Milford Martin Romanoff

ROMANOFF Milford M. 1921 - 2009 Milford Martin Romanoff, age 87, passed away on June 21, 2009, after a short illness. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio on August 21, 1921, to Barney and Edythe Romanoff. He moved to Toledo as an infant and was a graduate of DeVilbiss High School. During those years he excelled in art, sports and design competition. He went on to get degrees in architectural design and business at University of Michigan and University of Toledo. At U of M, he was in the ZBT fraternity. Because of WWII, he interrupted his education. He enlisted in the Navy officers training program at the Navy Pier in Chicago. As a lieutenant serving in the Pacific during 1943-46, he was distinguished as a hero having saved the lives of 59 sailors. He received numerous medals and citations including six silver stars. Recently a book was published in which he was featured and the History channel did a one hour TV program in which his acts of heroism were featured. In spite of his war heroism, he rarely ever spoke about it. During his younger years, he was a City of Toledo tennis champion and nine times was the Glengary County Club golf champion. He also was an excellent baseball player and even had a very short stint with the Toledo Mud Hens. Community service and giving of himself was a major driving force his entire adult life. He served on numerous boards both locally and nationally, many of which he served in executive capacity. Locally he was a founding member of the Neighborhood Improvement Foundation of Toledo and served on the Lucas County Overall Economic Development Committee. He was instrumental in designing and creating the Centennial Mall at the University of Toledo while serving on the UT Beautification Committee. Most recently he helped in getting the outdoor lighting designed for the University of Toledo. His artistic skills were all used while serving on the Medical College of Ohio Advisory committee. Some of his many leadership roles included chairman of the Toledo Amateur Baseball and Softball Commission, secretary of the Kidney Foundation of NW Ohio, Board of Directors of the Seniors Volunteer Program, Chairman of the Salvation Army Board, president of the B'nai Brith Softball league, and president of the Ohio Association of B'nai Brith. Milford and his family were lifelong members of Temple Shomer Emunim. For many years he served on the Temple Brotherhood Board. He was also a Hadassah Associate Member. He served on the boards of directors of the Anti-Defamation League of Ohio and its national board, the Cummings Treatment Center for Adolescents, the Children's Services Board of Lucas County, and Toledo Botanical Gardens. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge for 25 years and was recently honored as the Masonic "Man of the Year". He and his loving wife Marjorie were the only original continuous supporters and members of the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. They were also the longest continuous members of the Toledo Zoo and the Museum of Art. He was an active member of both the University of Michigan and University of Toledo Alumni Associations. In 1996 he was honored as the UT Outstanding Alumnus of the Year. Milford was listed in Who's Who in the Midwest, Who's Who in America, 2000 Noteworthy American, Directory of Distinguished Americans, and 5000 Personalities of the World. During his career as a designer of homes and as a contractor, he designed and built innumerable homes, schools, commercial and industrial buildings in Toledo and the surrounding areas. He also designed luxury homes in Chicago and Columbus. He plotted and developed many subdivisions locally. Some of his home designs were featured in national magazines. Through the buildings he built, the improvements in Toledo he influenced, the commissions and boards that he served on, is could be said that virtually every citizen in the Toledo area was somehow touched one time or another by his creativity, his compassionate and caring nature, and his good deeds. In 2008 he was lauded as a Jefferson Award finalist which validated his service to his community. Milford never expected or sought after praise, commendation, or thanks for giving back to the community. He was always very soft spoken and unassuming by nature. As many hours as he devoted to work and the numerous board meetings that he attended, his devotion to family was his most important attribute. His pride and love of his wife, children, and grandchildren was paramount. His impeccable manners, his penchant for perfection, his high ideals and standards were an example for his family to emulate. He always made time for family and friends. The legacy that he created and passed on to his family will live on forever. He will always be remembered as a loving, gentle, quiet, kind and righteous man. He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Marjorie and his sons, Dr. Bennett Romanoff (Hedva) and Lawrence (Deborah); seven grandchildren, Daniel (Halley) Romanoff, David, Lauren and Michelle Romanoff, Jennifer (Jason) Crichfield, and Michael and Steven Romanoff and his loving sister, Connie Brunswick. He was preceded in death by his treasured daughter, Janet Beth Romanoff. The family extends special thanks to Vicki Rashleigh, care giver, for her devoted service. The funeral will be held at Congregation B'nai Israel, 6525 Sylvania Avenue on Wednesday, June 24, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. Arrangements by the Robert H. Wick/ Wisniewski Funeral Home (419-535-5840). Following the cemetery service, the family will receive friends at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Bennett Romanoff as well as Thursday 1 to 8 p.m. and 11 to 2 p.m. on Friday. Contributions can be made to the Temple Shomer Emunim or the donor's choice.
