The owner of a popular Westerville pizzeria has passed away.

According to a post made by Cardinal Pizza to its social media pages, owner Bob Williamson has died after a battle with cancer.


“As many of you already know, Cardinal Pizza owner Bob Williamson has passed away after a long, courageous fight with pancreatic cancer. We are all grieving his loss and legacy and will share any updates in the coming days as to his funeral service and restaurant hours. If you knew and loved Bob you know he loved his family, this restaurant and Westerville. He will be sorely missed,” the statement reads.

Known for offering both Columbus and New York-style pies, Cardinal Pizza has served as an Uptown Westerville hotspot since it opened in 2019. Throughout the years, Williamson helped to give back to the community as well, including donations made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and more.
