I worked with Walter at Bergen Community College and always found him to be very courteous, intelligent, humane and supportive whenever our paths crossed. He had a sense of humor that kept many of us laughing in some stressful times (e.g. long hours during registration). He made the world better by being in it! Sincerely, Peggy O'Neill, Retired International Counselor
So sorry to hear about this. May the Lord comfort you all. I enjoyed his talks and great sense of humor!
I never had Dr. C as a teacher, but remebmer well his smiling face on campus. Prayers are with your
So sorry for your loss.

Marta and family. I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Dr C. He was an amazing person that I use to enjoy speaking to a lot. Briarcliff times were great times.We all enjoyed that small college so much. I was sorry that our reunion we had in 2003 that you both were unable to attend.You both were missed greatly and lots of people asked about you both.It was great to see so many people there all together once again.
Dr.C. was a wonderful caring and excellent teacher too as well as a special person. We all are better to of had him in our lives, especially in our youth where his teaching made such a difference to us all.
Thinking of you all at this time.

I was one of Dr. Chizinsky's students at Briarcliff. He profoundly affected my life by giving me an interest in biology - which I had managed to avoid and swore I would never take again after a horrible class in high school. He opened my eyes to how amazing biology is and gave me a book by his grad school friend Eugenie Clark. It was that book that made me decide to be a marine biologist - which I have been since 1974. I love my life and if it weren't for him I would never have gone down this path. I have often tried to find out where he was. At least I found this on Facebook - Briarcliff. My best wishes to you his family. He was a wonderful man and he will be missed. He certainly blessed my life.
