    My regret is that I never got to meet the man who despite every medical issue he went through or was going through, was such an awesome father and husband who loved my sister and their family unconditionally. Rest in peace my brother.

    I can not fathom coming to see you in your final state of rest. I want to remember you as we laughed and talked and talked about our families and the struggle with jokes on the side. I love you, tocayo! As you would always say to me. I say to you. I LOVE YOU, TOCAYO!!! Until we meet again. God Bless as we always said our end of conversations. And a hearty BENDICIÓN because you was always and will always be family. SERGIO - 1981 DWC.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Quijano family today on such a difficult day. In celebration of his life, I am and so many of my fellow DeWitt Clinton High School grads are for ever grateful for having known Sergio who brought so much joy, love and friendship to our lives. Especially his sense of humor. I never remembered a day where I was not laughing when hanging with Sergio. He loved life, and adored Millie and his children. He was joyous and positive from the moment that he entered Clinton. If he made friends with you, he was your friend for life, no matter what. I am especially sad that I cannot attend his celebration of life on earth. My love and prayers to Millie, Sergio's children and his mother and sister and to the entire Quijano extended family. I am forever grateful for the blessing to have had you as a friend dear brother.

    Sergio..a friend to many..a mentor to more..you were a gentle, kind soul that is irreplaceable. A DWC brother. I got to see you in your beginnings. Establishing your brand if leadership, dignity and respect in the Bronx and citywide. Very well liked in leadership circles and you played a big role in the way NYC sports in Public Schools were viewed. You were one of the unnamed heroes, and only those that were close to the action really knew. You never boasted about your accomplishments. I learned so much from you, and thank you for the lessons taught. I'll never forget you my friend. That wide eyed freshman thanks you. You changed my life..
