90 years, still going strong

Happy 90th birthday, Mr. Scheffer!

Maurice H. Sheffer is in Hamilton County to celebrate his 90th birthday with his family.

Scheffer was born April 5, 1927 in Richmond, Ind. He grew up in Williamsburg, Ind. then moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, and finally moved to Galion, Ohio where he lives today.

He served in the Army Air Corps in World War II.  He later worked in labor relations at Avco in Cincinnati, then at North Electric and Peabody in Galion, Ohio.

According to his daughter, Hamilton County’s own Cheryl Garner, he still plays golf every day he can and he made his 12th hole-in-one last July in Franklin, Tenn. at the family reunion.

From all of us at Hamilton County’s hometown newspaper, “Thanks for your service to our country and Happy birthday, Mr. Scheffer!”
