OHIO LAWMAKER DIES
Republican state lawmaker from southwest Ohio dies unexpectedly at 67 during summer recess

Reported by: Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio


An Ohio state lawmaker who represented southwest Ohio has died unexpectedly during the Legislature's summer recess.

State Rep. Terry Blair, a third-term Republican from Montgomery County, was running for re-election this fall.

House Speaker William Batchelder made the announcement about Thursday's death of the 67-year-old Blair, who chaired the House State and Local Government Committee. Batchelder's office said Blair was battling an illness, according to his family.

A legislative biography says Blair served as a trustee in Washington Township for 21 years before heading to the Statehouse. He also served as chief financial officer of Buckeye Pools.

He is survived by his wife, Judy, four children and eight grandchildren. A cause of death was not immediately released.
