Former FDL School Board President Passes Away

Former Fond du Lac School Board President Dick Knar passed away last week at the age of 81. For many years Knar was a math teacher at the UW-Fond du Lac and also coached basketball, baseball, and football. He also served at one time as president of Little League baseball. Fond du Lac Schools Superintendent Jim Sebert says students learned from Knar in either of his roles as “Coach” or “Professor.” A funeral service will be held for Knar this morning at a church in St. Francis. He will be buried tomorrow at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Eau Claire.
