Princeton University Class of 1966

Princeton Alumni Weekly - All 1966 Memorials.

We will post memorials, classmate memories, obituaries, and other information as they are received. The class Facebook page is an excellent place to post memories, and you will often find news of a classmate’s death on Facebook. You can help by contacting webmaster John Hart (jmhart62@gmail.com).

 

Names will be retained on this page for about two years. We also maintain an alphabetical list of all deceased classmates with years of birth and death and links to any existing online memorial or obituary. This page is the permanent record.


In all cases of recent classmate deaths, please contact me (jmhart62@gmail.com) directly if you would like to be notified of funeral and memorial service plans. These plans are often made some time after the death. I'll also post the information on this page as it becomes available.

Occasionally we only hear about a classmate death years after it has occurred. Most memorials on this page, however, are for recently deceased classmates.
