As a student at Shadyside High I remember being impressed at his ability as principal to remember every student, including myself, by name. He made a connection with everyone.

I am very sorry to hear of Mr. Falbo’s passing. I used to see him walking on my morning drives to work and give him a little wave. May he now rest in peace. Sincere condolences to the family.

Larry, Becky and Dina,
What a swell dad you had. With a sincere wide smile and a twinkle in his eye, it’s difficult to really say goodbye. But remember too, he is now with our Father. and his smile is even brighter. and the twinkle in his eye is now a star. God bless you and your families.

Mr. Falbo will be fondly remembered for his ever present smile and kind word for everyone he encountered. He greeted former students by name long after we graduated, which never ceased to amaze us. He had high expectations of students to do and be their best not just in the school environment, but in our community as well.
To Mr. Falbo’s family and friends, I extend heartfelt condolences and hope your memories of times shared brings you some comfort.
