Barzan, a bachelor, died of heat prostration Sept. 25 while Cap Lai, South Viet Nam. In its routine process of notifing next of kin of the dead, the Army sent a personal representative to the only address given for his mother, Margaret D Barzan of 2461 Amsterdam Ave., N.Y. She had moved in 1953, leaving no forwarding address. The Army turned to its master enlistment files at Ft. Benjamin Harrison, Ind., and came up with an address of 3204 28th Ave., Astoria, N.Y. 
He had served 22 years including five in the Navy between 1947 and 1952.
