A death notice from the time of his death states he was killed in action in Vietnam.
Dormansville Sympathy is extended to the family of Cpl. Robert Schampier, who was killed in action in Vietnam last week. Bobby, as he was known to his many friends in the neighborhood, will be greatly missed. His friendly enthusiasm and ready smile will long be remembered by all and his memory honored for the service he rendered his country. Several from here attended the Lenten service at Norton Hill last Wednesday.
