I'm glad I got my dead DG out of the tank in time! I almost waited until I got home from school so I could take him down to the lake by my house (I found him in the morning), but I didn't want Squirt to be infected so I had to give him a hasty ceremony at the toilet.

Not a good idea to flush dead fish or in any other way allow them in to local water ways...

Where I live, the waste flushed goes into the sewer, so no harm done to the local fish!

It's not for that reason - water treatment plants are designed to deal with the ordinary contents of a toilet, and may not manage to eliminate all traces of medication and/or fishy disease. They can also cause blockages, as they don't break down the same way that waste does.

this may be a bit of a morbid question, but it is something we will all have to deal with at some point. What is the proper way to dispose of a dead fish?

I was just going to ask this! I had also just been giving them the quick Flush Ceremony. But I'd certainly be interested in a proper way rather than harm something.

I thought that it was not transmitable to other fish. Where did you read this?
