I am so saddened to hear of this tragedy. We were good friends and bad a great time in English class. My sympathy to all who knew him.

Posted by Gordon Taylor 65 7/27/04 I knew John well
Funny, John and I were classmates, but never friends until we met in Louisiana in the USAF. We spent almost every minute of "OFF" time together riding our motocycles around the area, playing cards and having fun. John was a dedicated soldier and loved his country. We shipped out to different places and I never heard from him again, yet some how knowing he is gone, I miss him.

Barbieri, Eddie  1970s

Posted by Arnold Serafin 4/7/05  Eddie
Heard from a former classmate that Eddie Barbieri (class of 1965) died in the early 70's in a car accident. This maybe third or fourth hand info but cannot be validated.

As reported by a friend :  Ed went NJH & attended NFA 10th grade, and part of 11th, then his family moved to Cornwall, he graduated from high school there, that's why he's not in our yearbook. He spent 4 yr's in the USAF, I heard that he was killed in a car accident in the early to mid 70's.

When Tom Barry Retired - Newburgh City Police ...

He takes his coffee with milk, no sugar. And he doesn't drink beer anymore, on account of his health. Only scotch. And he smokes Camel cigarettes. But he's quitting those, because this is where life starts, here in the back room at the city police station, as he says goodbye. "All these years that I've been here have been a lot of fun," says Tom Barry, in the middle of a bunch of cops and cakes, pasta salad, sub sandwiches and balloons. The 58-year-old with white hair surrounding a bald spot is struggling with words and all the cops are watching and not talking at all. "I'm gonna get teary-eyed now," he says, sounding like he's got cement in his throat. He stops, then goes. "This job is a pain-in-the-ass job. We all know that. But it's the people. It's you people." His sentences are clunky and soft. When he finishes saying what he's saying, some people are crying. "Now," he tells them, smiling, "I'm going back to work." THIRTY-SIX YEARS. "That's a long time in this business," says Bill Bloom, the chief of the Newburgh Police Department. But until you hear the stories, you have no idea. Barry was a cop in the old-school sense: shoe leather, long hair, hard nose. He was hired here in 1968 and his yearly salary was $6,250. "He knew how to do it the old-fashioned way," says Chris Boylan, one of Barry's former partners. "He knew how to develop information by being part of the community. He was the old kind of cop who did real detective work." Like the time the city's anti-crime unit got a tip from the FBI that a violent Cuban gang from Nev,' York City, called Santeria, was planning to heist weapons from Bernabo's gun shop on Broadway. The gang's MO was to pass the gun store a few times, then bust in, shoot anything that moved, steal the guns and split. The intelligence was so good that Newburgh cops knew the date and time of the planned heist. So they posed as the owners of the store, with pistols concealed and shotguns behind the counter. And here came the van. It passed once, then twice. Then, nothing. Something spooked them. They were lucky. Then there was Nov. 18, 1973. Barry had just arrived at the station to start the day's work when he heard the calls for backup. The cops ravaged the gun locker and headed to Benkard Avenue, where William Robinson, a 29-year-old officer, had been killed by a shot in the head from a .30-06 shotgun. Detectives were pinned. Barry had the sniper rifle. They shot tear gas into the window where the shooter was holed up. He was arrested. (The guy pled insanity and, two trials later, he was sentenced to a psychiatric center. He was released in 1980.) "This is a crime-ridden city," Barry says. "There's gunfire in this city every day. This place is hell. But that's what makes a cop a cop." He fails to mention that it's the little stuff, too. In the old days, Barry talked down dozens of domestic disputes. Took plenty of drugs away from the bad guys. He delivered a baby on Grand Street. And, on a cold day in 1972, he saved the life of a 3-year-old boy who was pulled from a burning building on West Parrnenter. He's been a court officer for the past 14 years, hauling prisoners between here and Goshen (ask about the time one of them pooped his pants) and leading them into the courtroom with: "Step up. Step over. Step back." "Tom Barry is triple-stars," says City Court Judge Jeanne Patsalos. "He has the ultimate respect for his job and people love him as a result. Even the prisoners." BARRY'S FATHER never quit working. Seriously. At the age of 74, the man who worked as a court attendant died of a heart attack in the courthouse, at work. That's why Tom Barry is calling it quits. "He's gonna miss the young guys," says his wife, Elizabeth. "We'll miss him," says Sgt. Charles Broe. His laugh. Language. Lessons. Barry would ask to see a rookie cop's night stick. The cop would comply. Then Barry would throw the night stick down the hall. "Don't ever give your night stick to anybody," Barry would say. Now he has a boat. He plans to use it more. He wants to spend time with his grand kids and time on the nice country porch he built on the front of his house. He wants to live out of uniform. "He's gonna have to go to vacuum cleaner school," says his wife, out of earshot. "He doesn't know how to do nothing else." As the cake disappears, Barry shakes as many hands as he can, then leaves the building to a uniform salute. He climbs into his car and heads for home. Police cars, with lights flashing, escort him the whole way.

     Scott, Ralph R. (Mickey)

Ralph R. Scott (Mickey)  On Sunday at about noon, Mickey Scott called his mom, Irmy, in Newburgh to tell her he was going outside to rake leaves. It was the last time Mickey Scott would talk to anyone in his tight-knit family. Scott, believed to be the first mid-Hudson high school baseball player ever drafted, died outside his home on Sunday in Binghamton. He was 64. The Yankees took Scott, a left-handed pitcher, out of Newburgh Free Academy in the 17th round of the 1965 draft. Scott's sister, June Valentino, who lives in Newburgh, said she believes her brother died of a heart attack or stroke. She said he went to the gym regularly. "It's a shock. I guess two women found him hunched over in a chair in the afternoon and called 911," Valentino said. "How do you deal with it? Mickey was a super, super guy. Everyone liked him. He was fun-loving. Mickey was a hell raiser, but everyone had good things to say about him."
Valentino said services for Scott will be held later this week in Binghamton. Scott pitched out of the bullpen for three major-league teams – Baltimore, Montreal and the California Angels – from 1972-77. He appeared in 133 career games, retiring with an 8-7 record and a 3.72 ERA. Scott went on to work for the Yankees in different capacities, including a batting practice pitcher, Valentino said. In Binghamton, Scott formerly owned his own bar, Mickey's Mound. It was frequented by former Yankees manager Billy Martin. "I remember the first time Mickey pitched at Yankee Stadium," Valentino said. "I had to stay home and baby sit our brother, but it was still a thrill to see him. Growing up, we thought it was a pain, going to all of Mickey's games. But we are all so proud of him."

   

Mickey Scott (full name: Ralph Robert Scott ) played pitcher from 1972 until 1977 for the Baltimore Orioles, Montreal Expos and California Angels. He played for the Orioles from 1972 - 1973, Expos in 1973 and Angels from 1975 - 1977. Over 5 seasons, he played games, won 8 games, struck out 70 batters, and had a 3.72 ERA. Born on July 25, 1947 in Weimar, Germany, Scott stands 6' 1" and weighs 155 lb. He attended Free Academy (Newburgh, NY) high school and was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 17th round of the 1965 amateur draft. His debut was on May 6, 1972 and he played his final game on June 6, 1977.
