Edwin Ed H. OtteIt is with great sadness that we announce the death of PDG Ed Otte.

From his obituary, "A big part of his life was spent in the service of others through his work with the Millersport Lions Club. During his 43-year tenure as a Lion, Ed served in nearly every club office and beyond, to the state level where he served as Cabinet Secretary-Treasurer and District Governor. He was inducted into the District OH-7 Hall of Fame. He was Trustee Emeritus of the Ohio Lions Eye Research Foundation and served 6 years on the Central Ohio Lions Eye Bank Operating Board. Ed’s crowning achievement and position he loved the most was serving as Treasurer of the Millersport Lions Sweet Corn Festival for 34 consecutive years. In 2009, he was inducted into the Ohio Festivals & Events Association’s Legion of Honor.”
