    Comments: My grandfather, Laurent Joseph Dubois, served on board the USS Canberra during WWII, and was present when the ship was struck by a torpedo. I can remember him telling me about it when I was a kid, and I had decided to serve in the Navy like he did. This is a great web page to honor your shipmates. Bravo Zulu

I am very proud of him and all that served with him. He passed on Oct. 14, 1990, the day after the 46th anniversary. Dad always did like to stay around for anniversaries.
