No lists as you ask for, especially since most should still be alive and have privacy rights.

If he was in the military at a duty station he just may have enlisted prior to 1947. Ancestry does have U.S. Army enlistment 1939 to 1946. But so does the NARA ADD online WWII records for free.... http://aad.archives.gov/aad/

He may be buried in a National Cemetery:

If burial overseas:

He should be in the 1940 census and maybe even the 1930 census.

Your best bet is to do a normal genealogy search for relatives and talk to family about any Veterans that dieded while in the military. Without a place of (state/county) of enlistment and age with a "relatively common surname" is going to be very difficult to say for sure if who you find is who you are looking for.

Also try Historical newspapers for 1947 deaths.

Try Find A Grave with a surname and death year 1947 search.
