Educator Walter Heinhold remembered at Nashua High School South
Rourke said Heinhold's ability to share stories through theater, film and everyday conversations in the hallways was legendary.
Art teacher Robin Peringer said Heinhold used his quick and sarcastic sense of humor to hide the fact that he was really nothing but nice.
Seusing used to hang some of the life studies and nude figure drawings from art classes in her office to avoid any controversy at the school's public art gallery. Kaleigh Heinhold was considering lying naked on Seusing's desk to get her attention.
Almost everyone called him Heinhold, but to Seusing, Heinhold was always Walter.
"And he called me Jen-n-n," said Seusing giving the last letter in her name a couple of extra beats. "Did you know Jen could have three syllables?"
She recalled watching a rehearsal for drama club's production of "Twelve Angry Men," and seeing one of the student actors pull out a large knife and slam it into the table.
"He told me, 'It's just theater, Jen-n-n,'" said Seusing, adding that the show went on in Heinhold style.
Kaleigh Heinhold spoke about her dad, and to him directly.
As people recalled their relationships and moments with Heinhold, photos of the teacher were flashing on a large screen on the stage. Musician, author and educator Don White performed the songs, "Great Big Heart" and "Sense of Humor" as part of the tribute.
Rosie Flanagan said that without Heinhold and drama club, she would be a very shy person.
"I'm still weird," she laughed "But now, I'm with a bunch of kids who like Shakespeare."
