Since you know when and where William died in LA, you can obtain a copy of his death certificate, which should show the names of his parents. Death is recorded where one died, not where they are buried. It should also state where he was born.

Have you found him and Ara on the 1920 census? It asks year of immigration, whether a citizen or alien, and if naturalized. Mother tongue; and mother tongue for father and mother, too.

Have you checked with the Roselawn Cemetery to see if William was buried in a family plot, and who else is buried there with him? Maybe his mother is also buried there. There must have been some reason to take him from LA to TX to be buried.

If he traveled to Germany, and back, he would have needed a passport, or visa. Check with the NARA branch in Fort Worth, TX. Happy Hunting.
