USS Cleveland CL-55 Reunion Association



Doyne Williams




Doyne OV Williams SFC passed away 09/20/2013. "Arkie", as he was referred to by many (because he was from Arkansas) was so proud to serve on the USS Cleveland. As I understand it, he loaded munitions into clips or holders that fed the guns and unloaded empties from the guns.

I arranged for a military style presentation at his services. 21 gun salute and flag draped casket. Arkie was buried in AR on the family farm in Brown Springs AR 250' from where he came into this world. I am the proud son of my father! A blessed man he was. I'm sure theres a large greeting still taking place in heaven.

Thank you for this web site.
