COLUMBUS—The following statement can be attributed to Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina):

"Former Senate President Bill Harris was a beloved and respected member of our Senate family. A humble public servant, Bill represented the best of Ohio. He served his country first on the battlefields as a Marine before coming home to build a business and invest in the people and the communities he later represented in the Ohio House and Senate. His devotion to his family, his authentic faith and his genuine interest in his fellow Ohioans garnered respect by all who knew him. On behalf of my colleagues, I extend our deepest condolences to the Harris family. His legacy of service and honor will forever be remembered in his hometown of Ashland and in the halls of the Ohio Statehouse."
