Ed SchalkMy thoughts and prayers go out to the Lett’s family during this difficult time. Mr Letts was my construction tech based math teacher at Beal in 1980 and 81. He was an amazing teacher who always encouraged you to do in life what makes you happy. Took his advice and eventually ended up being a shop teacher. Rest In Peace sir and safe journey.

David LucyUndoubtedly, the best teacher I ever had, at Sir Adam Beck for grade 11 and 13 math. My grade 13 year, 1967 was the last year of departmental examinations throughout the province of Ontario. He prepared our class, as well as anybody could and I much appreciated that, as it allowed me to continue on to University and earn a degree in Business and Economics. He was tough and often sent me to the vice principal’s office, as I never had a note for missing classes. My parents lived 850 miles away and Mr. Lets and I finally resolved the problem by him allowing me to write my own sick notes. He soon garnered a great respect for me and me for him and I know that all the students he taught, were very lucky! I am glad he had a long life and I know he will be missed by all his friends and family. Please accept my most sincere and deep condolences.
