According to the Coldwater Athletic Director Eric Goodwin, Lou Brunswick, who served as a teacher and coach for the Coldwater Village Exempted Schools baseball team for many years, passed away at the age of 93. He was the second coach from Coldwater to pass away in the span of fewer than two weeks. On September 21, Brian Harlamert lost his battle with cancer at the age of 51. Both the ACME League Hall of Fame and the Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame have inducted former Brunswick players into their respective halls of fame.
“His Hall of Fame baseball coaching career speaks for itself, but Coach Brunswick was so much more,” Goodwin told NewsCenter 7. “He was an outstanding man to a very special family.” In a message that he posted on Twitter, Coldwater Superintendent Doug Mader referred to the legacy that Mr. Brunswick had left as being “unmeasurable.” He expressed his condolences to the Brunswick family on behalf of himself and the Coldwater Exempted Village School System. “Thoughts and prayers to the Brunswick family,” he stated. The arrangements for the funeral have not yet been made public.
