A great teacher, and a good friend.
Back a few posts I reported attending my 50th high school reunion in the New Trier Township, near Chicago. Classmate Gay Weake and I brought our favorite English teacher, Mr. Jopseph W. "Uncle Joe" McCloskey, a WWII B-24 copilot who flew in the Pacific, out of New Guinea among other places, and is now a mere 89 years old, to the event. He had a wonderful time there, as he was surrounded by admiring former students. Here is a photo from the Friday bash at the Renaissance Hotel in Northbrook, Illinois.
