  6. Frank, Molly, Joe, Julie and Betsy…you all provided some of the best memories for me and so many others at West Ridge Elementary. Frank with that thick black curly hair…always asking me where mine went to. In my young mind, you were the all-American family. A real man’s man for a dad, a beautiful mom and three unbelievable kids. How fortunate for me that our paths crossed. My love to all of you.

  17. Mr. Posato was my favorite teacher in High School at Olympia. He was a great teacher–passionate and interesting, but most importantly, he was a great person. May he rest in peace.

  18. Mr. Posato was my homeroom teacher for 4 years while I attended Greece Olympia. I graduated in 75. I remember him to be the nicest, kindest man. He was my favorite teacher all through high school. I had often thought of him over the years and wished that I had kept in touch with him. He will be truly missed. My prayers are with his family.

  19. Mr. Posato was my teacher in the late 70’s. He was always a gentleman, mentor and a leader. Rare are we to find someone in society today with Mr. Posato’s qualities. RIP Mr. Posato; you inspired many people to be good citizens.

  20. My thoughts and prayers to the Posato family. Mr. Posato was always my favorite teacher ever since 7th grade at Hoover Drive. I remember he said he liked our class so much he decided to move up to 8th grade with us and then on to Olympia 9th-12th. He was always patient and understanding. A great teacher.

  22. We are so sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. I knew him when I was a young boy when he lived at 211 Davis St. at the home of my grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Siracusa. My parents were good friends with Fanny and Joe. I spent the entire summer at my grandma;s house so we got to be good friends. He and Barbara were such great kids…..I remember them well. I have already send you an email, Molly, and I will send you a picture of Frank and Barbara taken on VJ day in front of my Grandma’s house. Our sincerest sympathy to you……our prayers are with you, your children, with Barbara and you entire family. God Bless you all, RIchard (Dick) Cavallare
