My brother, Charles Van de Merlen, who also graduated from Hicksville High, passed away last year on February 15th after a prolonged battle with throat cancer, followed by a stroke and then lung cancer. He leaves behind his wife, Therese, and three children, Scott, age 11, Ciara, age 9, and Charlie, 4. I would very much like to hear from any of his high school friends if they have memories of my brother that they would like to share as his children can only remember him being ill. He graduated in (I think) either 1965 or 66.
