Memorial Service for Otto F Weeks  August 18, 1945

I found that Otto F Weeks entered the service from Minnesota.

Birth: Unknown

Death: May 3 1945

He is buried at The Manila American Cemetery and Memorial, Phillippines.

He was a Tec5 in the Army.  That is a special rank above a Corporal.

Rest in Peace Otto.  His Find A Grave Number is 56780666


  1. I have a cousin buried at that same cemetery but no photo of the grave.

  2. Interesting that you found a photo for the memorial service. I almost want to grab a hymnal and see what hymns were scheduled for that service!

    How difficult that service must have been for family.

    I found a military record at Ancestry that listed Otto's next of kin as his mother, Mrs. Pauline Weeks Anderson, living on Newton Avenue in Minneapolis. I couldn't find anything else, other than a few military records.

  3. Otto Gustav Friedrick Weeks
    Birth 11 AUG 1914 • Princeton, Mille Lacs County, Minnesota

    Son of Charles Weeks and Pauline Julia Manke.
