February 4, 2015

The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) was saddened yesterday by news of Ron Keller’s passing. Mr. Keller served as executive director of CSRAB from 1993 until 2005 and had worked on the Ohio Statehouse restoration project since 1990. Mr. Keller, working with longtime CSRAB Chairman Senator Richard Finan, managed the $121 million Ohio Capitol restoration that was completed in 1996.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kathy, the children and the entire Keller family during this difficult time. Working with Ron during the restoration, I learned firsthand of his passion for Ohio history and his love for this magnificent building. Ron believed, as I do that the Ohio Statehouse is here for all Ohioans to visit and enjoy, this truly is the ‘People’s House,’” said William Carleton CSRAB executive director.

Calling hours will be Wednesday, Feb. 4 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Tidd Funeral Home, 5265 Norwich St., in Hilliard, Ohio. The funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 5 at the funeral home.
