Christopher West left a message on March 1, 2020:
Mr. Gaynor was my favorite teacher at Handley (Class of '97). He chaperoned a field trip up to the NYSE and got us on the floor of the exchange. That entire trip was so memorable because of him and his fun personality. He made it feel more like a family vacation then a school event Another field trip we went to DC and did a river cruise with our marketing class, and I remember him dancing to the song "Come on Ride That Train". He was a blast to hang out with. His class was one of the few i worked overly hard to get an "A" in because he made it interesting and because we as students could see that he too was putting in the time and effort, to make his class fun and engaging, which made his students want to learn and do well. Helluva teacher and mentor! My sincere condolences to the family.

I was blessed to have Charlie as my Marketing Teacher at JHHS. He stopped in at our 1985 Class reunion years ago and it was nice to be able to tell him personally his impact on my life and the business I own due to his influence in his class. His mentorship in high school geared me to be a entrepreneur later in life. Prayers and condolences to his family and all those he touched with his knowledge and education. Sandra (Adams) Borror
