  • In memoriam

    Brookvale PTA would like to take a moment to mourn the passing away of our dear friend, Mr. James O’Neal, or Mister Jim, as he was fondly called by our students and staff.

    An U.S Navy Veteran, Mister Jim worked at Brookvale for many years as a Custodian, because he loved to be close to the children and it was very important to him to give them the safest and cleanest environment possible. In fact many of of the trees that line our playground today were planted by Mister Jim in his days here at Brookvale.

    Many of our parents and students may remember him as the doting grandfather who volunteered every Bronco Gallop and cheered the students on, along with his wife Lequita O’Neal or Grandma as we know her. They stood with us even this past October, though his health was failing and were there to cheer us on at the Bronco Gallop. Mister Jim was a fighter and he taught us all the importance of hard work and loving what you do and excelling in it.

    We will miss him dearly!
