Honoree: John “Johnny” Grube (1957-2018) was a part of the community at the Crossroads Unlimited residence for developmentally challenged adults. He was known as the Mayor of West Brighton and worked in the Lifestyles for the Disabled program on Staten Island. He was active for many years in the Snug Harbor Little league and the Special Olympics program, and an avid fan of Msgr. Farrell High School sports teams. He soon attended all sports events by Msgr. Farrell and had his own seat on the bench. The basketball team viewed him as their good luck charm. He began working at the school, manning the front desk and greeting students as they walked in.
