Chester W. Nimitz, American admiral (February 24, 1885 - February 24, 1966) was born Chester William Nimitz in Fredericksburg, Texas, a German Texan as the son of Anna Josephine (Henke) and Chester Bernhard Nimitz, in Fredericksburg, Texas, where his grandfather's hotel is now the Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site (The National Museum of the Pacific War). Chester William Nimitz Sr. was a fleet admiral of the United States Navy. He played a major role in the naval history of World War II as Commander in Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet (CinCPac) and Commander in Chief, Pacific Ocean Areas (CinCPOA), commanding Allied air, land, and sea forces during World War II. He signed the Japanese surrender document on September 2, 1945. Nimitz was the leading US Navy authority on submarines. Qualified in submarines during his early years, he later oversaw the conversion of these vessels' propulsion from gasoline to diesel, and then later was key in acquiring approval to build the world's first nuclear-powered submarine, USS Nautilus, whose propulsion system later completely superseded diesel-powered submarines in the US. He also, beginning in 1917, was the Navy's leading developer of underway replenishment techniques, the tool which during the Pacific war would allow the US fleet to operate away from port almost indefinitely. The chief of the Navy's Bureau of Navigation in 1939, Nimitz served as Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) from 1945 until 1947. He was the United States' last surviving officer who served in the rank of fleet admiral. Chester Nimitz died of a stroke, complicated by pneumonia in the evening of February 20 at Quarters One, his naval quarters home on Yerba Buena Island in San Francisco Bay, four days before his 81st birthday. His funeral on February 24 - what would have been his 81st birthday - was at the chapel of adjacent Naval Station Treasure Island, and Nimitz was buried with full military honors at Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno. He lies alongside his wife and his long-term friends and war companions Admiral Raymond A. Spruance, Admiral Richmond K. Turner, and Admiral Charles A. Lockwood and their wives, an arrangement made by all of them while living.
