The list below of 155 deceased classmates is based on updates received from other classmates as well as information received from the Alumni Association.  We ask if there are any errors regarding any of these entries that you contact Joel Stevens or Sue Weiss, Webmasters for this ETHS Class of 1970 website at If you are a guest or are not a member of this website and you want to forward specific information regarding the passing (recent or going back to 1970) of any classmate such as cause of death, date they were deceased, surviving family, any other pertinent information or submit a tribute to them, click the message appearing at the very bottom of this page. Your information will be added to the classmate's entry on the In Memory page.  As long as you have joined this website and are logged in, you can leave your own tribute/comment for a deceased classmate.  Just find that classmate's entry on the In Memory page and click their name to enter your comments.
The icon of a rose appearing to the right of a deceased classmate's name means one or more classmates have left a comment for that classmate. 

During 2015 as we were preparing for our 45th Reunion, Deborah Lyons led a group of fellow classmates who worked with the Alumni Association office to provide a remembrance for our deceased classmates.  The goal was to provide a Memorial plaque on a designated bench on the ETHS campus.  That goal was reached at a plaque dedication ceremony during our 45th Reunion weekend, on Saturday September 19, 2015. The bench is specifically located on the west side of the school, just a few steps from the main entrance to the Boltwood School (West Hall) wing. Pictures from that dedication ceremony can be found using the link on the left side of this page titled, "45th Reunion Weekend - Pictures"

The inscription on the bench plaque reads:

To Our Dear Classmates
From the Class of 1970
We Remember!


Clicking the link on the left side of this page titled Memorial Bench brings up another page with a list of those who have donated to provide the plaque.

The list of deceased classmates below represents 12% of our class of approximately 1,300 members.
