Last Known Activity

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.
