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.
