Yonkers whom he married in 1958 and their two children Kevin and Kayleen had recently moved to 9591 Lampson Ave., Gaden Grove, Calif., to await the major's return from Vietnam.
Maj. Fitzgerald was born in Yonkers on Jan. 5, 1936, to Garret E. and Mary Merrigan Fitzgerald and attended St. Peter's Parochial School in New York City. He also attended classes at Villanova before studying at New York University.
His parents predeceased him and Maj. Fitzgerald made his home with an aunt, Mrs. Michael Bulter, at 80 Ludlow St.
In addition to his wife, children and a aunt, he is survived by two brothers Garret J. of Virginia and Donald J. of Bowie, Md.; and a sister Mrs. Glen (Rita) Muller of Foothills, Vt.
