There are so many wonderful memories that include Roger Pacos. He was a member of the Class of 1982 one of the most memorable of my time with the district. Not only was he an outstanding student, Roger was a respected colleague. He was generous with his time and talents with students, faculty, parents and the community. Roger and I pursued administrator certification together and his humor as well as his common sense often kept us on track. Knowing Roger has been an honor and a privilege and he will be missed. My sincerest condolences to his family. My hope is that memories of happier times with Rog will ease the grief of his passing.

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Pacos. He was one of my favorite teachers at Fredonia Central School. After all these years, I still have many of my shop projects. Mr. Pacos was also my drivers education teacher. He had kind caring way about him, and was very patient with us. He cared about his students and was always available to talk, not just about class but anything we came to him with. Teachers often don't know the impact they make on their students lives, even many years later. My thoughts are with his family.

Mr.Pacos was one of my favorite teachers durning my time at Fredonia. I remember him inviting me to collect maple syrup with him & Mr. Dawes shortly after my father's death. They kept me busy and were mindful of the situation, but never spoke about it. Roger was a great man, with a wonderful heart. He will be missed dearly.
