Obituary of Ralph Baccouche
« on: Thursday 21 December 17 23:46 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for an obituary of Ralph Baccouche, born 1929 in Tunisia.  He could also be known as Raouf Baccouche or possibly Fouad Baccouche.  I believe he died on 5 January 1959 and is buried in Long Island National Cemetery East Farmingdale, Suffolk County, New York.

Thanks, I'd appreciate that.  He is a distant inlaw who I met once or twice as a child but I don't remember what he looked like and then he died very young.

Would this be worth a try -  ??? There is a lady listed in RAOGK Suffolk County who will do look ups in Newsday.  (E.laG - seems to be listed twice on this list)
