I know it is a little after the fact, but I was a student of Mr. Sebelle. I just would like anyone who reads this, or who was also a student of his to remember what a great and interesting man he was. He touched alot of people, and educated some many, not with just books, but with life experiences and a kind heart.

Edward J Sebelle was one of the finest human beings to ever set foot on our planet. His handiwork is evident in hundreds if not thousands of BE graduates. Even though he is in a much better place, he is missed! God Bless and God Speed EJS!

comments are heart warming. Uncle Eddie was a fascinating and dedicated person. He was always warm and friendly. We enjoyed getting him to talk about "the old days". Not many people realize that this gentle and deeply religious man stormed the beach at Normandy on D-Day. It saddened us greatly that he lost his mental acuity the last years of his life. Even when his short term memory was gone he was able to recall past students at Bailey and he retained his smiling and jovial manner. He will be sorely missed but not forgotten.

When I went through BEHS, Mr Sebelle was my teacher for two years of Latin and then Economic
Geography. My Latin is still with me after many years and several trips to Rome. When I was a senior, he encouraged me to go into teaching.
I am now a history professor.

Mr Sebelle was my English Teacher. I was class of 79. He also taught my mom Latin. She was class of 59. Mr Sebelle was a kind man...beyond words. He lived a long productive life but nevertheless it saddens me that he is gone.

I still tell Mr Sebelle stories. He would not talk about his WWII experiences in any detail except how his friends saved him from drowning on d-day. He had the respect and admiration of students because of the way he treated them - with respect. I still have my Second Year Latin textbook from his class.
