In memory of Thomas P. Gilmartin.
| WHEREAS, The members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Thomas P. Gilmartin on the sorrowful occasion of his death; and|
| WHEREAS, Thomas Gilmartin left an indelible impression on the people whose lives he touched, and he will be remembered as a spirited individual who contributed immeasurably to the world around him. Among his endeavors, he was a member of the Ohio House of Representatives for eleven terms and the Ohio Senate for two years, and during his tenure, he sponsored the homestead-exemption act and advocated for increasing educational opportunities for the mentally challenged. Without a doubt, he was a dedicated and devoted public servant whose exemplary career serves as an inspiration for others; and |
| WHEREAS, Thomas Gilmartin's regard for improving the quality of life in our society was clearly evident in his personal sacrifices of time and effort to his family, friends, and community. Giving generously of his energy and abilities in all of his endeavors, he displayed exceptional concern and insight, and his absence will be keenly felt; and|
| WHEREAS, In addition, Thomas Gilmartin was a host on the topic of poetry for various radio and television programs. He always used his talents to the benefit of others, and the laurels of his life stand as a tribute not only to him but also to those he left behind. Although the void his death has created can never be filled, the legacy of care and commitment he established will surely live on. The world is a richer place for his having been in it, and he will be sorely missed; therefore be it|
| RESOLVED, That we, the members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio, in adopting this Resolution, salute the memory of a truly remarkable man, Thomas P. Gilmartin; and be it further|
| RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a duly authenticated copy of this Resolution to the family of Thomas P. Gilmartin.|
