July 12th, 2008
I am writing you tonight to inform you that my Grandfather, Clinton C. Hurley of Lubbock, TX. passed away today. He lived a proud and dignified life and succumbed to a massive stroke that completely debilitated him. He died this afternoon, Saturday, July 12, 2008 at about 2:45 PM Central Standard time. He was surrounded by family and friends and left this world with Dignity and Honor. I know he enjoyed your web site, because I showed him many print outs of it. I also know he felt a sense of pride in his service to the U.S. Navy and his shipmates aboard the Salt Lake City and found great joy in the fact that America had not forgotten her Veterans of WW2 by your involvement and creation of this web site.
SLC Deck Logs, Oct., 1943
My favorite story that my grandfather tells is that of the time near
Okinawa when the Captain of the Salt Lake volunteered the ship to go and
hunt for the battle ship Yamato. Papa said he wanted to deck the Capt.
for volunteering them, but of course he did not but he said the whole
crew was very tense for a few days.
