RIP Levi Oakes (2019), last surviving Mohawk World War II code talker

When I was searching Legacy.com for an obit, I saw the following – Levi Oakes (2019), last surviving Mohawk World War II code talker (What is a Code Talker? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_talker): http://www.legacy.com/news/celebrity-deaths/notable-deaths/article/levi-oakes-2019-last-surviving-mohawk-world-war-ii-code. He died May 28, 2019 according to Legacy link above; see obits on Find-A-Grave memorial below for May 29, 2019 death date.

Find-A-Grave memorials (one has May 29 death date and the other May 28; obit indicates May 29th on both memorials) – will be merged at some point – https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/199572679/  and https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/199561977/louis-levi-oakes.
