At Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum that connects Pittsburgh to Pearl Harbor.

The hall has a photo of Andrew Marze, a Pittsburgh sailor, and two yellowed Western Union telegrams from Dec. 19, 1941, one from his family asking "Where is Andy?" and another from his wife in Honolulu replying that he'd been killed in the Dec. 7 attack.

Mr. Marze, the brother of two Pittsburgh police officers whose father lived on Hunt Street in Sheraden, was a gunner's mate on the USS Dobbin, a destroyer tender, but died aboard the USS Pennsylvania when it was struck by a bomb.

Born in 1912, Mr. Marze enlisted in the Navy at 17 and became a career Navy man, rarely returning home to Pittsburgh. He and Doris, a native of Salem, Mass., met at a roller-skating rink and married in 1937 while he was stationed in Charlestown, Mass. She later followed him to San Diego and then Pearl Harbor, where they lived at the Navy base with their daughter, Andrea.
