It is with great sadness that I share the news that yet another precious Survivor of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis joined his shipmates in heaven.
Paul Murphy, who was the Chairman of the USS Indianapolis Survivors Organization for many years, passed away last night, Sunday February 21.
Please keep his wife Mary Lou (who was the Secretary of the Survivors Organization) in your thoughts and prayers as well as their entire family.
Paul & Mary Lou took great pride in the Survivors Organization and worked endless hours dedicated to the perpetuation of the story and making the reunions special for all.
Paul will be greatly missed.
