CA-39 2005 Reunion & Contact, Crew information

see below, from an email I received today 12/16/2004:


I have an official list of all Shipmates who perished and survived.

Thanks for getting in touch. We will have a reunion in Las Vegas in May of 2005. The details have not been worked out yet.

Yes, I am a survivor from E Division as an Electrician Mate 3rd Class. I am the present Chairman & Secretary of the Association. I'm glad you to hear from you because I have no information on your Uncle. Please send me his mailing address and if possible his rank and the division and when he went aboard the USS Quincy CA39.

Just an old CA39er, Zeke

If anyone has any info concerning him, please email me.
He died 10 years before I was born.I would like to know about him.

My Dad Daniel H. Galvin Jr, survived the sinking of the USS Quincy CA39...he is 85 soon to be 86 in March.
I would very much like to have contact with some of his shipmates, family etc.
Every Veterans Day he goes out on his front steps of his home and announces every name of the shipmates that perished and he pays homage!
thank you
with Respect

Re: CA-39 2005 Reunion & Contact, Crew information

I just happened upon this web site. My Grandfather, Lloyd Roy Buffington was on the Quincy when it sank. he was a Machinist First Mate. He perished on the ship that fateful day. He was a career Navy man and was (I believe) in his late 30's or early 40's when the ship sank. As he passed before I was born, I would like to find any information on him or the crewmen. I have heard stories from my father but no real solid information.
I would appreciate hearing any info out there.
