French remembered for his legacy of philanthropy

The Piqua Community Foundation Board of Directors, staff and friends remember Lt Col Daniel P. French, USAFR, Ret, who passed away on October 13.

Dan’s legacy of “giving until it feels good!” is memorialized by the impact of The French Oil Mill Machinery Company Fund, The Alfred W. French Fund, his generous support of the Pitch Piqua program and the countless ways he supported The Foundation and numerous other charities in our community.

Dan served on The Foundation board from 1996 until his passing, serving as president in 2004 and 2005. A Vietnam veteran, his lifetime of devotion to serving others was recognized with the Piqua Area Chamber of Commerce’s Order of George Award for lifetime civic achievement.

We mourn the loss of one of our community’s most dedicated supporters and will carry his legacy forward in our service to the Piqua community.
