Lake City Mourns the Loss of their Mayor

Posted: Updated:

An important member of the Lake City community has died.

A City Council member has confirmed that Lake City Mayor Lester Rakov died yesterday of an undisclosed illness.

9&10 News sat down with his wife, Marcia today to talk about the respected Vietnam Veteran.

She says he was planning on running for Mayor again in November when his first term was up, and while he could be an intimidating guy most of the time, she says he was a very kind man.

There are no funeral arrangements at this time.
