Names

The following is a partial list of Deaf we’ve lost to AIDS and HIV-related complications. CODAs, interpreters and other hearing people who were an active part of the Deaf community are also listed with an asterisk (*) next to their names.

This list is updated once a year on December 1, World AIDS Day.  The names listed in bold are the most recent additions to the list. Underlined names lead to memorial pages.  We hope to eventually add memorial pages for all individuals listed.  We need your help to do this.  If you have any information for individuals listed, please forward it to us.

*** Please read our Disclaimer before viewing the names. ***
