Arrangements Made For Kentucky Sailor Killed In Pearl Harbor Attacks

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) - A Kentucky sailor whose remains were found nearly 76 years after his death at Pearl Harbor will be laid to rest. 

Navy Fireman First Class Samuel Crowder was killed in the attack on the USS Oklahoma during World War Two. The ship was moored at Ford Island when it sustained several torpedo hits causing it to capsize. 429 crewmen, including Crowder, were killed. 

From December 1941 to June 1944, Navy personnel recovered the remains of the deceased crew, which were subsequently interred in the Halawa and Nu’uanu Cemeteries.

Crowder's remains were accounted for on August 30, 2017 after having been buried in the grave for the unidentified victims of the attack. He will be laid to rest on December 9 in his hometown of Louisville. 

Services will be held at 1 p.m. at the Arch L. Heady Memorial Park located at 4400 Bardstown Road, Louisville, Ky.  Volunteers with Angel Flight will provide an escort from Louisville International Airport to the cemetery.
