JOHN MOORE/GETTY IMAGES | A U.S. Navy honor guard salutes over the casket of Navy veteran David Maxwell, 66, before his burial at Calverton National Cemetery Monday.

More than one month after he was found drowned in his Midland Beach home, the last of Staten Island’s victims from Superstorm Sandy was buried at Calverton National Cemetery Monday afternoon.

David Maxwell, 66, a Vietnam veteran was found Nov. 9, 11 days after the storm hit. Neighbors who knocked on his door after the storm passed thought he had evacuated, according to the Staten Island Advance.

He had been living alone after his partner, James McCormick, 72, suffered a recent stroke and was forced to move into a rehabilitation center, the Advance reported.

A Navy veteran, Mr. Maxwell was buried at the national cemetery, accompanied by honor guards from the Catholic War Veterans and the Patriot Guard Riders.
