I had Mr. Lupo for a science teacher 2 years ago. I never forgot him and probably never will. He was the best teacher I've ever had. I always look back now that I'm in High School and actually tell other teachers,

I was stunned to learn of Bill's passing. I met Bill at the gym some time ago and I can safely say he was extremely well liked. We often spoke, and although we didn't know each other very well, his charm and friendly nature left an impression on me. My heart goes out to his friends and family. He will be missed.

I was shocked and beside myself when I heard the news from other gym members @ Clubfit on Monday. Billy had such a passionate and caring personality and was devoted to everything he did. He will be greatly missed:(

Bill Lupo was the greatest science teacher ever. I had him 25 yrs ago and since then I would run into him periodically. He was the most wonderful person with a great sense of humor. May God bless his family in this trying time. an ex student....patti

Mr. Lupo was a really great teacher. Whenever i was in a bad mood, he could always make me smile. How could you NOT smile with that *12 cm smile*. We all used to think that rocks were SOOO boring...and they are. But we were lucky to have him as a teacher...we could have been writing notes all day, and then taking tests at the end of the week. Lucky for us, Mr. Lupo let us work with partners on almost everything..and we got to do fun activities. I think we all never really realized how easy we had it. Mr. Lupo used to say how we were the best project pass class that he had ever had, and now...we were his last. I know that there are A LOT of people that are going to miss him. He will be missed and loved, forever and always.

I will miss his smile, jokes, but most of all his sincerity. He was a good man! My heart goes out to his family and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Mr. Lupo was areally great teacher and friend to everyone who met him. In class he always noticed the littlest things about his students, like when one was having a bad day. He always hada way to cheer me up when I was sad. He taught me alot this year, if it wasn`t for him..I wouldn't know what an igneous rock is. :) Mr. lupo will be greatly greatly missed. Not just by the 8th grade project pass, but by the whole city of Pawtucket.
