The Plainview-Old Bethpage Board of Education recently reflected on the passing of former Superintendent of Schools Louis Ferrara during a school board meeting last week on Monday. Ferrara, veteran of the US Army who served as Superintendent in the 1980s, died two weeks ago on June 12.
Board of Education Vice President Ginger Lieberman remembered Ferrara as “a wonderful person,” and the school district posted a memorial letter on his tenure as superintendent by PCT President Morty Rosenfeld, stating: “Since I received the news, I’ve had a flood of memories, most of them of adversarial encounters with him, me the new union president, Lou the up-from-the-ranks superintendent who seemingly knew every detail of the operation of the district.”
Ferrara was a beloved husband of RoseMary, loving father of Anne Ferrara Kurzman, Louis Ferrara and Rosemary & Lee Mc Allister, dear brother of Harry, and cherished grandfather of Colleen, Katelyn, Matthew, Christie and Jay. He was buried at Holy Rood Cemetery.
