died death
Those of us in Cranbrook's Class of '49 may have a somewhat common background as teen-agers, but our subsequent experiences beyond the School's gates have been very personal. It is through the aggregate of all those separate experiences, definitely including the deceased shown below, that we further define our cohort's identity. What a diversity of places, peoples, and cultures that we '49ers experienced in this globalized world.

We regret not having recent pictures of all these gentlemen.

For a post-Cranbrook perspective on these men, click underlined names for links to obituaries or eulogies.
