From the 1960 Lucky Bag:


From USNA '60 Memorial Site:

It is with a deep sense of grief that we announce the death of Bill Aldrich, who was killed in an aircraft accident on 27 November 1963. Bill was attached to Heavy Attack Squadron 123 at Seattle, and is survived by his widow, Ruth, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lester C. Aldrich of Pismo Beach, Calif. We could not have lost a finer, more friendly classmate than Bill, whose loss will leave a vacant spot in the hearts of those who knew him well. We join his family in mourning our friend, and may our last tribute to him be what St. John once said: "Greater love than this no one has that one lay down his life for his friends." Shipmate, January 1964

Bill is buried in Washington.
