NOTICE: Sadly, "Adobe Flash Player" is no longer supported so, unfortunately, very cool features developed in the past like the "Music Player" (mp3 songs) and videos will not play. Sorry! If you would like to play music while you read, I have posted some YouTube videos here (that can be opened in another window) as you scroll down the pages. Just click on the genre you prefer.

In Memory

"So long as we live, they too shall live; for they are now and have always been a part of us, as we remember them." 


Please continue to scroll down this page for a listing and yearbook pictures of our dearly deceased. Click on the individual's name ~ I am adding obituary information as I can find it. Please feel free to share your memory of our deceased classmates with the "Post Comment" feature.

We honor them in keeping their memory alive. 


These obituaries and accompanying tributes and memorial notes have been compiled or written by members of the class. The obituaries originate in publications, most often from the Hazleton Standard Speaker. Where possible, an obituary's authorship or source of previous publication is noted. Obituaries are added to the site as soon as they become available, and a death notice is sent to those on the Class email list. If you wish to add an obituary or memorial tribute to someone deceased before this page was created, please contact the Website Administrator at or the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of this page. 

We are missing many obituaries and would like to honor and memorialize those classmates accordingly. If you have any knowledge of, or can obtain obituary information for those classmates, we would most appreciate hearing from you. We will make every effort to research, find and post the published obituary, but unconfirmed information cannot be posted.
