I join with so many others who knew Mr. Christy in offering their deepest sympathy on his passing away.
Mr. Christy is not only a Physics teacher but also a guide to so many of us, his students.
In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day's work. It is invisible and remains so, for many years , maybe even after his passing away.
I personally took liking to him don't know because of his person or because of physics how ever he was a role model a fine loveable person.
May He Rest in Peace.
Louis Rasiah & Family
