We offer our condolences to Miller's family in this time of your loss. My wife and I crossed paths on Old Mine Road many times as he road his 25 mile loop. We'd stop to share some stories with him. He always made us smile. I would run into him at The Mill and have lunch with him. He will be sorely missed. I am sure that Miller is smiling at us knowing that he touched so many lives. God bless you all!
I was sorry to read of the passing of Mr. Romeo. I had him for a semester of English and enjoyed his class. He once took firm pity on me for sleeping during a class. He did not send me to the vice-principal's office, but he let me know he did not appreciate it. The one thing that I remember him for, and this was one of the strongest teaching moments during my time in high school, happened during a junior varsity football game. We had three or four victories under our belts, but were having a very tough time with Warwick. At halftime he said to us, in a strong and heated tone, "You guys can dish it out, but you can't take it." We went on to have an undefeated season. Mr. Romeo was not soft as a coach. He could be tough, but he could be encouraging. His demeanor was excellent and attests to his popularity as a teacher and a coach.
Those halftime words of his have stayed with me for about 44 years. I use them to measure others, but more importantly, to measure myself.
Sincere condolences with highest regards, Mike Misczuk
I was so shocked and saddened to hear of George's passing. George and I graduated in the same class from Matamoras High School in 1956 and enlisted in the USAF a month later, along with Jack Balch, Mike DeAngelo and "Pete" Masker. Pete passed away recently also and Mike many years ago. George was one of a kind and will be missed by those who knew him. My sincere sympathies to his entire family. God Bless.
Hi Ken and Gloria - Jim and I send our love and sympathy to you at this most difficult time. Your mom was blessed with a long and wonderful life. I am sure that her children, grand children, and great-grandchildren have been a joy and comfort in her life. Warmly, Jim and Judy McElroy
I have not heard the name John Romeo for many years.
John Romeo was a great teacher who taught us to think and discuss after our reading assignments. No doubt one of the finest teachers and nicest guys I have ever met. His family needs to know that Mr. Romeo made a difference in the lives of many students and we are appreciative of his first class professionalism.
His passion for excellence is fondly remembered by this guy who will turn 62 in May. Yes it has been many years.. but I can still visualize that warm smile and keen intellect.
He will be missed..but never forgotten.

Geri, I am so sorry to hear about John's passing. I remember him as a wonderful teacher and I know you two were very happy together. Sorry I can't be there for the funeral, but you and the family are in my thoughts and prayers.
