A personal Tribute
by jerry leyendecker
Thanks for letting me know about the recent passing one of Manitowoc's favorite sons, Ron Kaminski. He was a very prominent attorney and community leader in Manitowoc for many years. But few will remember that he was also a rock'n'roll singer back in the early 1960s performing with the band Peter and the Saints, led by Peter Christensen of Manitowoc, former drummer for the first such band in 1957 in Manitowoc, JL & The Comets, you may remember. Ron's most favorite tune to sing was 'The House of the Rising Sun'. He last performed the tune in 2005 with The Comets at the 45th reunion of the LHS class of 1960, as documented by The Comets reunion performance (DVD) at the Silver Valley Supper Club in Manitowoc.
He was an outstanding civic leader during his later life and should be remembered as such.
Ron Kaminski Remembered During Gathering
Lakeshore News, State News
Manitowoc attorney Ron Kaminski died early yesterday in Milwaukee. The founder of Kaminski & Pozorski Law firm had a long list of community contributions, including being the point man to completely restore the downtown Capitol Theatre into the showcase it is today. He retired from his law practice in 2014 and during a gathering at Kathy’s Stagedoor Pub to honor him, a friend Rick Gerroll created and recited a poem about his life.
Kaminski was a graduate of the 1961 class at Lincoln High School and earned his law degree from the University of Wisconsin Madison. Besides spearheading the renovation of the Capitol Civic Centre, which re-opened in the fall of 1987, his other community credits included: the Little Sandwich Theatre in Manitowoc & the Forst Inn at Tisch Mills.
