Association Updates

Remembering Larry Robinaugh

We were extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Larry Robinaugh, the founder of Robinaugh EMS in Bellefontaine and the father of our Association Vice President and State EMFTS Board Member, Darin Robinaugh.  Robinaugh Ambulance Service was founded on October 1, 1976, when Larry Robinaugh purchased the ambulance service from the funeral home he worked for, Eichholtz – Kennedy Funeral Home. Larry was one of the first EMTs in Logan County. At that time, the ambulance service was supported by two emergency vehicles, a Dodge Van and a Cadillac. Robinaugh soon contracted with several townships and the City of Bellefontaine to provide emergency services to the residents. In 1984, Darin Robinaugh joined his father in the family business. The two partnered in 2000 and changed the name to Robinaugh EMS. Larry retired in 2006 after 47 years of service to the community.  Larry served on our Association board and we are grateful for his friendship and contributions to our industry.
Services will be held at Eichholtz Funeral Home, 321 N. Main St. Bellefontaine, Ohio 43311. Visitation will be on Monday November 15th from 2:00 pm-6:00 pm with the funeral service on Tuesday the 16th at 11:00 am at the funeral home.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to Larry’s son, Darin and his family.
