Not sure what to say?

I played baseball for Coach "Strohbob" in the early 80's at CV. He will always have a special place in my heart and soul.

A bit older than I, John was a hero image for me as a young aspiring baseball player. I recall packed houses at Tiger Field when he and Sonny Dixon would match up. Through all of his athletic accomplishments he never forgot where his roots were. A shining example of what we all should strive to be. My best thoughts are with all of the Strohmayer clan. The torch has been passed, carry it proudly.

My condolences to Connie, his sons, and the family. I respected John as a a fellow teacher and then as an administrative colleague. We didn't always agree on issues, but I respected his viewpoint and often sought his advice/point of view because I knew he kept his focus on what was best for the student(s) involved. Whether he was coaching, teaching, mentoring, or leading other educators, John gave his all. We lost touch after we both retired, but I was always proud to read and hear about...

So sorry to hear about John's passing. As man and son of a teacher and educator at Central valley high School, the story of mr. Strohmayer a small town man reaching his goal to play in the major leagues was a motivation to me. And then to have him as a teacher and a coach when I went to high school was even better. My condolences from my whole family to the strohmayer family he will be sorely missed!

My daughter had John for Algebra when she was in the 8th grade before she attended CVHS. He became one, if not the most memorable teacher she had at CV HS. I asked, and he accepted, to let me wire him with a microphone while filming some of his games. He was passionate and expressive and the recordings were proof. We gave him the tapes, and also put together during the 1989 season an album of pictures of the team and the games. It became a truth that the support and involvement of the...

My heart felt condolences to the strohmayer family. Mr. John strohmayer was an awesome teacher coach, friend and mentor! I am a 1985 graduate of CVHS as my brother (Harold) 1982. As Falcons, we were very blessed to have him at our school.

God Bless & Prayers to you all.

Our condolences to the Strohmayer family. I have so many fond memories of Mr. Strohmayer from Central Valley HS. There wasn't a prouder Falcon than Coach Strohmayer. He was a great basketball coach and a great teacher. Both my wife and I had him as a math teacher, and he always made learning fun with his witty personality and teaching style. You will be truly be missed John. God bless you and your family.

I was saddened to hear of Mr. Strohmayer's passing. I graduated CVHS in 1982, and he was one of my favorite teachers there. My brother graduated 4 years prior to my attendance and he has one of Stroh's baseball cards with his autograph on it. What a good man he was, he will be missed.

So sorry to here about John's passing. He was a great person to work for and was a great influence in our sons life. Sending the family our condolences and prayers! May God watch over his entire family!
