Carl J. Fuderer

Carl Joseph Fuderer passed away peacefully Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2007, after witnessing nearly a century of life in America.

He was born April 1, 1917. He and his wife were longtime residents of Middleburg Heights and later of Chatham Township. He worked in the Civilian Conservation Corps, then became a master carpenter. Mr. Fuderer’s legacy can be seen throughout the Cleveland area in the many houses that he designed and built and other buildings that he worked on, such as St. Luke’s Church in Lakewood and the former Central National Bank downtown. He was passionate about ballroom dancing and flying his small plane, both of which he did until he was almost 90. He served in the Army for four years during World War II, most of that time spent in India.

He fell deeply in love with Irene Mesaros, who became his wife for 54 years until her passing in 1996.

He will be greatly missed by his son, Gary Joseph, and daughter, Laura Sue.

Ohio Cremation & Memorial Society handled arrangements.
