INDIANAPOLIS — A survivor of the USS Indianapolis has died.
Granville Crane died Wednesday night at the age of 95, according to the USS Indianapolis Facebook page.
Crane was one of the youngest men to serve aboard the Indianapolis, having reported to the ship in April 1943 at the age of 16.
He later said that throughout the ordeal, he held fast to his Christian faith and prayed. After being rescued, Crane became a pastor, a job he held for 60 years.
With Crane’s passing, there are now only two living survivors of the USS Indianapolis — Harold Bray, Jr. and Cleatus Lebow.
