Tuesday, June 18, 2019Was shocked and saddened to hear of Mr. Lupo's passing. I was one of his students at SPFHS (Class of 1973). Had him for several art classes and he was certainly one of my favorite teachers (and a favorite of others as well). I was fortunate to have found him on LinkedIn last year and share some memories with him. I mentioned how I enjoyed all my art classes with all the Art teachers, Ms Naumyk, Ms Young and of course, Mr Lupo! He replied with his thanks, saying "We had an excellent Art Dept. back then in Scotch Plains." They most certainly did.

Tuesday, June 11, 2019I had Richard Lupo as my ceramics teacher at SPFHS. He was a wonderful teacher; very patient, friendly and kind. He helped me explore my artistic side during my senior year. He told me I was the first student to attempt a chess board and pieces. Four years after graduating, I did my student teaching at North Brunswick Township High School. It was so great seeing Richard there after he changed jobs. I wish my deepest condolences. Richard was one of my favorite teachers and he led me to integrate the arts in my life and teaching.

Tuesday, June 11, 2019Our deepest condolences for a man gave so many so much. Frank was an excellent and joyful advisor in an amazing, breathtaking high school art program. I got accepted to Pratt Institute for Portrait Photography, then the Pratt Architecture program, and now Health Care Architect all from those early sparks.

Monday, June 10, 2019Hello Patricia, I graduated from SPFHS in 1978. Mr. Lupo ( Richard ) taught me all about photography my junior year. I still have the very first photo I developed. It was of a classmate's beautiful smiling face. He helped me with the purchase of my first 35mm SLR camera; a Canon AE1. I shot BW pix and learned from him how to develope neagative film and print photographs in the darkroom. It was a glorious time for me; I just loved the excitement of photography. I went on to shoot pix for the yearbook and the school newspaper. I know he had everything to do with the football coach asking me to give up cheerleading my senior year and be the team photogrpaher. That decison changed my life; for I went on to Brooks Institue of Photographic Arts & Science and received a BA in Professional Illustratvie Photogrpahy. Worked in the photo industry in LA for several years before moving to Colorado and owning a successful portrait business for over 20 years. I am now semi retired ( husband transferred to Houston ). Your dear husband set the course for my life! He was always warm and light hearted. He was just such a great teacher! Patient and positive; he was always there to answer questions. He was such a lovely man. I regret that I didn't keep in better touch with him, but he knew that I went on to photo school because of him. I am so sorry for your loss and hope that with each day the pain in your heart is replaced by joyous memories. Should you have any interest to see my work, please visit my website: wendybfotos.com. Funny; it's the black and white portraits that became my signature, and it all started with Mr. Lupo. Forever grateful, Wendy
