Harry William “Bill” Columbo, 77, of Bellaire, Ohio passed away with family by his side, Tuesday April 12, 2022.

Bill was born September 12, 1944 in Bellaire, Ohio, a son of the late Daniel and Mary (Pyle) Columbo.

He was Catholic by faith. Bill retired from Ormet and was a lifetime member of the Bellaire Sons of Italy, a social member of the Bellaire VFW and a big fan of St. John’s Catholic School where his children and grandchildren attended. Bill was a loyal father and grandfather never missing an event or ball game, and a faithful friend. When asked by a doctor if he could do anything in the world, what would it be, Bill said he would go down town and see his friends.

Bill is survived by his three children; Kelly (Kevin) Columbo-Johnson, Daniel Columbo and Dana (Dennis McKinley) Columbo, and two grandchildren; Kevin Isaac Columbo Johnson and Gillian (Gilly) Marie Johnson.

Family and friends will be received Monday April 18, 2022 at the Bauknecht-Altmeyer Funeral Home and Crematory 441 37th Street, Bellaire, Ohio from 2-8pm where services will be held Tuesday April 20, 2022 at 1pm with Father Daniel Heusel as Celebrant. A Sons of Italy service will be held Monday at 7pm. Interment to follow in Powhatan Cemetery.

We last saw Bill at the Sons of Italy, among his friends. Lots of memories of younger days. He always had a friendly smile, ready to talk and have some laughs. We won’t forget him. May God bless him and all his family.

Bill and my brother Dan were best friends all through high school and then many years until Dan’s death. The girls were crazy about them both and they shared so many great times together. After Bill was unable to drive, my husband
Steve, took him around to the places he needed to go. He will be sadly missed and we extend our condolences to his family.
