OLD GUARD: Near 80, 'Gag' has big plans for local HOKA NJ NY club“I can’t even put into words what he has done for winter track in the whole Northeast,” said Dan Doherty, Pearl River cross-country coach, who is also a track official.Doherty ran in high school at the old Armory track facility, which subsequently was closed as it and the neighborhood around it deteriorated.Before the old Armory track’s closing in 1984, the building also housed the homeless, with men sleeping in part right in the track space.“It’s been a remarkable transformation,” said Westchester Track Club founder and coach Mike Barnow, a friend of Sander for 40-plus years.Buy PhotoWestchester Track Club's coach Mike Barnow, of Peekskill, times club runners at Rockefeller State Park in Sleepy Hollow, Oct. 30, 2004. (Photo: Rohanna Mertens for The Journal News)“He touched so many people,” Barnow said. “This running community really owes him a lot.”Sander, who became the Armory’s CEO, took the building over in 1993 from the city with it its interior virtually destroyed. Through the non-profit Armory Foundation he earlier created, he made a facility that draws about 150,000 athletes a year, the span including grade-school runners to professionals to masters-level competitors. Most Section 1 high school winter track meets are held there.“No one could ever have dreamed what he did,” Doherty said. “What an influence. What a man.”Rye resident Frank Gagliano, former Rutgers and Georgetown coach, who began the professional New Jersey New York Track Club (now Hoka NJ NY Track Club) club in 2010, concurred.“He did a lot for me and my team and a lot for the sport — for high school, college and professionals.

South Mississippi for 28 years. He also was the public information officer for MHP’s Biloxi-based Troop K, which patrols Harrison, Hancock, Jackson, George, Stone and Pearl River counties.Joe Gazzo was not only important to all of us in federal law enforcement, he was monumental in bridging agency gaps all along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and beyond. The Gulfport DEA family feels honored to hold the hand of his son, Jason, while we stand in his father’s shadow. We will miss him terribly.Terry Davis, agent in charge of DEA operations based in GulfportVisitation will be Friday at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church. Visitation starts at 10. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at noon.A ‘true blue’ state trooperGazzo was part of a state trooper family in his personal life as well.His son, Jason, followed in his footsteps. Jason Gazzo became a state trooper and served in the same Highway Patrol public affairs job as his father before he was assigned to the Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force based in Gulfport.Gazzo’s brother, Vernon, also retired as a state trooper.Joe Gazzo balanced patrol work with giving the media details of crashes and public-safety warnings. During his tenure, he faxed state troopers’ “field cards” to the media to provide details of crashes for news reports.Most people who worked in law enforcement anywhere in South Mississippi before he retired knew him or knew of him. And so did many who read news reports that identified him as the source of information or heard him speak on traffic safety.
