Enquirer Staff Writer

Retired Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert S. Kraft died early Monday at Bethesda North Hospital.

Kraft, 75, retired last year after serving more than three decades on the bench.

Visitation begins at noon today at Adath Israel Synagogue, 3201 E. Galbraith Road, Amberley Village, followed by the service at 1:30 p.m.

He is survived by his wife, Madeline, and three children.

The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the Masonic Learning Center for Children, 317 E. Fifth St., Cincinnati, 45202, or Adath Israel Synagogue.
