Last Living USS Arizona Survivor Of Pearl Harbor Attack Passes Away At 102

 

 

According to his relatives who spoke with the press, the heroic 102-year-old last remaining survivor of the USS Arizona battleship, which was sunk during the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese, passed away on Monday.

Lou Conter was a lieutenant commander in the Navy following the attack. At the age of 20, Conter was present when hundreds of Japanese aircrafts launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, sinking the Arizona along with three other battleships.

 

It launched the United States into war with Japan and is believed to have killed 2,400 people, of whom 1,200 died on the Arizona coast alone.

In the company of his loved ones, Conter passed away from heart failure at his Grass Valley, California, home, according to The Associated Press. The U.S.S. Arizona Memorial honored him for leading a “long and distinguished life.”

On December 7th, 1941, just before eight in the morning, Conter—who was working as a quartermaster aboard the Arizona—was on deck when Japanese aircrafts attacked the harbor.
