To his wife an children please accept my deepest sympathy to you all. Mr Sichi was my 6th grade teacher in 71/72 I believe it was his first year of teaching in 37th Street school in Beaver Falls. I remember him fondly an speak of him often from this poor kid from Morado Dwellings . I believe he was instrumental in getting my sister an I coats from a shop in downtown BF , maybe called Youth Center. I called my brother who remembers him as well he had him the following year. He. Told me he did cement work for him in BF . Remembers asking him ( why elementary school ) he stated he thought he could have a better chance at getting hired as women seemed to have jobs . Thank you for memories Linda Hobbs Ippolito.

I remember Mr. Sichi fondly as the principal of 37th Street Elementary School in Beaver Falls, PA. He taught sixth grade, and his students loved him. I am glad to learn that he lived a good long life and had a loving family.

Dear Rosalye and family, Carl and I would like to extend our sympathy to you on Ernie’s death. I was his first teacher to be hired when he became principal at South Elementary in Beaver Falls School District. I loved working under him and found him so easy to talk to and funny. He and others followed the romance and eventual marriage between this second year teacher and the handsome student teacher. We’ve thought of him often over the years.

Sorry my dates were wrong when he taught me at 37th street school. Corrected dates were 1957/1958 for 6th grade.
