Dear Daloia Family Members,

I’m very saddened to learn of Tom’s passing; I was a senior at the high school when Tom started his teaching career. Tom did a number of repair jobs at my Mom’s house – always good quality and I really enjoyed working with him. He’ll be missed. My prayers are with you. Jon Yonko

Dear Daloia Family,

Mr. Daloia was one of the people that shaped my life. His introduction to probability using rudimentary “magic tricks” inspired me to become a mathematics teacher. When I told him this, he told me not to blame him with a smile. He was a member of a caring and dedicated teaching staff.

He made an impact as a coach as well. My sophomore year during practice, I was run over by Joe Wizba, a Notre Dame recruit. The hit triggered the hoots and hollers of the entire team. As I struggled to my feet, Mr. Daloia stepped between the team and me and yelled “You bunch of cowards! Not one of you would have put your head into Joe Wizba!” He turned to me and said “Good job.” He guided me out of the drill where I was treated with respect instead of ridicule.

Later that season, we upset a ranked team with only seconds left. Our kicker was running around frantically looking for the kicking tee. He yelled “Give me a tee! Give me a tee!” Mr. Daloia, without missing a beat, smiled and yelled “T!” as in the TIGER cheer. He turned to me, the smallest, slowest player on the team and said “You got to be quick to stay around here, Bonar.”

He treated everyone with respect regardless of the situation. He made us all feel like we were a part of the team. I am glad that I had the chance to share my feelings with him.

Please accept my deepest sympathy.

Dear Daloia Family,

We share your pain as we, too, have lost our family patriarch, Richard Erickson this week. In the midst of our turmoil, we did not realize that Mr. Daloia had passed away as well. We learned the sad news through Facebook from Roy Clouston who has become our beacon of knowledge and encouragement in the past few days. I am overwhelmed when I think of all the wonderful teachers, mentors, and coaches who enriched students’ lives at Shadyside High School: Mr. Daloia, Mr. and Mrs. Clouston, Tom Berger, Whitey Magyar, Ray Ponzo, Harold Romick, George Kroll, Jim Bittengle, Larry Falbo, and many others. They gave so much of themselves to the students and community. I am honored to have been a Shadyside Tiger.

Our condolences to your family.

Dear Daloia Family, I was greatly saddened to hear about Mr. Daloia. He was such a wonderful teacher and coach, who made a difference in so many people’s lives.I was fortunate to have him in football and basketbaall as well as in class. He was a positve influence in my life and I consider myself very lucky to have known him.I remember him as a tough, intelligent coach who knew how to motivate us.He helped me in sports and cared about all of his students and atheletes. I also have fond memories of visiting the Daloia family. Joe Wizba and I would usually visit over Christmas.We always had a great time playing games with Marc and Crissy, who were little then.We looked forward to those visits. I will miss Mr. Daloia, My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I would like to extend my sincere sympathy to the Daloia Family at this time. Tom was a great teacher, and friend and will be sadly missed. Thirty years ago he figured out how to teach geometry and trigonometry to a skinny kid with wire rim glasses who liked to stare out the window daydreaming. I’m proud to say that kid went on to design, renovate, and build houses, another one of Tom’s passions. Over these past 30 years he always had time to stop and talk, give advice, or share a funny story, for his knowledge, and friendship I am grateful. Thanks Tom, I’m sure you’re building for the big guy upstairs.

You all are in my thoughts and prayers…. Rob Brown
