You can find all kinds of records for this man at www.familysearch.org (a free site of the LDS). There is an obituary listed on the Columbus Metro Library Obituary Index - http://www.columbuslibrary.org/cmlcnix/searchobitform.cfm -I have requested a copy of the obit and will post it here when I receive it.
