Deaths Elsewhere

Maj. Gen. George S. Patton, 80, son of the legendary World War II general of the same name, died Sunday at his home in Hamilton, Mass.

Born George S. Patton IV, he was a West Point graduate like his father and saw combat in Korea and Vietnam. Both commanded the Army's Second Armored Division, the younger taking command at Fort Hood, Texas, in 1975.

The son, who retired in 1980, founded a farm and opened an adjacent produce stand. He named the fields after Vietnam soldiers who died under his command.

Anthony J. "Tony" Hope, 63, son of the late entertainer Bob Hope and former head of the National Indian Gaming Commission, died Monday at his home in Washington after a brief undisclosed illness.

Tony Hope ran for Congress in 1986, seeking to fill the seat vacated by Republican Rep. Bobbi Fiedler of California. Hope was upset in the primary by little-known Simi Valley Mayor Elton Gallegly, who went on to win the general election.

Before his congressional bid, Hope served on two presidential commissions under Presidents Reagan and Ford.
