This list was originally compiled from obituary notices and other sources including the Tucson Gay
LGBTQ Museum And Library®©, the Arizona Gay News and later by The Observer
for a period of time appearing in each year’s Memorial Day Edition until it was no longer sustainable.
It included information received from the Pact For Life, Tucson AIDS Project, the Tucson Chapter of the Shanti Foundation, the public,
police and law enforcement, death certificates, various other newspaper obituaries, the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation,
Tucson Gay LGBTQ Museum And Library researchers, and many other sources. It is not a complete list by any means but has been updated
as possible by the Tucson Gay LGBTQ Museum And Library®© for many years.
