  1. Deborah Mayer Coleman :

    Mr. Nevar hired me to work at TRW in his office in 1975. I was promoted to work in Human Resources at the Clarkwood Road Plant a few years later, and again promoted to work at Sherwood Refractories. I was able to get a college education from TRW. I contributed to the 401K plan and joined the credit union. Art was friendly and encouraged me to take advantage of the benefits TRW had to offer. He even called about several homes in Euclid wanting me to invest in real estate. One strength Art had was to take young kids around the shop to see if that was a place they wanted to work. It was hot and dirty and smelled of coolant. Some young people liked factory work but others did not. He told me he began as a timekeeper at TRW and rose to become the man who hired timekeepers and others. I often wonder what would have happened to me if I had not been hired by TRW. Thanks to Art I had a good paying job for over 11 years.

  2. Lynn, this is Sue Weber. We were friends in high school many years ago. I joined Job’s Daughters because of our friendship! I was just looking through old pictures and saw one if you and me at Cedar Point. My sister just sent me this link. Had I seen this earlier, I would have visited you at the funeral home. My sympathies on the loss of your dad.
