I graduated with him 1966 at Steinert High School in Hamilton, N.J. Lost contact when I moved to Florida in 1971. I retired from the Marion County Sheriff's Dept . in 2007. He was a friend of mine. I didn't even know he got married and had children. I was sorry to hear that he passed away. A great man!
