To the Savino family, I was so very sorry to hear that Mr. Savino passed away. I have long lasting memories of him both as a friend of the family, neighbor and Chemistry tutor.
Just knowing that he would be at every football game and wrestling match during HS added to the feeling of family we all had back in the mid 1980’s. We all knew he would be there to give his support, not only for his boys, but for the entire team and programs.
People like Mr. Savino don’t come along often and it was my pleasure in knowing him as I did. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs. Savino, Mike, Louie, Don and the rest of the extended family.

Don, along with a handful of others came together to get me through PJHS. He had the ability to connect with students in a way that you wanted to make him proud. I know many others who also attribute knowing Mr. Savino as a factor in their successes in life. My thoughts are with Mrs Savino, Don, Louie, Mike and the rest of the Savino Family today.

I’ll miss my Lion friend at the morning Christmas tree lot this year. His gruff external demeanor hid his worldly adventures of life. Teacher, principal, guitarist and music aficionado, and quick wit.

So sad. He was an awesome man with a great, kind and loving family. Was proud to call him a friend.
