Mr. Smiler was my elementary school music teacher at what was then C.S. 102 in the Bronx and my mother’s neighbor in Parkchester. I was so surprised when I found out he was her neighbor! Small world. When he would call out attendance he would always sing a little song that went with our last name. He would sing, Rolling down the river when he got to my name. Sweet memories. May he Rest In Peace. My condolences to the family.

Mr. Smiley was my elementary school music teacher. I loved his songs. He used to call me Sally Salami Baloney. I never forgot him. I joined chorus in high school, participated in musicals, and my own daughter graduated high school last month and SHE had been in chorus since fourth grade. He will be missed. Please know how dearly he touched my life as I know he did many others.

My sincerest and deepest condolences.
