"Krauskopf, 62, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2010. He died Sunday.

Born and raised in Morinville, Krauskopf was first elected to town council in 1998. He was appointed mayor in 2012 after then-mayor Lloyd Bertschi stepped down.

“With Paul Krauskopf's passing, Morinville has not only lost its mayor, but it has lost a dear friend who was tireless advocate for Morinville, ” said the town's chief administrative officer Debbie Oyarzun in a news release Sunday afternoon. “Council, administration and staff are profoundly shaken by the mayor's death and are deeply moved that his dedication to the community he called home for 63 years and the obligation he took on as mayor of that community endured until the end. Paul never stopped working for Morinville or its residents.”"
