Loss

William was lost when his "fighter plane" crashed near Corpus Christi, Texas, on September 11, 1951. (It's possible the accident was the day before, September 10. The OCR for the article is not good, and unable to find him in other databases.) He was 24 years old.

He is not mentioned in the 1949 Class History. Unable to find a memory marker or burial location.
