New Students: JOSEPH
GALLAGHER, from Central likes our open lunch
system, but didnít like coming back to school. He
says the only difference between Mt. Penn and
Central is that there are no nuns at Mt. Penn.
Joseph enjoys drag racing in his free time.
passed away not too long after graduation
as a result of a motorcycle accident...
have many, many fond memories of Joey. Not only was he one of the
funniest people I have ever met, he was one of the nicest, most down to
earth people, too. He would do anything for anybody and not ask or
expect anything in return. I was living in Rhode Island when I got the
call about his death and though I'm not an emotional person I cried like
a baby. I didn't get back to Reading much he was always the first
person I'd visit. This picture is one of the few I have of Joey, it hangs
on my refrigerator so I see him every day." -- Bob Painter
