Encinal coach dies of apparent heart attack
The Chronicle is reporting that Ken Babers, a girls’ basketball coach at Encinal High School, died Sunday of an apparent heart attack.
“He was just a man of absolute integrity,” Micki Singer, the school’s head varsity girls’ basketball coach, told the paper’s Will McCulloch.
Babers, 34, who worked as a property manager, served as Singer’s assistant and as the head coach for the school’s junior varsity team, McCulloch reports. He leaves behind a wife and four children, including a daughter who is a junior forward on the varsity team, he reports.
A fund has been set up for Babers’ family, and donations can be sent to The Fund for the Family of Ken Babers, c/o Bank of Alameda, 2130 Otis Drive, Alameda, CA 94501-5278.
