What an amazing legacy! To have known him has been a honor. Thankfully i could share a half centuryRead More as his neighbor and the final celebration of his life.

My family and I will miss seeing Niles at the many events he attended with the Finkelstein family asRead More well as of course his smiling face at the farm. The last time I saw him was on the way into Helen Hayes Hospital, where he gave me a big cheery hello even though on his back on a stretcher. That was Niles, a gem of a man. Our most sincere sympathies to all of his family, who need never worry that his name be forgotten. Bruce Gionet, Barbara Finkelstein, Alex, and Anna.

One of the many things that I always admired about Seeger is that when he was dragged before HUAC heRead More stood up for his principles. He didn't try to save his own career by naming names. His career suffered for decades because of the courage he showed protecting all of our right's to free speech and thought. When darkness and fear threatened to overtake the land Pete lit a candle and didn't go gently into the night.

It is a mighty tribute to Pete Seeger that all of us know the words to "This Land is YourRead More Land". Pete gave Woodie Guthrie's song to us. Pete also gave us the Gospel song "We Shall Overcome". Another song we sing with fervor. On his banjo, there is a circle of words, "This machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender." May we all think this way. Thank You Pete Seeger.

Very sad. He seemed like a very kind hearted man. I had the opportunity to email him in the pastRead More and he was very responsive. Sympathy to his family and friends.

Jeffrey was a valued and respected member of the Rockland Community Foundation. He could always beRead More counted on for his service and wisdom, and continually pushed to further the mission of our organization. An admired and awarded philanthropist, he was also an outstanding business executive, and was highly regarded by the members of the many boards on which he served. Above all, Jeffrey was a person of immense vision and wisdom who loved helping all who lived in Rockland. He will be sorely missed by the Rockland Community Foundation as well as all the people whose lives he touched.
Daniel Salmon September 18, 2013 at 08:32 pm
The term "he made a difference and he will be missed" are used many times. I can say toRead More all in Rockland County that when it comes to Jeffrey Keahon no truer words can be spoken. In the years that I had the pleasure to know him, no one worked harder and was more relentless then he, to make the lives of those who had any type of disability better.

We lost a good man who truly cared about this community called Rockland, and all who reside here.Read More Jeff, you were a friend and a partner in so many endeavors, and you can never be replaced. Rockland is a lesser place without your being among us.

A local legend lost. Beyond his love of family and they of him, his skills brought both justice andRead More closure to so many grieving families. Rest in Peace Dr. Zugibe; you will be missed by many and forgotten by none.

You were a good man John who brought humor to the school board. Rest in Peace
karen kasman June 18, 2013 at 08:35 am
Always a gentleman, you will be missed.
Robert Ward Kurkela June 18, 2013 at 10:55 am
John was one of the people who inspired me to get involved with school politics. I saw him stand upRead More and speak eloquently at the first meetings I attended a few years back. I also visited him at work one day in Town Hall so he could review some legal paperwork I was preparing. Albeit brief, I am grateful to John for the time he gave me so unselfishly and more importantly for the time he gave our children so unselfishly. He was truly a great man. Thanks, John.

RIP, I never met him but it sounds like he was a great person, my condolences to his family andRead More friends.
Mike Hirsch March 10, 2013 at 06:43 pm
Great quote Anthony, but I wouldn't get too upset with John Doe's comment. Even the best amongst usRead More will have their detractors.
Gloria March 19, 2013 at 02:02 pm
I didn't have the honor of knowing Mr Miele but, after reading about him he sounds like a wonderfulRead More man. The only part after reading that upsets me is of course due to John Doe, you give such a strong message and don't give your name to back your statements. Shame on you little boy!!! Rest in peace Mr Miele!!!
Aleta Fevola May 14, 2013 at 09:35 pm
When all other brokers at the time wanted "experienced" real estate salespersons, Mr.Read More Miele took me in as a "green" inexperienced new licensee who didn't even know how to get around Rockland County. He was a wonderful man, a true mentor, and a man who loved his family and country above all else. Rest in Peace Armand. You will be missed. Aleta
