I was so sorry to hear of Mr. Quinn's passing; I have fond memories of his science class at Parkway in the late 70's. He will be in my prayers.

Ed and I started teaching at Parkway together in 1958. I enjoyed many hours of conversation with him at lunchtime and during breaks. I was also pleased to have interaction with his wife and children as a guidance counselor in high school. I haven't seen them in years but I will always remember them as a class family. Please accept my sincere condolences.

A very inspiring teacher that made Science class at Parkway School in the early '80s interesting and fun.
