On January 24, 2013, George Toriello sent me information on

A tribute from a class mate mentions that he attended and may have graduated from Garfield High School. This name was gathered when Joe DeFalco was principal, and had students gather names of people who attended Hackensack Schools and served in the armed forces. I do not know the story behind this name as of April 10, 2013. With this understanding, we post this material and remember his sacrifice.
