Pearl Harbor Survivor's Ashes Interred at Sea

Saturday, 24 December 2011 07:53 AM EST

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — A Marine who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor has returned to the USS Arizona for eternity.

Divers took an urn holding the cremated remains of Frank Cabiness and placed it inside the sunken hull of the battleship during a ceremony Friday.

The memorial came nine years after Cabiness died in Lewisville, Texas, at the age of 86.

His son, Jerry Cabiness, says his father wanted to return to the Arizona because he lost all of his friends there and wanted to be with them.

Jerry Cabiness says it took his family awhile to fulfill his father's wishes because they had some financial problems and it's expensive to come to Hawaii.

Cabiness was a private first class when Japanese planes bombed the Arizona on Dec. 7, 1941.
