More detail on this person: I am Rob Calcote former USMC Captain and pilot.

When I flew with with TC Guerinot in January of 1983 in Okinawa Japan he was a Major. He returned to VMO-2 in California in July 1983. My recollection is in1983 or 1984 he was killed when he ejected from an Rockwell OV-10. When he ejected at low altitude the parachute should have deployed immediately. Tragically the seat failed to the high mode which delayed the parachute's deployment causing his fatal injuries. Major TC Guerinot was a good man.

Burial information: Forest Park Westheimer Cemetery, Houston, TX
