Area educator, coach Rob Quel dies at 51

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - Lynchburg lost a great man, lifetime teacher and coach this past weekend with the passing of Rob Quel.

Quel began his career as a teacher and coach at E.C. Glass and over the years worked at Sandusky Middle, Linkhorne Elementary, Bedford Hills Elementary and the Department of Information Technology.

Many of us knew Rob as a swim coach, he was helping with a Parks & Rec clinic at Lynchburg's Miller Park just last month.

He helped mentor hundreds of young swimmers and had a great sense of humor.

We lost him way too soon, Rob Quel was 51 years old.
