Mr. Nonis was my grade 5 teacher in 1995. He was the reason I hold a hunting license and inspired me to be a ethical and conscientious hunter. I also received my first “A” in science that year. He is one teacher that made a lasting impact on my life and although I have only just seen this… I’m sure he would be happy knowing at 38 years old I still hold fond memories and still think of him (and thank him for not giving me detention for punching a classmate in the nose at lunchtime! Mr. Nonis just asked me if he deserved it… wouldn’t fly today… but, that will stay with me forever!). My condolences to the family, he was a great man and an excellent teacher.
