The Cincinnati Enquirer METRO Sunday, June 27, 1999 B7 Obituaries Nicholas Picciano, 78, was 'Renaissance man' He made things most would buy BY NICOLE HAMILTON The Cincinnati Enquirer Nicholas D. Picciano used to tell his family, "If you can read, there isn't anything you can't do." The retired English teacher and organist died Thursday of congestive heart failure at Hospice of Cincinnati in Blue Ash. Mr. Picciano, a longtime Loveland resident, was 78. "I often wondered what the world would be like without my father," said his daughter, Maria C. Picciano of Loveland. "We called him 'the Renaissance man' because he did so many different things. He was extremely resourceful." Mr. Picciano graduated from Purcell High School in 1939. He attended the Teacher's College Athenaeum of Ohio for three years before joining the Army during World War II. During the war, he participated in the D-Day invasion. While stationed in England he was allowed to play the organ at Westminster Abbey in London, a highlight of his life as a musician. After earning his bachelor's degree in music from t h e Teacher's College Ath- Mr. Picciano enaeum in 1946, Mr. Picciano worked as an organist and choir director for various parishes in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, including Assumption Church in Walnut Hills, St. Agnes in Bond Hill, St. Columban in Loveland and St. Philip in Morrow. He began a career as an English teacher for the Loveland City Schools in 1957. He earned his master's in education at Xavier University in the early 1960s. Mr. Picciano also was an avid photographer. He built, his own telescopes, as well as the machine to grind special mirrors. He also built an outdoor booth that enabled him to take pictures of birds without disturbing them. "Things other people paid for, my father would learn how to make himself," Ms.' Picciano said. With the help of the home economics teachers at the school where he taught, he learned how to sew. Over the years he made a two-piece pin-striped suit for his daugh ter, a suit coat for his son and several pieces for his infant grandchildren. In 1982, Mr. Picciano had six-way bypass surgery. His wife of 52 years, Jeanne Picciano of Loveland, aid he was given 10 years to live. He surprised the doctors by living 17. "He was very spiritual and very moral," his daughter said. "And I think he did it all. He led a very full life." Other survivors include a son, Gregory Joseph Picciano of Atlanta; a brother, John A. Picciano of Kenwood; a sister, Philomena Dillhoff of Finneytown; five grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. Visitation will be 6-8 p.m. Monday at Tufts Schildmey-er Funeral Home, 129 N.

Clara Dennis, boxing fan, Housekeeper of the Year BY NICOLE HAMILTON The Cincinnati Enquirer Clara "Sissy" Dennis, a lifelong resident of Fair-mount, died Wednesday at University Hospital of head injuries from a fall at work. She was 39. Raised by her grandmother, their roles reversed when her grandmother became ill. Ms. Dennis cared for her grandmother at home until her grandmother's death in February. Ms. Dennis also helped to raise her niece, ' Kristie Skellwies, who lived with her for several years. "She would help anybody in any way. She truly went ; the extra mile," said Mrs. Skellwies, of Fairmount. In 1996, Ms. Dennis began working as a housekeeper at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Sharonville. Within a year she won the Housekeeper of the Year Award for the company's region that included Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Ms. Dennis Michigan. She was also nominated for the company's national Housekeeper of the Year Award. "Everyone loved her. We're all a little in shock," said housekeeping supervisor Maria Taylor. "She was up on a pedestal, always friendly and doing anything she could to help. She was the absolute best." A few years ago, Ms, Dennis developed an interest in watching boxing. A fan of boxer Oscar de la Hoya, she often called her uncle, Bill L. Flinchum of Goshen, to re mind him of coming televised fights. She also enjoyed fishing and taking care of her dog, Star. Other survivors include three sisters, Nancy Lung of Goshen, Carol Morris of Price Hill and Sharon Allen of Belfast, Ohio; three brothers, Michael Dennis of Chilli-cothe, Edward Dennis of Ba-tavia and Joe Dennis of Clifton; three uncles; and several nieces and nephews.

Kehoe denies he wanted to set up white nation Statement follows getting life terms 'The Associated Press LITTLE ROCK, Ark. A man sentenced to life in prison for killing a family as part of a plot to set up a whites-only nation in the Pacific Northwest says there's no truth to prosecutors' claims. "There were no aims, no group, nothing of that nature," Chevie Kehoe, 26, said in a telephone interview from jail Friday after he was sentenced to five terms of life in prison without parole. Mr. Kehoe, of Colville, Wash., and a co-defendant, Danny Lee, 26, of Yukon, Okla., were convicted last month of racketeering, con- M 4 - W spiracy and three counts of murder in the deaths of William Mueller, his wife, Nancy, and her 8-v e a r - o 1 d daughter Chevie Sarah Pow- Kehoe ell in January 1996. Jurors already have recommended the death penalty for Mr. Lee, who has a hearing scheduled for Tuesday. Mr. Kehoe and his brother, Cheyne, became known nationwide after a Feb. 15, 1997, shootout with police near Wilmington, Ohio. The gunplay was caught on videotape and broadcast around the nation. The brothers were indict ed by an Ohio grand jury and a manhunt began. Four months later, Cheyne Kehoe turned himself in and told police where to find his brother in Utah. At his sentencing, Mr. Kehoe maintained he was innocent. Prosecutors said Mr. Lee and Mr. Kehoe wanted Mr. Mueller's guns to sell or use to further their conspiracy to overthrow the government and set up a new nation where people of Asian, black, Hispanic and Jewish descent would be banned. Mr. Kehoe said he considered himself a white separatist, but not a white supremacist, because he believes that nature intended for different races to be separate. Indianapolis boy who slipped from mom's arms and fell 6 stories dies The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS A 16-month-old boy who fell from the eighth story of a downtown office building died Saturday, eight days after he slipped from his mother's arms as she tried to open a window. Christopher Collins plummeted from. the window of his father's downtown law office on June 18, fell more than six stories and landed on a metal overhang connected to the office building. He was rushed to Wishard Hospital then later transferred to Riley Hospital for Children's intensive care unit with multiple head, chest and lower extremity injuries. The Indianapolis Police Department investigated the fall and concluded that it was an accident. IPD spokesman Sgt.. Matthew Steward said V : 1 How to help Those interested in making a memorial contribution should contact Gary Bryant at (317) 955-7414. Saturday that the boy's death will not cause Detective Timothy Knight, the case's lead investigator, to examine the case further. "He indicated that no, it would not really change his investigation at all," Sgt. Steward said. "From all indications right now, his review would indicate that it was an accidental death, that there was no criminal intent." The boy's parents, 45-year-old Robert C. Collins III and 29-year-old Sherry Collins, issued a statement through the hospital Satur- day. "We express our gratitude for the outpouring of support and sympathy from the community, our families and friends," the family said in the statement. "Your prayers enabled us to endure this time of great tragedy and sorrow. "We also express our utmost gratitude to law enforcement, emergency and rescue personnel, and the doctors and staff of Riley Hospital whose efforts allowed us to spend these precious last few days with our beloved son." Following the boy's fall, a one-block section of Market Street was blocked off with police cruisers, and a large crowd of pedestrians gathered to watch emergency workers and police conduct their investigation.
