Life & Loss
Unable to find any information about Friend's life or loss. He is buried in Ohio.
He was married to Wanda "Sandy" McKinney; they had one or possibly two daughters.
(Note that Friend is identified as "III" instead of Jr.; believe this an error based on her birthdate, which was four years after his.)
Memorial Hall Error
Every source found — including the Annual Register of the United States Naval Academy 1943-1944 and previous editions, the Lucky Bag, and his gravestone indicate his last name was spelled with a space. It appears as one word in Memorial Hall.
