LST-479, info needed on cousin, Harry Ward, Jr.,

My cousin, Harry Ward, Jr., died during a Kamikaze Attack onboard LST-479 in Mindoro Bay, Ph. on 12/21/44. My father grew up in the same house as Harry and spoke of him and his untimely death until his own dying day. I know he was KIA BNR, but does anyone know of a record of his death other than an inscription on a monument at a military graveyard in the Pacific?

Thanks, LJM
