Hilton Perez

To the Dobias Family from Hilton Perez, NYMA '67: I was so sadden to learn of the passing of the "Maj"and have so many fond memories of him during my three years at NYMA. When I came to NYMA as a sophomore it was the "Maj" who introduced me to football and I had the good fortune of playing both football and baseball for him. After NYMA I got an athletic scholarship and played football for 4 years at C.W.Post college in Long Island, NY and later on I played 1 year of Semi-Pro football. I then became a HS and College football official and after 42 seasons I just recently retired. I share this story because if it was not for the "Maj" in seeing some potential in me back in 1964 I probably would never have played football. The "Maj" was a tough but fair man and he always had the best interests of us Cadets at heart. We lost a good man on earth but heaven has gained a guardian who will continue to watch over us. God bless you "Maj" and rest in peace.
