Congressman Mike Turner released the following statement today mourning the passing of Dr. Benjamin Schuster:

“My family and I were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of a champion of our community – Dr. Benjamin Schuster. Dr. Schuster’s contributions to Dayton span his professional work as a cardiologist, to him and his late wife Marian’s dedication to the promotion of the arts. I had the honor of working with them as our community built the Schuster Performing Arts Center. Saying that he and his commitment to the betterment of Dayton will be missed is an understatement. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family as we grieve his loss.”
