Mill Creek MetroParks has announced the death of Lanterman’s Mill manager, Greg O’Neal, who on Friday suffered a severe cardiac event while working.

O’Neal was transported to a local hospital where he later died, the park system stated in a news release.

“Greg was a dedicated employee serving as the Lanterman’s Mill manager for nearly 11 years. Greg will long be remembered as a fixture of Lanterman’s Mill where his dedication and passion for the MetroParks will be greatly missed by his colleagues and visitors alike,” the park system stated.

O’Neal, 64, lived in Columbiana.

“Mill Creek MetroParks would like to thank first responders, MetroParks police, and visitors for their quick response and efforts in providing their medical assistance.”

The mill had been closed afterward but will reopen to the public on Wednesday during normal business hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Mill Creek Park was established in 1891 by Volney Rogers as the first park district in Ohio. In 1989, the diverse lands now known as Mill Creek MetroParks officially became a metropolitan park district.
