    So sorry, just heard when I was in Edinboro for Christmas,
    My 4th grade teacher at the MILLER school,
    A wonderful positive influence on me.

    Mr. Fredorko was my 3rd and 4th grade teacher. He made everything we did fun and made school and learning something I wanted to do. My sincere sympathies for your loss.

    I am very sorry to hear of Mr. Fedorko’s passing. I have thought of him over the years and the impact he had on my childhood. He was my third grade teacher at Compton Hall and than again in fourth grade at Miller Research. Mr Fedorko was a very gentle man but could light you up if needed. A man that respected and appriciated. My thoughts and prayers to his entire family. RIP my friend and thank you for everything.
