Robert “Bob” S. Crane Legacy Celebrated with Foundational Gift
A lead gift of $2 million celebrates the life and legacy of Robert “Bob” S. Crane, Jr., lovingly contributed by his late wife, Loann Crane. “This donation reflects our commitment to lead by example and I hope it will prompt others in this community to follow with their financial support of this long-awaited and much- needed community center,” Loann Crane said in a statement issued by the Upper Arlington Community Center Capital Campaign Committee in August 2021. “Bob loved this community and loved sports. He would have been proud to see this legacy continue for generations of Upper Arlington families.”
The couple’s daughter, Jamie Crane, and her husband, Tim Miller, follow in their family’s footsteps to pay it forward for their UA neighbors. They have endowed a need-based membership fund to grant community members access to the Center, a reminder of assistance Jamie’s father received from UA residents in the past.
