Not sure what to say?

Joe was a great role model. There was another good coach which I played under Bill Powley the Teaneck Soccer coach.
Teaneck High was a great school and the 50-60 were fantastic years. People were civilized. We never had bullying problems unlike today where kids shot other kids. I believe the Internet and technology is the downfall of Humanity.
Texting and driving, watching violent games on TV and cell phones. Kids have lost all morals. We have become a ME,Me,Me generation not...

There are only a very few people that you meet in a lifetime who you can say really helped you to develop into the person that you are. Joe Cervino, was one such person for me, and I know for a number of other classmates.

He not only taught social studies to our class but also spent many extra months each year coaching football and baseball. As a coach he, and of course Mr. Charlie Gunner and Mr. Jack Armstrong and others, taught the games of football and baseball to young...

I played varsity as a junior in 1976. 2 of my greatest sports memories came form coach Cervino(by the way I just learned of his passing 2weeks ago and was upset I couldn't make the funeral )first memory I was up with runners on first and second, Ridgewoods all county pitcher on the mound and he intentnenly walked the guy before me to load the basses. Coach called me over and said boy did they make a mistake, I wasn't as sure as he was, with 2 strikes I hit a grand slam. Went to Ramapo college...

Coach Cervino, I was one of the Captains of the 1976 THS team. We were playing Ridgefield Park, and I tagged up from 3rd base, I was out at home plate, I've never saw you so mad, you punched a light post and hurt your hand. We lost the game, but I learned so much that day, from you. You taught me that you can't get buy on talent alone, and you still have to work hard to accomplish your goals. I learned a lot from you Coach, and wanted to thank you for everything you did for me. ...

So very sorry to hear about the passing of Joe Cervino. It was a pleasure for my wife and I to have met and gotten to know him during our time at the New Milford Presbyterian Church. May God comfort and sustain you during this difficult time.

On behalf of Teaneck High School's class of 1960, we honor not only how he coached us and taught us toward academic and athletic excellence, but for his outstanding heroism during the Battle of the Bulge in WW II. Bonnie Morrow

Coach Rest In Peace! You were the man I wanted to be! Condolences to your Family!
