A TRUE gentleman and scholar. Christmas without seeing you in your red jacket will not be the same.
Mr. Marlo was a wonderful and inspiring teacher. Many of my fondest memories from high school took place in the Student Prints room. He taught us about integrity as much as he taught us about journalism.
I will always remember. The lessons he taught were the greatest of great, and the finest of fine. He changed my life and direction for the better. God bless, and rest in peace.
Frederick M. Marlo not only taught journalism with enormous dedication and great expertise, he also taught it with STYLE. I remember him as a legendary, larger-than-life presence whose approval meant a great deal. He might best be described as “old school”, consistent as a stylebook in terms of formality and professionalism; his classroom persona always seemed elegant, an impression reinforced by everything from his suits to his automobile. Because he expected and inspired extraordinary effort, we were able to put together a first-class high school newspaper, and I was extremely proud to be part of that. I continue to make excellent use of everything from the editing skills to the life lessons I learned while I was his student. Thank you, Mr. Marlo!
"Mr. Marlo" is the reason I have had a successful career as a journalist. This devilishly handsome, dedicated teacher and his wife Anne became family to many of us who kept in touch long after our graduations. Loved you, miss you, rest in peach Marlo.

God Bless you, Frederico Carlo Masnaghetti Marlo. Uncle Fred was a second-cousin to my mother-in-law and it was truly an honor to get to know him. Uncle Fred wanted to know people, truly know people and that is so rare these days. May his wonderful spirit live on in all of those whose lives he touched and may we carry on some small part of his legacy.
With fond memories of "Marlo", the best teacher ever! He prepared me for college and many other of life's challenges. He will truly be missed.
Dear family my condolences and sympathy to you during this difficult time. Allow the God of comfort to be with you.
His light will always shine in our hearts.
Marlo was a Dad to me, as Anne was a mother. He is at peace with his beloved Anne. Everywhere we moved since leaving Reno I planted a Rose for Anne, her favorite: the Peace Rose. Now will plant one or a rhody for Marlo. He was one of the people who had the biggest impact on my life. As we celebrate our 20th anniversay in 2 wks, we remember he & Anne being there with us and I see the glass pitcher they gave us for our wedding in my curio every day. They were so loved, so missed.
In the way he approached every task with enthusiasm and energy, Mr. Marlo was a perfect teacher-by-example.

He was a most wonderful teacher and so was is wife, who was my third grade teacher! I loved them both very dearly.
Most of what he taught me appears no where in any dry text or on any chalk board. Having the privilege to work for Mr. Marlo as a photographer on both the SHS yearbook and The Student Prints was something I appreciated then, even as a kid oblivious to most blessings, but it became an appreciation that only grew with the years. We need more like him but I am not sure that is even possible in today's world. Thank you, Mr. Marlo!
A great teacher, strict yes. But fair. Enjoyed the brief time I knew him.
God Bless you Mr. Marlo. Rest in peace. Angelo Scribellito
Mr. Marlo taught us work ethic, responsibility, and decency, all with great humor. He taught respect for journalism, for deadlines, for co-workers. He taught us how to write. He was a wonderful teacher, mentor and a great influence. With warm memories and appreciation, Phil (Flip) Feldman (SHS '73)
I had Mr.Marlo for homeroom only. I always knew his journalism students had a very high regard for him. He was always a distinguished gentleman. SHS66
Our condolences to Rick and other survivors. We bought the Marlos' house when they moved to a condo 44 years ago. They had been great neighbors, and Fred & I shared the same birth date. His facility with words was amazing, and Connie & I looked forward to his frequent letters. He will remain forever a legend in Sylvania educational circles. Gordon Ward
Fred Marlo was an excellent teacher and role model as well as a truly great friend. He is now reunited with Anne, the love of his life. May they both rest in peace.
