Like Lynn Laurenti, I was Mr. Mag’s sixth-grade student in Woodcliff Lake. I think I can speak on behalf of my fellow sixth graders when I say that we all loved Mr. Mag. He was, among other things, an avid soccer player. During recess every day in the schoolyard he taught us boys how to dribble, pass the ball and make goals. He was all but religious in his devotion to what Latinos call “futbol.” Because of Mr. Mag I forced my parents to buy me a regulation soccer ball. I spent hours at home in my backyard practicing and, I thought, became quite good at the sport. Mr. Mag died a few days short of this year’s World Cup finale. I could go on here and describe his wondrous classroom antics, his innumerable ways of endearing himself to us students and teaching us how to write—as I’m writing now. To make a long story short and return to soccer, let me use the Spanish words and say that for me personally, hands down, P. J. Maglione wins La Copa Mundial.

Mr. Mag was my sixth grade teacher at Woodcliff Lake Elementary School in 1952. He changed my life by recognizing and honoring my individuality. He praised my writing, which prompted me to pursue a very successful career as a journalist and PR writer. I had the immense pleasure of seeing Mr. Mag on two occasions over the past 10 years, when he was passing through Fort Lauderdale on vacation. I'm so glad that I told him all his mentorship meant to me. He was a gifted teacher and a wonderful person who touched so many lives.

None who knew him or were blessed to have him as a teacher will forget him! Mr. Mag was the best. He made me love coming to class. An outstanding teacher and friend and for many years a neighbor. You will be missed by all. My condolences to the family. I will remember you always.

Mr. 'Mag' was not my teacher - he taught the other 6th grade class at Edgemont Elementary School in Montclair NJ. How lucky the other class was to have him for a teacher. We got to see him for shared activities. He always made us laugh and easily got us to cooperate. A joint class trip to NYC was that much more fun because he was part of it. He's always been a model for me of what makes a good teacher.
My condolences to Helen and family,

"Mr. Mag" was my 6th grade teacher. I have a picture of him with the rest of my classmates at Edgemont Elementary above my desk. He was one of the most dedicated and beloved teachers I have ever experienced; and he touched many more the same way. Rest in Peace, Mr. Mag.
