    Do we have a list of those teachers we had who have passed away? I know Mr. Fortier and Mr John O’Brien did and I’m sure there must be others.

      We should compile an In Memoriam list here. Please submit names and any reflections you may have of a favorite teacher.

        I wonder if the school district could help us with that? Anyone in the area able to use the yearbook to get a list of deceased teachers from the Framingham School Department?

        So sorry to hear about Mr. O’Brien’s passing. I took two history courses from him, and absolutely loved them and him! I felt like of all my FNHS teacher’s, he taught me how to critically think about things I had read. I still remember a question/comment he wrote on one of my papers senior year that was transformation for me!

    Mr. Gallagher passed away around 1995. I think he lived in Worcester. I am certain he passed and that it was in the 1990’s, and pretty sure he lived in Worcester. Sorry I don’t have more info.

    Mr. O’Brien was one of my favorite teachers. One of the main reasons, which might seem trivial to most people, was that he was the first teacher to call me, ” Frank”, instead of Francis . He also had a lot of interesting little mannerisms when he’d walk or talk. He reminded me of Johnny Carson in that way. Great teacher, easy to listen to and take notes from in class
