In November, David Bryan donated a grand limestone memorial to honor his well-known parents' memory at the Belmont Country Club where they were once long-time members.
His father, Ashel Bryan, a retired bank executive and a former board chairman of Bowling Green State University and the Medical College of Ohio trustees who was known for his philanthropy, was an avid golfer who played at the club for decades. His mother was Dorothy Bryan, was known for her "Chemo Paintings" that she made as she underwent breast cancer treatments. They died in 2010 and 2001, respectively.
Now, Mr. David Bryan, of Perrysburg Township, said he is hurt someone apparently spray painted profanity over his beloved sign at Belmont.
“I’m just extremely unhappy that we couldn’t provide not only my parents but the Belmont community with this new asset and not even have it go up a year,” said Mr. Bryan. He is offering a $250 reward for any information that leads to a conviction.
He declined to say how much the sign located at Bates and Carnoustie roads was worth, but said it will cost a significant amount to specially clean the sign.
Perrysburg Township police said this week they do not have any suspects.
It’s is the second report of vandalism at the country club recently. A 2012 red Volkswagen Jetta, a prize hole-in-one in a contest, was spray painted in the club’s parking lot last week.
Detective Sgt. Jim Gross said police suspect the two vandalism reports at the country club are related.
Belmont Country Club is located at 29601 Bates Road.
