Richard Broh Salzer, M.D., died March 28, 2014. A lifelong resident of Cincinnati, he was the dear husband of Betty Salzer and beloved father of Debbie Kincaid (Thom), Pam Taylor (Gene McCabe), David Salzer (Wanda), Stephenie Cox and step-sons Tom Taylor (Betsy), and Dan Taylor (Barbara). He is also survived by 14 grandchildren, four great-children, brother Beeb Salzer (Debbie) and two nieces. He was preceded in death by his parents, Bernice and Clarence Salzer and step-son Ken Taylor. Dick was born in Huntington, West Virginia in 1927. He was a graduate of Walnut Hills High School, University of Cincinnati McMicken College of Arts & Sciences and the U.C. College of Medicine. For over 40 years he was a well-respected and dearly loved obstetrician/gynecologist in private practice in Cincinnati. He was also a veteran of the U.S. Army, having served in Okinawa during the Korean War. In his retirement, Dick was a faithful volunteer for People Working Cooperatively (PWC) and was recently honored as the Warren County Volunteer of the year for his dedication to this organization. He also volunteered for Green Acres Foundation. He was an active member of the First Unitarian Church, the Cincinnati Ob-Gyn Society, Merriemakers Dance Club, and an avid supporter of the Arts. Dick and Betty enjoyed world travel, especially their trips to Asia and South America. Well into his eighties he still played tennis, cycled, skied and sailed, both in his local community and at his summer home on Lake Charlevoix. In keeping with his passion for medicine, Dr. Salzer bequeathed his body to the U.C. College of Medicine. A celebration of his life will be held at the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 536 Linton Street (at Reading Road), Cincinnati, on 19 April, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Walnut Hills Alumni Foundation or People Working Cooperatively.
