Death of USS Indianapolis Survivor Florian M. Stamm

From VoyForms and July 26, 2015, Indianapolis Star.

I mentioned his death yesterday in my coverage of the 70th reunion of the the USS Indianapolis survivors.

Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, survivor of the USS Indianapolis.

Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 30, 2015, (the 70th anniversary of the ship's sinking) at Mount Horeb Evangelical Church.  Burial with full military honors took place at Mount Horeb Union Cemetery.  Mr. Stamm died July 26, in Dodgeville, Wisconsin.  He was born Jan. 17, 1924, in Adams County, Wisconsin.

One of the 317 USS Indianapolis survivors to be rescued from the sea after their four-days of hell, today, with his passing, there are only 30 of them left.

His youngest son, David Stamm, wife and son, were at the reunion when he died.
