The HPAA stopped carrying obituary announcements several years ago.

Instead, we found that it is much more effective to use the HP-related groups on Facebook. Group members then pass along memorial announcements via their personal email networks and Facebook contacts.

Reconnect, celebrate the good times, and appreciate those who have passed. There are many HP-related social groups on Facebook, including: HP, Agilent, Apollo, Avondale, Boise, Colorado, Compaq, Corvallis, Cupertino, DEC, EDS, Japan, Keysight, Medical, Midwest Sales, Norway, Response Center, Roseville, Santa Rosa, Southern California, Tandem, UK... Private, independent online forums operated and moderated by people from each community.

One way to block tracking by Facebook, Google, etc. is to use the non-profit Privacy Badger -- which also speeds up browsing. If a member, Facebook now allows you to easily adjust privacy settings -- which didn't used to be the case..)

Next-of-kin should report the death directly to the person's former employers -- to ensure that any benefits, pension, stock, or other issues are resolved. Member advice
