We are saddened to announce that James T. Fay, a longtime BTU teacher and member of the RTC chapter, has passed away after a long illness. Jim leaves his loving wife, Judy, his sister, Mary, his nieces, other family members, as well as many, many friends and former colleagues, who are all saddened by his passing. Jim fought long and valiantly for three years against a series of health problems, and throughout his illnesses maintained his sense of humor, his will to live, his strong spirit and his love of adventure. Jim was a long-time BTU building rep and served the BTU well for decades, just as he served the BPS in a variety of capacities, most recently at the Russell School. For many years in Jim’s retirement, he worked as a substitute teacher, going to work every day to East Boston High School, and coming over to the BTU office nearly as often with a supply of pastries for our secretaries from his favorite bakery in East Boston. Jim was a friend, a gentleman, and a good person. We miss him already. Please see obituary here. The BTU sends its most sincere condolences.
We are also saddened to announce the passing of Mr. Elio J Delessio, a teacher in the BPS and a valued member of the RTC. Mr. Delessio taught for twenty years and then served the BTU RTC chapter for many years. He will be sorely missed by his friends and former colleagues. The BTU send its most sincere condolences. Please see his obituaryhere.
