I miss him very much. he served in Viet Nam came home married, had a great job, loved sailing, lived in San Fransico until the earth quake then moved to Arkansaw, passed away in 1993 of cancer I miss you brother

Our lives intersected at the start of sixth grade at St. Joseph's Catholic School. That was Terry's first year there and he remained there until our  eighth grade "graduation" in  June 1962. We didn't come across each other until the beginning of the class's sophomore year as I attended St Philip's during ninth grade. Terry always gave me the impression of an unassuming, unpretentous, genuine person- that is, an all around nice guy. I possibly saw him for the final time in the spring of 1986 in San Francisco, where I had been living since June 1981. We happened upon each other in a lobby hotel. He was wearing a suit. However, we didn't recognize each other though we had wondering expressions. On my part, I thought he resembled Terry Scalici but, as he looked nearly as he did in high school, I concluded that he couldn't have been him. I concluded that Terry also would have been thirty eight at the time; thus wouldn't have looked so youthful. About a year later, when I stopped into Cole's Clothing, I mentioned that encounter to Roger Davis, who was then still the manager of that store. He confirmed  that Terry and I had indeed happened upon each other, saying,"You would've recognized him. He was living in San Francisco" It's too bad I didn't know that person in that hotel lobby was Terry Scalici. Had I known, I would have invited him for a drink- preferably two- at a downtown place so we could reminisce about "the good old days". And the drinks would have been on me though Terry likely would have protested.
