"SEMPER-FI" RIP..Unclaimed remains of 7 Mont. vets to be buried


Unclaimed remains of 7 Mont. vets to be buried

BILLINGS, Mont. — After sitting unclaimed for years in funeral homes in Billings, Kalispell and Whitefish, the cremated remains of seven military veterans from Montana will be buried this week.

Missing in America Project volunteers in the state recently identified the remains after visiting funeral homes, taking inventory of unclaimed remains and authenticating death certificates with U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs records.

The veterans are Jon William Ball of Kalispell; James Brodniak of Kalispell; Orville Clinton Hatch of Billings; Anthony Mills of Billings; Michael Lynn Shannon of Whitefish; Charles Shelton of Kalispell; and Charles Rollin Spears of Kalispell.

Hatch’s remains had sat unclaimed and mostly forgotten on a shelf in a basement storage area at Dahl Funeral Chapel in Billings since October 1994, marked as “Cremation No. 4037.” For six years, the ashes of Mills, a former Marine, had sat next to those of Hatch.

“These men served their country and sacrificed their lives,” Marty Malone, Montana state coordinator for the Missing in America Project, told the Billings Gazette. “To have them sitting on a shelf in a box is tantamount to a crime.”
