Luxemburg-Casco remembers Okoniewski

The Luxemburg-Casco School District is mourning the loss of a former principal and coach with ties to the Green and Gold. Steve Okoniewski passed away earlier this week at the age of 74 at his home in the Green Bay area. The Washington native first came to the region as a member of the 1974 and 1975 Green Bay Packers teams. He would later return to northeast Wisconsin first as a Master’s student at UW-Oshkosh before starting his tenure as a principal and assistant football coach in 1989. Despite retiring in 2014, his legacy lived on right up to his passing. Head wrestling coach Chas Treml says “Mr. O” had a tremendous impact on his life as a student and coach, adding that a picture of two of them hugging after the Spartans captured a Team State Wrestling championship says everything.


A Memorial Celebration of Life for Okoniewski will take place in April.
