Karl Steinkamp Obituary, Death –It is with mixed emotions that we convey some heartfelt news. Last night, Karl Steinkamp, the Head of School at New Life Academy, passed away. Karl valiantly battled Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer for a little over a year, and while our hearts are touched with joy knowing he is now in Heaven, they also bear the weight of sorrow as we grapple with his absence. Jacki, his wife, shared the following message on Facebook:
“Tonight, at 10:40 PM, surrounded by the loving embrace of his children and myself, amid a chorus of ‘I love yous,’ we released Karl into the arms of our Heavenly Father. He fought with unwavering determination.”
Our school community is profoundly saddened by the loss of a visionary leader and a committed educator. Karl’s presence could light up a room with his sense of humor and sharp wit. During this challenging period of bereavement, we kindly request that you keep the Steinkamp family in your thoughts and prayers.
Karl Steinkamp’s legacy at New Life Academy is immeasurable, and his impact will continue to shape the lives of those he touched. While he may no longer be with us physically, the enduring memory of his leadership, dedication, and warmth will forever be etched in our hearts.
