I remember Mr.Costa from Memorial School around 1961. I didn’t have him as a teacher but I guess I remember him from the playground. He had wireless glasses and I was fascinated by them. As a shy 5th grader, I remember him being very friendly always with a smile. My sincere condolences to his family. Nancy Nevins

Sincere sympathy to Irene and his two daughters. I was blessed to know him, work with him and laugh with him. He was a dedicated educator who gave all of his best efforts to teach and guide his students. He had a positive impact on so many. What a wonderful way to be remembered! Mike and Susanne DeSimone.
