DECEASED GRADUATES OF

BETHLEHEM CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL,

DELMAR, NY

 

By Clifford Lamere    February 8, 2015

 

(These links to obituaries for graduates of BCHS were begun as part of a different obituary project 

that involved only deaths in 2006.  Other names were added later.  Females are listed under their

maiden names when known.  I am not actively trying to expand this list.  However, if you

have someone you wish to have added, please send me a link to the free online obituary.) 

 

 

Note:  The Times Union newspaper (Albany, NY) archived their obituaries, but also shared many of them with Legacy.  In 2014, Times Union started to charge $2.95 to view each obituary or article over seven days old.  However, links to the archived obituaries which were found earlier still work in February 2015.  The Legacy version often includes a photo of the person which the archived Times Union version lacks.  I decided to add links to Legacy obituaries, but kept the Times Union links (usually called Obit2 below) in case a problem arises in the future with the Legacy versions.

 

Note:  Four of the Bethlehem Central High School graduates mentioned below died in Iraq.
