A 45-year former teacher and supervisor at Bridgewater-Raritan High School died Tuesday at Bridgeway Care Center in Bridgewater.

I'm so sad to hear of Mr. Chiaravalli's passing. He was a warm and kind soul who always treated people with respect. He was supportive of my kids in particular and I am extremely grateful. I will miss him. May his memory be a blessing.

Mr. Chiaravalli was my computer teacher in high school, and a great one at that. His passion for the subject was infectious and his knowledge of computer science was thoroughly advanced. My college professors paled next to him. Thank you Mr. Chiaravalli, you will always be remembered, and I wish I could have told you this in person.
