Trustee Ochsenhirt had served on the District governing board for one year, having been elected in November 2014. Previously, he had worked on the District’s Citizens Bond Oversight Committee. He made significant contributions to our District, and was a kind, passionate, wonderful man. His passing is truly a loss for our District and community.

He served as chairman of the city’s Planning Commission and Parks and Recreation Commission, among other duties. He was also active in a variety of non-profit groups as well, including the Chamber of Commerce, the Lions Club and All Souls Catholic Church.
