Graduated in 1983.
I lived in Montvale in 1972 until 1974. Moved away and moved back in 1980
after the incident occured. Attended Pascack Hills. Everyone knew what
happened. Everyone quietly expressed their opinions. Didn't really help
the DeleRoache family.
Back then we had football for young kids. I think Mr. DeleRoche was my
coach. Typical guy, I liked him. My family did'nt hav a lot of money, he
offered to pick me up to and from practices. Football just wasn't my thing
and Eric used to get my back constantly about missing them. I remember
trying to avoid him in the hallways of the school.
As for PHHS. They had their share of bullies. I knew several. I'm sure the
prior generations of bullies must have been worse. Never thought twice about standing up for myself though.
I agree with Mr. Hanna. Nothing great can come of this movie. For all the poor memories we have of the school attendies we also have a lot of great ones too.
