Mr. Kokora was a math teacher, tennis coach, and athletic trainer in Boulder and Longmont for over 25 years. He will be remembered by many students for his interesting collection of neckties and his constant instructions to "write the freakin' formula". And, of course, those eyebrows.
Mr. Kokora's many passions in life included traveling, golf, church and dinner with friends, fishing, watching baseball, martinis, books, science fiction, history, religion, the numbers zero and one, and Dunkin' Donuts.
