He was appointed a warrant officer aboard Augusta 4 December 1936 and later served in Colorado. On duty aboard Arizona from 3 November 1941, he died with other members of the crew when that vessel was lost at Pearl Harbor during the sneak attack on 7 December 1941. He was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart.|
USS Manlove (DE 36) (1943-1945) was the first ship to be named in his honor.
