He taught gym and math for over 30 years, leaving his impression on the school forever. When he died, he left a large hole in the community and the lives of the students.

    I watched this on Faceboak. It would bring a tear to a glass eye.
    They're gone, not here, forgotten
    The maroon brigade now cry
    The city is now Hibernian
