Past Virginia High School Alumni

Welcome to the Virginia Community Foundation’s Past Alumni web page where you can find the names of Virginia High School classmates who have passed away over the years. During the 2008 Great Virginia Get Together, the Foundation created a display of deceased alumni, which was of great interest. Many attendees commented that they were unaware of the passing of certain classmates and how important this information was to them. We have added this list of past VHS alumni to our website in response to the outpouring of positive feedback.

The list of past VHS alumni is gathered largely from information provided to the Virginia Community Foundation by surviving representatives of each class. Though everyone has tried to be thorough, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this list. There will be omissions, and there may be even be a classmate who is prematurely listed as deceased. We apologize in advance for any errors and ask that you please contact us with any corrections. Corrections sent to us will be forwarded to the appropriate class representatives so they will be able to update their records as well.
