As aging Americans, we often wonder if any of our former high school have passed away. Or not just high school, but graduates of any type of school. Usually we find out only through attending class reunions or luckily spotting a death via the local newspaper obituary section.
There had to be a better way to gain more comprehensive information about the status of a graduating class. There is also the need to inform others of a classmate's passing should one become aware of it.
Through these personal needs, the idea for DepartedClassmates.com came about.
The goal is to establish an online database of deceased graduates, whereby any one can search or add to the list of a particular school and graduation class year.
Visitors can also purchase gift tributes that will be placed next to the listed deceased name.
