From the November 1961 issue of Shipmate:

The past several weeks has been a black period for the class in that we lost the comradeship of three classmates.

JIM REID and JACK BROWN were killed within a few weeks of each other, both in plane crashes.

The "Last Call" section gave his death date incorrectly (4 September) and "aircraft accident USS Randolph"

He has a memory marker in Arlington National Cemetery.
