Friends We'll Miss

Casper College mourns the loss of members of our alumni family.

This page is dedicated to our alumni, friends, faculty, staff,  and members of the community who are no longer with us. We hold them in our hearts and minds as we cherish the memories of the times spent together.  If you have a friend or loved one to add, please contact us at 307-268-2218.

Please note: This list includes updates reported by family members, newspapers, and other sources. Friends you see here have been added within the current year. 


Memorial Gifts

A gift to education is a particularly meaningful way to pay tribute to someone special in your life. We are happy to notify honored designees or the family members of those remembered with your gifts if you provide appropriate contact information when you make donations. If you plan to make a memorial scholarship fund, a notice can be placed at the end of the obituary stating: In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorials being sent to the Casper College Foundation, 125 College Dr., Casper, WY 82601
