Gary moved to Brewster, NY in the 80's.  He was divorced from his wife, Joanne, but they had 2 sons and a daughter together.  He passed away in 2009 after a bout with cancer.  He was always smiling and will be remember as a great guy.  RIP Gary.

I had the pleasure of teaching Gary Alleva Jr. in kindergarten in Yonkers.  What a delightfully intelligent child he was and his mom, Joanne  . . . a lovely, caring lady and mother who I keep in touch with to this day!
