2 days of services for former Ohio Gov. Gilligan


A mass in Cincinnati will begin two days of memorial services for former Ohio governor and congressman John J. Gilligan.

The 92-year-old political leader, educator and decorated World War II veteran will also be honored in Columbus on Thursday in a program at the Ohio Statehouse.

His family held a 10:30 a.m. mass Wednesday at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, followed by a visitation from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in downtown Cincinnati.

The Democrat was governor from 1971 to 1975. He also served in the U.S. House, on Cincinnati city council, and, while in his 80s, on the Cincinnati School Board.

He died at home Aug. 26.
