[Saviano] Staples on Riverside Ave.

Staples High School, Riverside Ave.

The following classmates are no longer with us…

The dates of death are in some cases incomplete. We are very much indebted to John Ottinger for his research. If you do have factual information re the death of a classmate, please forward to me using Contact page.

Fifty-one of our classmates (graduates) have now passed away—that we know of. If you hear of any others, please let me know by email using Contact page. According to the commencement program, the size of the graduating class was 161.

The photos in the list, below (actually, sketches from photos), are from the Yearbook (Stapleite by name). In passing maybe I should mention that I borrowed John Ottinger’s Yearbook to do the scanning. Mine had long since disappeared. Or maybe I just forgot to get one. Dunno. The faint marks that you see on some of the faces you will recognize as the vestigial scribblings of farewell from one classmate to another: “Friends forever!”, “Burn in Hell!”, etc…

Only graduating classmates are shown below as these are the only Yearbook photos I had access to.
