10 Frank X. Lauterbur Obituary

1925 - 2013Frank X. Lauterbur, 88, the revered University of Toledo head football coach and athletic director who was the architect of the team that had three undefeated seasons with 35 straight victories, died Wednesday in Parkcliffe Alzheimer's Community. Mr. Lauterbur of West Toledo had Parkinson's disease and dementia, his daughter Mary said. He was UT football coach and athletic director from 1963-70. His teams won Mid-American Conference championships in 1967 - his first winning UT season - 1969, and 1970. The latter two teams began UT's undefeated run that continued through 1971 under Coach Jack Murphy. As athletic director, Mr. Lauterbur hired coaches who produced winning seasons in other sports for UT, such as Bob Nichols in basketball, Stan Sanders in baseball, and Barney Francis in golf. "Obviously, we lost a great Rocket in Coach Lauterbur," UT athletic director Mike O'Brien said before Wednesday's football game at the Glass Bowl where a moment of silence was observed. "He has so many fans here in the city of Toledo and the university," Mr. O'Brien said. "He mentored and coached so many young people." UT honored Mr. Lauterbur in April at a scrimmage. But in 1963, UT football teams were usually losers. "Frank had to dig out of the pits of hell when he got here," said Max Gerber, retired UT sports information director. "He drove off a lot of football players who weren't willing to pay the price, work-wise, practice-wise, until he got players who bought into his system of discipline." He could be as demanding of his staff as he was of the players, said former Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner, an assistant coach. "He really was uncompromising in his commitment to a winning program," Mr. Finkbeiner said. "Yet all you had to do was ask Frank, if you had an issue that you needed his help on, and the gruff, demanding, former West Point assistant football coach and Marine would sit down immediately beside you and say, 'What can I do to help?' That's why we all feel so warmly as we do. "He taught us to be men," Mr. Finkbeiner said. Four losing seasons in the conference preceded his first championship. "He knew success was like a marathon run. You might not have the fastest time at the end of one mile, but you have 25 more miles to go," Mr. Finkbeiner said. When Mr. Lauterbur secured Chuck Ealey as quarterback, "that was the linchpin to what he was building," Mr. Gerber said. At the time, there were few black college quarterbacks. "Frank recognized greatness in him and gave him a chance to do what he did," Mr. Gerber said. Mr. Ealey said: "He was the one person who believed and gave me a chance to play quarterback. He was a tough coach, but very fair." It was an extraordinary time in Toledo sports, when a local team exploded on the national scene, said Christine Brennan, a USA Today columnist who grew up in the Toledo area following Mr. Lauterbur's teams. "He brought the University of Toledo to prominence," Ms. Brennan said. "When you think about something that happened in 1969 that people still talk about, that's pretty amazing." He was inducted into the Varsity 'T' Hall of Fame in 1983 and the Mid-American Conference Hall of Fame in 1990. Mr. Lauterbur left UT in 1971 to become head football coach at the University of Iowa, where he remained until 1973. He later was an assistant coach for professional teams. He and his family made Toledo home when he became an NFL scout covering Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. He retired in 1993. He was born Aug. 8, 1925, in Cincinnati to Wilhelmina and Frank Lauterbur. His father died in 1932, and several years later his mother married her brother-in-law, Leo Lauterbur. "I learned from my stepfather," Mr Lauterbur told The Toledo Times in 1967. "He led me into sports and into hard work. He was a great believer in working hard at whatever you're doing." He was a 1943 graduate of University of Detroit High School and attended Oberlin College as part of the Marine Corps V-12 program. He played football on Oberlin's Ohio Conference championship team, and was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Marines during World War II. He played football and basketball for Marines teams at Camp Pendleton in 1945-46. He was an All-Ohio Conference guard at Mount Union College from 1946-48. He received a bachelor's degree from Mount Union and later a master's degree from Kent State University. After coaching high school teams in Wickliffe, Ohio, and Cleveland, he was a defensive line coach for the Army team; a line coach at Kent State, and a defensive line and tackle coach for the Baltimore Colts. He was a member of Little Flower Church. He and his wife, Mary, married June 7, 1949. She died April 27, 2006. Surviving are his daughters, Fran Denny, Mary Lauterbur, and Carol Philyaw; son, Frank Lauterbur, and two grandsons. Arrangements are pending at Walker Funeral Home.

36 Obituary of Lewis Kah


Thursday, November 11, 1909. He died without having a disease, his strength gradually giving away. With God and the voice of prayer at his bedside, he fell asleep very gently in Jesus his Saviour, November 11th, a little after 10 a.m. He reached an age of 90 years, 1 month, and 113 days, and leaves to mourn his death his five daughters, 20 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, two sisters, besides many other relatives.

Lewis Kah was born in the village of Lichenau, Grand Duchy of Baden, Germany, on September 29, 1819. He was there baptized and later on confirmed as a member of the Lutheran church. His inclination and love of music showed itself then already. He was employed as an assistant teacher and gave lessons in singing and on instruments.

In the spring of 1845, he came to America with other of his friends and acquaintances and here he continued his work in music, playing with a band and leading and instructing some 25 bands from Ohio. His music took him well over the country and made him a much traveled man.

Novermber 18, 1846, he was united in marriage to Miss Salome Ludwig, the ceremony being performed in Cincinnati. This union was blessed with six daughters, of whom one has passed away a number of years ago. His faithful wife, with whom he lived over fifty-eight years, died on December 20, 1904.

Mr. Kah came to Dinsmore township in 1849, and had made than township his home until the end. August 13, 1862, he enlisted as a private at Camp Dennison in Company K, 20th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and was promoted to principal musician. This regiment belonged to the 17th corps of the Army of Tennessee, which engaged in many battles at Fort Donaldson, Tennessee, Shiloh, Siege of Jackson, and Assault on Vicksburg, etc.

Since the Columbus convention in 1854, which organized the Republican party, he was always a staunch believer of the principles of that party. Lewis Kah was one of the foremost citizens, and a public benefactor. He was a type of that German stock which seeks the elevation of the people through the channels of education and art. It is a stock which once entertaining and opinion, dares stand by that conviction single handed, irrespective of mercenary considerations.

In younger days, he was actively instrumental in developing northern parts of the county. Mr. Kah helped to found the village of Anna and was active in a number of business enterprises, stores, mills, hotels, etc. He had been identified with many enterprises in and about Anna, and was instrumental in securing the C.H.&D. depot at Anna. He was chiefly instrumental in securing the location of the German Lutheran church at Anna, and always contributed liberally to the church.

In an old brick church, five miles south of Anna, he gathered the young people and others for singing, organized and conducted a choir and regular singing socities. He served his church as an officer of the church councils in different capacities, as deacon and as elder. When the frame church in Anna was built in 1870, he was one of the building committee. He also acted as Sunday School Superintendent for a score of years.

In his old age, he passed away quietly in his pleasant home with one of his daughters and a grand daughter. As God prolonged his days far beyond the ordinary time of life, so he also gave him an abundance of the joys of old age. He was active almost to the last. He thoroughly enjoyed the life and progress about him. With his old age and cheerfulness of spirit, he was an example for others who are too ready to complain. He was always cheerful and well pleased.
