OHH/CHS Graduate Deaths

Thursday, November 02, 2017

As the decades fly by, we find that more and more of our alumni are passing away, and as a service, we like to maintain a list that you can check on periodically. If you are aware of the death of an alumnus/alumna, please email to ohhsalumni@yahoo.com so we can keep our list updated. Also, because we are not always sure about the exact year of graduation please notify us of any corrections.
