Kiki was a teacher at Argo H.S. in Summit, IL. He was a librarian, media specialist and coach at Sahuarita Middle School in Sahuarita, AZ.
Mornings were for watching the news, having coffee, “lots” of coffee and reading the newspaper: checking the sports pages and reading the comics. He loved a good laugh. Evenings were on the deck watching the sunset with a glass of Sangria.
He felt at home in the desert and the mountains. He enjoyed the nature of the desert and its beauty.
His teams were “Da Cubs” and “Da Bears.” He also enjoyed college sports, especially Notre Dame and the University of Arizona football and basketball.
There are so many friends he treasured from childhood, high school, college, and Sahuarita schools. He will be greatly missed.
Thank you to all our friends and family for their kindness and support, especially John Flannery.
