and he had no children and he was frugal and he left lots of money to WWII vet frozen to death leaves estate to hospital - CNN.com (CNN) -- A 93-year-old World War II medic who froze to death last month in his Bay City, Michigan, home left his entire estate to a local hospital, an estate attorney told CNN Wednesday. Walworth said his uncle was a frugal man who hadn't eaten at a restaurant for over 30 years. "He was very tight, and he was very frugal. But he did manage to save a lot of money." He said it's possible his uncle's estate could be less than $600,000, but he believes it's still "sizable."
