This is to inform Anacostia Alumni of the death of my husband, Harry J. Bacas. Harry passed away on September 25, 2014 after a brief illness. Harry died of leukemia as a result of exposure to Agent Orange after serving two tours in Vietnam. He loved his years at Anacostia HS. and always spoke fondly of the many friendships made through the years. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery overlooking his beloved Washington, D.C. If you ever travel to Arlington National Cemetery you can visit at Harry's gravesite at Section 55, Grave 1155. Harry loved his country and fought for our freedom. He is deeply missed by all of our family.
