Funeral mass scheduled for John Raukar

The family and friends of John Raukar will gather on Monday to celebrate the life of a man who gave so much to so many while never seeking the spotlight or asking anything in return.

Raukar, who was originally from Minnesota and played football for the Green Bay Packers, died on May 26 after being diagnosed with cancer just three weeks earlier.

He was a former adjunct professor at Idaho State University, a Pocatello/Chubbuck School District 25 administrator, a coach/teacher at Century High School and a tireless advocate for those battling drug addictions and alcoholism.
