Page 10 * POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 2, 2010 by Bob DeCristoforo Left to Right: Mrs. Sullivan, Berna Coppola and Sister Patricia Linehan, SND. OH! WHAT A NIGHT, THE CLASS OF 85! Christopher Columbus High School Class of 1985 celebrated their 25th Anni- versary Reunion on Satur- day, March 28th at the Coast Guard Base Function Hall on Commercial Street. It was a fine time, and a memory filled time, and the hard work of the Committee certainly paid off. I enjoyed watching the "kids" walk in, and meet- ing up with their old and still friends. The expressions on their faces were priceless. A reunion is a good time and for the Columbus Class of 85 it was a very good time. Sis- ter Patricia, Mrs. Malinn- Sullivan, and I "Thank You" all for the invite. It was a "special night." We all shared one same thought. Christo- pher Columbus High School was a small school with a big heart, a great place, and we all miss it. "UNCLE" TONY We said goodbye to another good man this week. Tony Torosian was a big part of the Columbus High School Ath- letic Program. His nephew, Jack Torosian, coached the Columbus Girls Basketball Team for many years and Tony was at his side at ev- ery game. He was an "unof- ficial coach," and as a mem- ber of our Columbus Family, we called him "Uncle Tony." He lived in South Boston, and every time I met him, he would mention the Co- lumbus kids, and asked how they were doing. I met him in Southie just about two weeks ago, and once again he asked the question, how are my kids? Tony was a young 75, and this Easter Sunday he is home with God. ST.
