John Ruch Memorial Fund

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of John Ruch, the long-time president of Historic Harmony, Harmony, Pa. John passed away on November 4th after a long illness. Despite his illness, he continued working for Historic Harmony right up until a week before his death. John served as president of Historic Harmony from 1984 to 1990, and again for more than two decades starting in 1995. During that time, Historic Harmony purchased its principal museum building, upgraded facilities, completed a community-wide historic resources inventory, and supported the Harmony Borough's creation of a local historic landmark district. John also worked to increase cooperation among Historic Harmony, Old Economy Village in Ambridge and Historic New Harmony in New Harmony, Indiana, Our sympathies to Johns wife, Shelby Ruch, their two sons, John and Chris, and other family members. John leaves behind a staff, board of directors, and a huge group of dedicated volunteers who, while saddened by the loss of an advocate, mentor and friend, are ready to continue the work that John so effectively championed. Donations may be made to Historic Harmony in John Ruch's memory to help us continue his work.
