Robert Brill Obituary, Death – It is with deep regret that I must notify you that Mr. Robert Brill, a former teacher at East High School, passed away unexpectedly on December 13th. The news of his passing has taken everyone by surprise. I bring you this news with a heavy heart since I know it will upset you. In addition to being a teacher at East High School for a good number of years, Bob Brill oversaw the school’s Social Studies curriculum and was the department head for Geography and Geology. In addition, he was a teacher of geography. During the time that he spent working at the Eagle’s Nest in the F corridor, he made important contributions to the long and illustrious history of the school. These contributions were made during the course of his employment there. Bob Brill started his career in education at Espanola High School in the early 1970s. His first position there was as a teacher.
Around the turn of the century, he had his retirement party there, and just a short while later, his wife Valerie, who had also worked at the school, moved in with him there. Valerie had been a teacher there. Both Bob and Valerie Brill settled there after their retirement. Many of the students who ever set foot inside Bob’s classroom will never forget how strict, fair, and fun-loving he was as a teacher. They will also never forget how much they enjoyed being in his class. They will also never forget how much they appreciated having him as a teacher and how much fun they had in his class. People will remember him most for the wide knowledge that he possessed on the subject at hand, which he strengthened with tales from his own trips and experiences. This is the thing that people will remember about him the most.
Bob, in his capacity as the person in charge of the program, was gracious enough to share all of the knowledge that he had obtained over the course of his career with instructors who were just starting out in their own professions. It was essential to him that he provide them with as many opportunities for success as he was capable of in any given situation. After he retired, Bob was able to continue providing the same high level of service to the community as he had in the past by taking part in a wide variety of volunteer activities. In addition to taking pleasure in the peaceful life at camp with the families of his own children, Andrew and Julia, he and Valerie were big fans of taking part in a variety of exciting vacation activities together. After Bob’s departure, the only members of his family who are still with us are his wife Valerie, his son Andrew, his daughter Julia, and his four grandkids. His daughter Julia is married to Andrew, and Andrew is married to Julia.
