Funeral services for a Rockford educator were held Tuesday.

Lenn Guenzler was principal at Jefferson High School for three years. He also worked at several other schools in the Rockford area.

Guenzler died last week after battling prostate cancer for seven years. He was 58. To honor Guenzler, students at Jefferson 58 candles, including three red ones, at a pre-game ceremony at Friday’s football game against East.

The red candles symbolized the number of years Guenzler served as principal.
