He was a mentor to me. I'm now a Major in the Army and I owe much of my success because of his work. I wish I could have seen him before he passed.

Is this man one who lived in Danbury, CT? If so, we were neighbors and good friends in the 1950's. My deepest sympathy. He was a good person.

Sgt. Chiavuzzi was my teacher in JROTC at Lake Wales High School. He was a great teacher and am pretty sure he was a great husband, father and grandfather. He taught me how to be respectful and humble in the way that he taught me. My prayers are with his family and may God keep you all in this great loss.
