Deaf Leader Dies

The founder California's Orange County Deaf Advocacy Center is dead at the age of 50. Richard Roehm suffered a heart attack and died at a local hospital earlier this month. A Cal State Fullerton grad, he worked for Disneyland until he helped to start the Santa Ana-based center in 1998. Roehm was hard of hearing until he became deaf at the age of 11. Below is a video of Roehm at working at a information booth last year to get the word out about his group.
