I write in part for Nancy Bond and of course myself, Bob Bond. Nancy cannot deal with this issue but would surely want to send her high regards and rest in peace for her Morrisville College friend, Joe Nassimos. I found myself taken aback by the photo of Joe and how much he smiled like my Dad, Maurice Bond, who also was on staff at Morrisville College before he left to earn a Phd at Cornell around 1923.

Roger and I always enjoyed Joe and Dee and their children during the 4 years we were their neighbors in Bouckville, NY! They threw great parties, shared wonderful family recipes for string cheese and pita bread and were always there, if the need arose! We will always remember Joe and his wife fondly! Our sincere condolences to their entire family.

I was in Mr. Nassimos's business math class at RFA when the principal announced that JFK had been assassinated. I can still remember him standing in front of the class and grabbing the back of his chair. We thought he was going to pass out. A distinguished honorable man who earned the respect he was given by students and faculty alike. Of all the teachers I had through primary school and college, he is one of the few that I remeber as having had a very positive impact on my life as he was a man one wanted to emulate. Rest in peace Mr. Nassimos.
