Mr. Remian was my teacher in the 70s at Shepherd Hill, as well as my father's teacher in the 50s at Cole Trade. What an amazing and storied life, well beyond the teaching, with the WWII facts. He never whispered a hint of that when I knew him so many years ago. He is simply an amazing man. As we say in the Navy: fair winds and following seas, Mr. Remian.

Hands down one of the best teachers I had the pleasure of learning from back at Shepherd Hill a long time ago. One day after breaking up a fist fight he encouraged us to join the YMCA and take up boxing and even showed us a few moves. He always challenged us to always be our best no matter what we did. Godspeed Mister Remian. Learned to love you then and always will..............!
