From Find A Grave:
Non graduate member of the US Naval Academy class of 1953. Subsequently commissioned via the Aviation Officer Candidate program. Killed in a training accident at Monterey, CA. Survived by his wife and infant child.
William was "attached to a fighter squadron based on Moffett Field… he leaves a wife and daughter." (Information from February 1957 issue of SHIPMATE.) He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
William Tarpley '53 was also in 2nd Company for his 3/c year (before William H. left USNA).
