Jacob I. “Jake” Lengler, age 89, of Columbus, passed away at home Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023.

Born Jul. 14, 1934, in Dover, he was the son of the late Lester and Eleanora Pfeiffer Lengler. Jake graduated from Dover High School, and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in business from Baldwin-Wallace College. He was a standout basketball player at both Dover and B-W.

Following his service time, Jake was employed by the Western Electric Company in Columbus, from which he retired.
