M-A biology teacher, former coach Rick Longyear dies

Rick Longyear, a longtime biology teacher at Menlo-Atherton High School and a former swimming coach at the school, has died, according to a statement by M-A Principal Simone Rick-Kennel. Longyear died July 17, succumbing to "a short battle with cancer," the principal said.

The school recently inducted Longyear into the M-A Athletic Hall of Fame, and a banquet in his memory is set for Oct. 13, Rick-Kennel said.

Longyear's wife, Sally Longyear, says in a Facebook post that she'll be running the Relay for Life in Burgess Park in Menlo Park on Aug. 11, and asks for contributions in her husband's memory.
