looking for Shipmates of Louis B. Smith, Served on Zebulon B. Vance

My father, Louis B. Smith was a career Merchant Marine. He served on the Zebulon B. Vance during WWII. He shipped for part of his time out of the port of Baltimore, Maryland. I understand that his family roots were in Texas.
He met my mother as a war bride on the Vance and later married her. They separated and later divorced. I have not seen or heard of him since. I believe he may have retired to Florida and have died in the Jacksonville area in 2006.

Anyone who may have known him or served with him in the Merchant Marines, I would like to have any information you might share. Thanks for helping.
