Mr. LaFortune was my earth science teacher in 9th grade. That was around the time when I was really into cycling and he and I always used to discuss the best places to ride around Moscow after class was over. He was a super excellent teacher, let us play a Jeopardy like game to review for the tests, and made my last class of the day something to really look forward to.
Unfortunately, he died early this morning, succumbing to brain cancer after a long fight.
The world will miss you, Mr. La.
