One of the last remaining witnesses in Rockford of the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack has died.

Dr. Allen Pang shared his story with Eyewitness News back in December on the 75th anniversary.  He remembered hearing the bombs and gunfire that morning.  Dr. Pang, who was an ROTC student, volunteered for duty later that afternoon.

After his service, he studied to become a dentist and went on to treat people in Rockford nearly 40 years.  Dr. Pang was 95 years-old.
