Condolence: Mr Speranzini was my favorite teacher. I owe him my love of Science. First day of class, once we settled, Mr Speranzini told the last row to move to the first row and the rest move back one row. We were to cycle back one row every Monday :) I was never the target (That I remember) but you stayed quiet or became the target of whatever he had in his hand at the time. His suit collection was extensive, my friend kept track on the back of his notebook and Mr Speranzini rarely wore the same suit twice. Maybe mixed the pants and jackets a little but even that you could count on your fingers. Thank you kind Sir, rest in peace. Vincent
Condolence: Dear Sasha and family, I am very sorry for the loss of your Pappa. I know you will find comfort in your memories.
" Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance."

Condolence: To the families, sincerest condolences. You know more than the many students and friends how he will be missed. He was my home-room teacher for 3 years and Math/Science teacher for 4 years and defended some of us many times. He was a friend to many of my uncles and my father and was sage in his advice to all. We had a great trip one year in his station wagon. Highly respected by all.
Sorry we missed his funeral. Last saw Mr. Speranzini at his wife's.
Whenever I was back in Welland, I would usually see him at church and we always had a good conversation. I was and am proud to have known him.
Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. May the peace that comes from the memories of your father comfort you now and in the days ahead.
Condolence: Joe & Irena, I am sorry for your loss & that I am not available to express my condolences in person. I remember distinctly when your dad attempted to teach SI Units in class. “Miss Thompson, surely there could be nothing simpler. It’s multiples of 10. What don’t you understand?” He was a great teacher and stimulated my love of math & science. Margaret
Condolence: Irene and Joe and family. My deepest sympathy on the death of your father. He was a great guy and an even greater teacher. Sorry I couldn't make the funeral home--I have a mobility problem, but my wishes and prayers are with you all at this time.
Condolence: Irene and Joe (and family)- I'm so sorry for your loss. Hard to forget your father's classes at ND; lots of great memories from those days. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family; my thoughts are with you,
Condolence: Dear Joe, Irene and the entire Speranzini family. Our deepest condolences for the loss of your Dad. While I knew him best as an excellent teacher, I also know he was a devoted husband and a loving father. May your many years of memories with him help carry you thru this difficult time.
