Bob "Robert" Car Whippo, 70, of Tucson and formally of Kane, went to be with the Lord on May 16, 2012.
Born Aug. 27, 1941 in Kane, he was the son of the late Carl Whippo and Louise Deemer. He was a 1959 graduate of Kane Area High School. He served in the USAF for four years. He had varied jobs throughout his life and finally retired several years ago.
Tom Cecchetti may be ending a 36-year career as a popular physical education teacher in Kane, but he isnâ€™t quite ready to give up coaching track.
â€śI plan on being the boysâ€™ track coach again next spring,â€ť Cecchetti said as he winds up his career as a high school teacher and school district athletic director.
â€śI still have that passion to watch our kids excel,â€ť he said. â€śI love to watch our kids progress. Iâ€™m definitely hooked.â€ť
Cecchetti has built a reputation as one the most successful high school track coaches in Pennsylvania.
