Peter Zhu, a West Point cadet who died last week, always wanted to be a father, his parents said. His dream was to live on a ranch, where he would have horses and raise five children, never mind his parents’ jokes about how much all of that would cost.

Mr. Zhu, 21, was found lying in the snow on a ski slope at the United States Military Academy at West Point on Feb. 23 after an accident left him with a severely fractured spine.
