Comments: A previous entry states :.......After transiting the Panama Canal and
crossing the Pacific, the carrier made a brief visit to Japan and then......

Previously, the carrier underwent a major conversion in the Brooklyn Navy
Yard. Sponsons for her new 5-54 cal. guns were added port and
starboard. This made her too wide to transit the Panama Canal, which
its locks are only 110' wide. The transit to the Pacific was made via the
Suez Canal. I have a cruise book that shows several photos of the transit.

Comments: The following obituary was published in the Glens Falls (NY) Post Star.
HUDSON FALLS -- Robert Angelo Cicero Sr., 67, of Chestnut Street, passed away surrounded by his loving family at his home after a valiant 10-year battle with cancer on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2009.

Born on March 3, 1942, in Fort Edward, he was the son of the late Angelo and Carmela (Bucolo) Cicero.

Bob was a 1960 Fort Edward High School graduate.

Following high school, Bob enlisted in the U.S Navy. He served on the USS WASP. His continued patriotism showed in his memberships to the USS Wasp Reunion Group and the Hudson Falls American Legion Post No.574.

On Oct. 14, 1961, Bob married Carol (Caruso) at St. Joseph Church, Fort Edward.

Bob was employed by the New York State Department of Corrections for 25 years, retiring in 1992.

He was an active communicant of St. Joseph Church, Fort Edward, where he was a member of the Fort Edward council No. 336 Knights of Columbus. Bob had a deep faith in the Blessed Mother, was very devout in his prayer of the rosary and enjoyed pilgrimages to the shrines of Marmora, St. Anne De Beaupre in Canada, and Medjugorie in Bosnia.

Bob loved to spend time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He enjoyed his daily trips to Seeleys Restaurant to be with his family and friends.

Bob enjoyed horse racing and visiting casinos; owning several harness horses that raced at the Saratoga Harness Track. He was a die-hard New York Yankees fan and supported the New York Giants, Knicks and Syracuse sports teams as well.

Besides his parents, he also was predeceased by his brother, Joseph Cicero, his sister, Domenica Turco, his two nephews, Joseph and John Montello, his niece, Cindy Carpenter, his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Charles and Susie Caruso, his sister-in-law, Lita Caruso, his two brothers-in-law, Anthony Caruso and Bernard Curtis and his aunt, Anna Choppy.

Survivors besides his wife of 47 years include his children: Carmel Sue Cowan and her husband, Andrew, of West Boylston, Mass., Mary Margaret Randall and her husband, Timothy, of Jermyn, Pa., Carol Lynn Davis and her husband, Shane, of Hudson Falls, and Robert A. Cicero Jr. and his wife, Heather, of Fort Edward; his grandchildren: Timothy J. Randall Jr. and his wife, Crystle, of West Lafayette, Ind., Daniel Randall of Jermyn, Pa., Susan and Melissa Cowan of West Boylston, Mass., Nicholas and Cory Davis of Glens Falls, Casey and Laura Cicero of Fort Edward, and Audrey Lynn Davis of Hudson Falls; his great-granddaughter, Arianna Randall of West LaFayette, Ind.; his siblings: Mary Curtis of Fort Edward, Sebastian Cicero and his wife, Molly, of Queensbury, and Angela Cicero Viele and her husband, David, of Hudson Falls; his sisters-in-law, Theresa Cicero of Indiana and Shirley Caruso of Hudson Falls; his brothers-in-law, John Turco of Fairfield, Ohio, Jerry Caruso and his wife, Joan, of Hudson Falls, Charles Caruso of Fort Edward and Robert Caruso and his wife, Linda, of Gansevoort; as well as many beloved nieces, nephews and cousins.

Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2009, at the M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 82 Broadway, Fort Edward, NY 12828. For online condolences and to view the book of memories, please visit at www.kilmerfuneralhome.com.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2009, at St. Joseph Church, 164 Broadway, Fort Edward with the Rev. Thomas Babiuch, pastor, officiating.

The Rite of Committal with full military honors will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery, Fort Edward.

Donations may be made in Bobs memory to St. Joseph Church, 164 Broadway, Fort Edward, NY 12828, or to the Hudson Falls American Legion Post No. 574, 72 Pearl St., Hudson Falls, NY 12839 or to Washington County Hospice, 415 Lower Main St., Hudson Falls, NY 12839.

The family wished to extend a special and sincere thank you to Dr. Marc S. Ernstoff and his staff at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, Norris Cotton Cancer Center.

When the WASP was converted in Brooklyn Navy Yard, new gun
sponsons
for her 5"-54 caliber guns were installed on both sides of its hull. The
Panama Canal locks are only 110 feet wide, so the WASP could no
longer go through the locks. The WASP transited the Suez Canal in
order to reach Japan.

Also, the USS WASP left Norfolk, VA on 9/16/53
crossing the Atlantic Ocean and transiting the Suez
Canal on her way to Japan. The WASP could not transit
the Panama Canal, due to the recent addition of new
gun sponsons for her 5"-54 cal guns mounted on port

locks are only 110 feet wide and WASP would never pass
through the locks. Check it out!

Comments: I am the widow of Billy Larkin Prince. He left behind a son---I am trying to build memories of a father. He will never have the honor of knowing. I found a book, while going through his things. It has the USS WASP written in it. Does any one have any picture or information on him.I would appreciate any responds. He was in the Navy in the year of 1952. This is all the information I have on him.
