So many great memories of times on the beach, at the pool, going to dinner and playing "Pass the Box" Prayers to Jean and the family.

Sincere condolences to Jean, Beverly, and families. Chick and I played together as kids, went to school (grammar + HHHS) together, and were co-members of the Jaycees. Though not recently, he was a part of my life; surprised and very saddened to hear the news.

We met Chick & Jean in the Florida Keys. We had much in common and clicked as couples immediately. We loved spending time with them in Florida as well as New Jersey. We will miss his humor and zest for life. Nola and Mel Harnish

Chick and I were buddies throughout elementary, middle, and high school in Hasbrouck Heights. We last spoke at length on the phone during the 40th Reunion, and all the good memories of days past flooded into our conversation, including washing the cellar floor of his house in a skid game we made up for the occasion. I loved his warm personality, and I am glad I remember it now. My sincere condolences, Jesse Gellrich (Baton Rouge, LA)
