Tribute to a Lifelong Educator - Donald Kroll

Long Beach lost a treasured friend recently with the passage of Donald Kroll on April 19, 2006.  Donald dedicated immeasurable time and energy to the education of our children, as a teacher aide, teacher, librarian, and library-media specialist with the Long Beach Unified School District.  His efforts to improve our community led to his involvement in numerous organizations, committees and programs, including what must have been his favorite: participating in the YMCA Indian Princesses with his daughter.  Donald is survived by his wife of 37 years, Sandra; daughter, Katie Kroll; sister, Carol Kerr; and nieces, nephews, an aunt, uncles and cousins.  Councilmember Lowenthal joins Donald’s friends, family and community in honoring his lifetime of service.
