Found this picture from December 2017 lunch at the Dutch House.
Chuck Fatigati, Rocky Royer, Tom Bocchino and I would get together for lunch a few times a year to reminisce about growing up in Fair Lawn. Lots of good memories from grade school through FLHS. In recent years it became more and more difficult for Tom to join us as his Parkinson's disease progressed. We visited him at his home about a week before he passed. Glad we were able to get together one more time. You will be missed my friend. RIP.
