GERVAIS, MN — A well-known custodian in a Gervais elementary school
has died unexpectedly, according to the Woodburn Independent.
According to school authorities, Lynn Kropf, 48, who worked at Eldriedge Elementary School
, didn''t wake from sleep Monday morning and the cause of his death remains unclear.
"It stunned us to hear of this," Gervais Superintendent Rick Hensel said.
"He''s a very well-known person to begin with and we''ve been working even more closely because he''s been right here around the office [so much]," Hensel stated.
"He meant so much to all the people who ever come into contact with him here at the district. He hasn''t been here all that long but he has that long-time feel to him. He’s just a very familiar person," Hensel added.
