FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The former head of a now defunct pharmacy chain has died, according to published reports.
Rick Keltsch, who led the Keltsch Bros. pharmacy chain as the company's president and CEO until its merger with Scott's Food & Pharmacy — a regional chain that was a subsidiary of Supervalu before being acquired by Kroger in April 2007 — died unexpectedly on Wednesday. He was 64 years old.
Keltsch is survived by his wife Jennie, children and grandchildren.
