RIP Mr. Knepper - Heaven just got more jolly ranchers and M&M's. The lessons he taught, an age that is at times unteachable, are what a catholic education is really about. Thank you to his family for sharing such a wonderful man all these years.

RIP Mr. Knepper - How sad that after teaching for 41 years he never got to retire. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. May they find comfort in knowing that he was loved by all he taught.

Thoughts and prayers.

My daughter is in 7th grade and just thought the world of Mr. Knepper. As a matter of fact she didn't want to take the Math class at Mother McAuley next year just so she could have one more year with Mr. Knepper. St. Christina School was lucky to have him as a teacher/friend. I hope his family knows how many lives he has touched and how many children loved 7th and 8th grade because of him.

I have been away from St. Christina for many years now, but I will always hold Mr. Knepper close to my heart. I will never forget how much fun he made school, and he had such a knack for making us forget we were actually learning. Rest in peace, Mr. Knepper. Thank you for the memories.

I go to St. Christina and I am only in 4th grade, but Mr. Knepper was the only teacher I actually wanted for 7th grade. My teacher, Mrs. Immordino almost cried when she was talking to my class. Mr. Knepper brought my neighbor up from a D in math to a B-. He was absolutely a great person. My friend Clare was always picked on a few years ago and every time this happened she told Mr. Knepper and he would give Clare some M&Ms. Today in church we blessed the Knepper family with the help of Fr. Laurence Sullivan. Mr. Knepper deserves to have everlasting life in Heaven.Today was the memorial mass for him.He made math so happy& cheery for all the 7th graders said. I will miss Mr. Knepper. He made all the right choices and he was a follower of Jesus. May God bless him & his family.
My thoughts & prayers to the Knepper family
I never had really known Mr. Knepper very well, but from what Mrs. Immordino said I wish I did.
He taught my best friend's father and he has been away from SC for a long time. ( I am crying as I'm typing this.) His wife said he loved his job and loved all of his class. GOD BLESS ANYONE THAT KNEW MR. WILLIAM KNEPPER!
