    • Obituary, The Columbus [OH] Dispatch, p. 2-B (14 Nov 1995):
      "Runner qualified for dream race just before death
      "By Brent LaLonde, Dispatch Staff Reporter
      "A Canfield, Ohio, man who died of a heart attack shortly after completing the Columbus Marathon on Sunday [12 Nov] was trying to qualify for next spring's 100th Boston Marathon.
      "He was so intent on being prepared that he wore his running shoes to work on Friday because they weren't broken in enough, a business partner said yesterday.
      "Joseph W. Baschnagel, 54, collapsed minutes after finishing the race in 3 hours, 32 minutes and 38 seconds - a time good enough to qualify him to run in the world's most prestigious marathon.
      "'He had been training for the Columbus Marathon and was really looking forward to it,' said Bill Siskovic, who worked with Baschnagel at an oil and gas company in Canfield. 'This was shocking to us.'
      "Baschnagel was the first competitor to die in the Columbus Marathon's history.
      "Baschnagel had run in several marathons but had not competed in many in recent years.
      "The expected frigid temperatures didn't temper Baschnagel's enthusiasm for Sunday's race, Siskovic said....
      "Baschnagel was taken to Grant Medical Center where he died at 1:24 p.m. His body was taken to the Franklin County morgue, but an autopsy was not performed at the request of family members.
      "Baschnagel's family told the coroner's office that he had a history of heart problems. The funeral home handling his arrangements said he died of a heart attack....
      "Baschnagel was president and chief executive officer of Everflow Eastern, a gas and oil investment firm in Canfield.
      "He is survived by his wife, Brenda; a son, Gregory Baschnagel of Canfield; and a daughter, Jennifer Baschnagel of Salisbury, N.C...."
