UNION CITY — Guy Emanuele Jr., a highly regarded former New Haven Unified School District superintendent and Fremont school board member, has died, his family announced Monday. Emanuele, who had been battling complications from Parkinson’s disease, died early Sunday. He was 83.

He led the district from 1976 to 1998, a crucial period of growth for Union City and New Haven Unified, officials said. He “found New Haven a district of bricks, and he left it a district of marble,” said former Union City Mayor Mark Green. “He was the most important person in the school district’s history.”
