Gustav Dreyhaupt

Gustav Dreyhaupt, 67, of Griggstown, died November 25 after a long struggle with cancer.

A master electrician, he was a 35-year employee of Princeton University. He was also a lifetime member of the Griggstown Volunteer Fire Company, and enjoyed the community and friendship of the two groups throughout his life.

At 50 he earned his private pilot's license and flying became the focus of his interest. His greatest joy was his V-Tail Bonanza and the Princeton Airport Flying Tigers, of which he was a charter member.

He was a gourmet cook who enjoyed everything about shopping for and cooking food. He also loved nature and animals, and was happiest when he was at home surrounded by his cats, his crossword puzzles, the weather channel, and the constant chatter of his police scanner.

He is survived by his wife, Ethel Beckett; a daughter, Teri Gargani Osman; three sisters, Carol Pettinelli, Lynn Dziuma, and Debbie Diaz; and a long-time friend, Loretta Dean.

The funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, December 9, at Princeton University Chapel. It will be followed by a reception at Prospect House.

Burial will be in Griggstown Cemetery.

Carmen Prezioso

Carmen Prezioso, 76, of Princeton and Pompano Beach, Fla., died suddenly November 28. He was a teacher of French, Italian and Spanish at Princeton High School, where he served as chairman of the Humanities Department for 38 years.

Born in Belleville, he graduated from Montclair State Teacher's College and received his master's degree in French Literature from Laval University, Quebec. He also studied at the Sorbonne in Paris.

In 1988, he became a recipient of the L'Ordre des les Palmes, given by the French government in honor of those who have promoted the French language and culture throughout the world.

He was the director of the College of Carfinio, a program that took students and adults to five regions of Italy to experience Italian culture and treasures.

From 1950 to 1976, he spent his summers teaching French and French folklore at Laval University, and French and Spanish at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School.

In discussing how he was able to arrange private audiences with the Pope at his summer home in Italy, he explained that "if you get involved in life, not just in one area, but get to know many things, something interesting is bound to happen."

Predeceased by his parents, Rafaella and Salvatore Prezioso, and his sister Margaret Raimondi, he is survived by two brothers, Salvatore and George; and two sisters, Eleanor Nigro and Assunta Pipitone.

The funeral service was December 4 at St. Paul's Church; interment was at Princeton Cemetery.
