He served one term, left office in 1938, served as Attorney for the Illinois Drainage District and in 1940 while in Springfield on business, had a heart attack and died. The cause of death could have been either a heart attack or stroke. He had checked into a hotel, intending to stay over night. Shortly afterward he picked up the telephone, called the desk, and asked for help because he was feeling very ill. He died within minutes after help arrived.
He was large framed and in later years, very much overweight.
