What a wonderful Drama teacher Mr. A was. But above all that, he always made me feel loved and appreciated. He made High School fun. I see from all the messages here that I was not the only one whose life he touched. To have brought so much joy to so many people....what a wonderful legacy.
Mr. Alberico was my light and inspiration for 3 years at LB Jordan High School drama - from 1965 to 1968. He brought out the comedic actress in me, and gave me self confidence. I learned comedy timing and just plain fun from him. We all loved him dearly. Carol Beeson Dukes /68 Long Beach Jordan
Mr. Alberico was my Drama teacher at Long Beach Jordan High School in 1959 and 1960. He believed more in me than I did. I tried out for a small part in "Rebel Without A Cause" and Mr. Alberico let me have the leading role that James Dean played in the movie. Those were truly great days to be in high school, especially with Mr. Alberico's positive and infectious attitude and sense of humor. I will never forget him, nor will my classmates.
Dad, I think about you all of the time and I appreciate all of the sacrifices that you made to raise your children. Even though the miles separated us over the last 21 years or so and our paths seldom crossed, I always knew that your thoughts were with us. Ryan and Katie were priviledged to receive some brief but treasured moments with you as grandchildren. You always lit up a room with your charm and storytelling. You never forgot to give us special wishes during birthdays and holidays. You helped make me a true Mountaineer fan and I'll miss our conversations about Major Harris, Bobby Bowden, Rich Rodriguez, Bill Stewart, John Beilein, Bob Huggins, and all of the great Mountaineer players whose contributions to WVU sports hang on the walls of our souls. I'm glad that you're reunited with mom. There is no more suffering. May you rest in peace. Love Always, Christopher
I wonder if Mr. A knows now how many, many people he impacted as a teacher. I, for one, will never forget him. The sense of humor I learned to nurture and my ability to extemporise and teach came from you Mr. A. God rest your beautiful soul.
