How to Report

Whenever we are notified of the deaths of alumni, former teachers or friends of TCHS, we (1) add them to or update the directory; (2) post brief notices in the News; (3) discontinue private messaging. We welcome biographies, which may be accompanied by up to three digital photos.

Please send notices to the editor. Before you suggest a name, please check the respective class list to help prevent duplications. When suggesting a name, please indicate the person's class year, or tell us how they were otherwise associated with TCHS. Please allow two weeks for verification, compilation and posting.

Reported Elsewhere

A group of alumni is currently maintaining a roughly parallel In Memoriam list on Facebook. We intend to make that effort easier with some online submission forms to feed both reports. For now, see the other list here.

Samuel Don Danna
PVT, US Army
Margaret May '62: Sandy Danna was a lovely young man who went to Mark Keppel High. I worked with him in about 1964 in San Gabriel. He happily went off to war when his number was called... I got two different stories of how he died: first, that he had stepped on a mine, later that he died by small-arms fire. He did live in Temple City when I knew him; We used to ride to work together.
Paul Bruce Severloh
PFC US Army. June 21, 1947 -- January 28, 1968.
Donna Georgino wrote on Oct. 14, 2004, to say "Paul Severloh lived in Temple City but graduated from Rosemead High School." We appreciate the update.

Begun April 1, 2002; R. Clark.
Revised, December 2, 2015; R. Clark

The honor roll is presented alphabetically. TCHS Alumni News welcomes stories about the honorees. Please tell us whom else we should add to this list. The honoree should meet the description at the top of the page. If a web site exists elsewhere in honor of the person, please send us the URL. All submissions are subject to verification.
