In Memoriam: Remembering those we lost in 2020

There are a couple of old sayings that sum up our feelings when important people in our lives pass away.

The “ranks are thinning,” you will hear, as well as that “the cemeteries are filled with irreplaceable people.”

In the year 2020, amid the global coronavirus pandemic, we’ve heard these sayings often.

The following is a list of obituaries published by The Suffolk Times for Southold area residents and public figures who died in 2020.
