Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your father.
I had the pleasure of working with your Dad for many years in the Bridgeport Public Schools. He was a great teacher, administrator and a gentleman. Many of us enjoyed his dry sense of humor during many long meetings and difficult situations..
Iam sadded by his lost. He will be missed by his many colleagues in Bridgeport.
My thoughts and prayers are with Bob’s family..
