Appleton High School East Class of 1976

This page updated on  06/06/2006



Unfortunately, we have fellow classmates who have passed away and they need to be remembered.  Please send all information on deceased classmates to feedback.  Be sure to include their names, year or age of death and information on the circumstances of their death such as a fight with cancer or car accidents and the like.


Similarly, we have received other pictures and additional information on deceased students.  We are trying to find a delicate way to provide this information without appearing to promote one deceased student over another.  We do not want to minimize or emphasize one loss over another as this would be hard on the surviving family members and close friends.  Obtained obituaries will be posted.


However, we will post whatever information we receive in student bio form and link it here and in the student bios.
