In Memory

Robert Tavernaro

A sad note, Coach Tavarnero passed away Nov 16th with alzheimers at 76, bless his heart. He retired twice from the Marines! And besides that he was a damn good football coach.

He is survived by his wife, Mary, his daughter, Lynn Salisbury and (husband Randy), his son Bobby Tavernaro (wife Jennifer), and four granddaughters: Molly and Maggie Salisbury and Olivia and Sully Tavernaro. He is also survived by two brothers, Ron Tavernaro (wife Barbara) and Richard Tavernaro, along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Coach Tavernaro was one of a kind...he was my driver education teacher at Southwest...and then in 1972 he was my supervising teacher when I did my student teaching at Grandview High School in driver education. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

He was a tough and good man. He was the reason I went to cmsu to play football, he also played there. Prayers for his family.
