US Military Academy at West Point/Obituary for Lewis E Maness Jr.



I am trying to find information of a former West Point graduate who died sometime in 2010. Not sure of graduation date. I am his ex wife and lost touch with him.

Thank you for any help in this matter.

Hi, Jan, it's good to hear from you.  Thanks for your interest in West Point.

I apologize for the delay in responding, but I needed to get home where my reference materials are at hand.  My condolences on the passing of your ex-husband.

My primary reference is the "Register of Graduates and Former Cadets of the US Military Academy," published annually by the West Point Association of Graduates.  Per the "Register" Lewis Edward Maness from South Carolina graduated with the Class of 1965.  He was commissioned in the Artillery and resigned from Active Duty in 1970 with the rank of Captain.  He passed away in Suwanee, GA on November 6, 1910.

Unfortunately that is all of the information available on Capt Maness.  It's up to the graduate to keep the WPAOG updated on their assignments, addresses and employment after leaving the Army.  If the graduate does not provide information, then there is not much in the Register, as is the case here.

Good luck in your quest for information, Jan.

Best Regards,  

US Military Academy at West Point

I can answer questions about admissions to West Point; about the history of West Point; about how to travel to West Point, where to eat, where to stay, etc.; and about West Point`s alumni organization, the West Point Association of Graduates.


I am a 1970 Graduate of West Point. I served six years on active duty and another 8 years in the active reserve. I have been actively involved as a Field Admissions Representative for over 20 years and have participated on my Congressman's Academy Selection Panel for over 25 years. I am actively involved in West Point Alumni affairs, serving in roles both with the West Point Association of Graduates and the local alumni chapter in Annapolis, MD. I also have two sons who graduated from West Point in 1995 and 2001. Both are veterans of the Iraq War and Afghanistan War. The 1995 Grad continues to serve on Active Duty in the Army.
