“His passing is a tremendous loss but his impact on our school district and community will be felt for many years to come,” the district said.
Romano is survived by his three children, 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, his obituary said.
Romano was heavily involved in the community.
He is past president of the Ohio School Personnel Administrators Association. He volunteered at Soin Hospital since 2013 and sang with the Administrator’s Barbershop/Gospel Quartet for 25 years.
He had been a parishioner of St. Luke the Evangelist Catholic Church since 1968 where he served as a lector, Leisure Club president and called the bingo games at the annual church picnic for years.
He was inducted into the Beavercreek High School Athletic Hall of Fame for his 25 years of announcing the High School Girl’s home Varsity Basketball games.
Donations in his memory may be made to St. Luke Catholic Church or to the Beavercreek City Schools.
