Instead of being called a Congressman, he preferred the term 'representative to Congress.' And throughout his 36 years in the U.S. House, he represented the people of Stark County and northeast OH incredibly well.

The Republican represented a district that centered on his native Stark County.

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown of OH offered his condolences on Regula's passing, in part, saying, "Without Ralph, there would be no Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Andin my career in the Congress, I have tried to put things in place that will make OH even have a bigger bridge".

According to, Regula was born in Beach City, Ohio, to O.F and Orpha Regula, he spent two years in the Navy during World War II before obtaining a bachelor's degree in business administration from Mount Union College (now the University of Mount Union) and a law degree from the William McKinley School of Law.

Regula founded the steel caucus in Congress and his hallmark was constituent service. Without Ralph and Mary, there would be no First Ladies Historic Site in Canton. His last foray into politics was as a supporter of John Kasich's presidential campaign.
