A lifelong Democrat, Kaye was an elected official of the Ohio Democratic Central Committee Ward 3 Precinct A in Hudson.

We walked and we talked, but the road trips still bring a smile. Thank you for letting me be your friend. Our condolences to the Albright family and friends. May you rest in peace
