Longtime Watertown High School music teacher and big band leader Frank Sacci died last week at the age of 84:

 

My senior year, Mr. Sacci took the HS band to a perfect score performance in NYSMA and continued to endear himself to generations of school students. He will truly be missed.

A.J. Carman
