For those who were wondering, Charles P. Kipp, a former member of the Hernando County Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, is alive and well. The 84-year-old is currently living in Frankfort, Ill., with one of his five sons, said a fellow submarine veteran, 81-year-old Gene Kelliher. Kipp's whereabouts could not be confirmed for a story that ran Thursday about other group members still living in the county.
Other Pearl Harbor survivors living in Hernando, but who were not members of the survivors association profiled Thursday, include:
- Walter Cunningham, 84, of Spring Hill. As a 19-year-old, he served on board the USS Phoenix at the time of the attack.
- Phillip Larizzo, 85, of Spring Hill. He was a 20-year-old sailor when the bombs fell.
- Charles L. Schneider Sr., 88. He also survived the attacks while stationed at Pearl Harbor 65 years ago.
