Corman Bean, navigator on Jim Schaen's ill-fated Kassel Mission crew, has passed at the age of 95. Preceded in death three years ago by his wife, Millie, Mr. Bean passed at his home surrounded by his family. Mr. Bean lived in Birmingham-Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He visited Bill Dewey, who lived nearby, when George Collar, pilot Jim Schaen's bombardier, came to visit in 1989.
