BEDFORD – The Bedford City School District is mourning the sudden loss of a beloved intermediate school principal.

Superintendent Dr. Andrea Celico confirms to WKYC Channel 3 News she learned of Paul G. Ward’s death Monday night.

It’s unclear how the 46-year-old died but during his time with the district he made a huge impact on the community.

A school board member tells WKYC that the incident happened during a spinning class and that Ward was the picture of health and had a healthy lifestyle.

The board member said he loved the students beyond words and that Ward’s son plays football at The Ohio State University. The son is a 200-meter state champion in track.

The board member said there was absolutely no known history of any problems and that Ward was loved by teachers, kids and entire school staff. He often opened up his own wallet for kids to eat when they didn’t have the money to do so.
