Seaman Commie Eugene Price was killed in action on April 21, 1952, aboard the USS St. Paul, a heavy cruiser deployed during the Korean War. While the St. Paul was providing fire support off of the coast of Korea, a gunpowder explosion rocked one of the turret guns. Price and 29 fellow sailors lost their lives. At the time it was the worst Naval disaster of the Korean War.
He was laid to rest at Oakland Cemetery on March 27, 1953.
Dorothy W. Price (1912 - 2002)
Here he lies, where he longed to be,
Home is the Sailor, home from the sea.
He was not ours, he was only loaned to us
for so short a time.
And now the Lord has taken what was His.
