Robert Mercer, CEO who helped win Goodyear War, dies at age 96 - Akron Beacon Journal
Under Mercer, Goodyear introduced its first run-flat tire and also radial racing tires that debuted at the 1987 Indianapolis 500.Decrying takeoversMercer became a critic of Wall Street’s takeover culture, calling a proliferation of hostile takeovers and U.S. securities laws that allowed them "an obscenity."He took part in an "Ethics in America" panel discussion, part of the Fred Friendly Seminars series on PBS, in 1988, where he decried takeover culture."It’s a one-time hit, where we get a spike in the share price and we cash out a corporation instead of operating it as a viable operation sometime in the future," Mercer said. "We have to have a plan that means the corporate will survive, will become more competitive, will increase jobs and enhance value over a period of time and not just a one-shot price."Mercer in "Wheels of Fortune" said he never bought the idea that the shareholder is the owner of a company."They own a piece of paper with the company’s name on it, and they’ll get rid of that paper at the drop of an eighth of a point in the stock price," he said. "Our employees, whether union or otherwise, have a wife or husband and kids and years invested in the company, and they’re looking at investing more years. First and foremost, you have an obligation to your customers. But you have to do the right thing by your employees."Mercer’s background Mercer was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, the son of the late Margaret and George Mercer. His father was a Ford dealer and police commissioner in Roselle Park, New Jersey, a New York City suburb.He had a twin brother, Richard, and older brother Donald, both of whom had successful careers in advertising and broadcasting.Mercer won a baseball scholarship to Ohio University but left after one semester when the U.S. entered World War II and he and his twin were drafted into the Navy. Mercer attended officer candidate school at Yale University and received an officer’s commission, and served on the USS Cleveland. He graduated from Yale in 1946 with a degree in mechanical engineering.He is survived by his wife, Mary (Deuel); they married in 1947. That same year he joined Goodyear as a sales trainee, selling conveyor belt and industrial hose in the company’s Duluth, Minnesota, territory that included Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.He was promoted throughout his years at Goodyear and was named company president in 1978, chief operating officer in 1980 and then chairman and CEO in 1983, succeeding Charles Pilliod. He retired as CEO at age 65, with Tom Barrett taking over the top position."It is not an exaggeration to say that the Goodyear of today would not exist without Bob Mercer," said Rich Kramer, Goodyear chairman, president and chief executive officer."As our CEO during the attempted takeover of the company in 1986, Bob stood firm in his commitment to our associates, to the company, to our customers and to the city of Akron. He not only saved the company from an uncertain fate but used the experience to reposition us for growth in the future. Bob added to the legacy of a great American company and planted the seeds for the Goodyear of the future. Everyone in the Goodyear family owes Bob Mercer a debt of gratitude and appreciation."Other activitiesMerce... Sep 7, 2020

Vick is a superintendent at a Richmond manufacturing plant and Christa is a work-at-home graphic designer and social media promoter.Christa is hearing from people that, because of the coronavirus pandemic, they want a peaceful, back-to-nature venue they can go to and not feel like they're putting their health at risk.In addition to flowers, the family produces honey for sale from their own bee hives. The farm's atmosphere also includes cats in the barn, dachshunds in the flower field, twinkle lights in the barn and flower field, and from time to time a food truck and live music.RELATED COVERAGE:?

Deaths for the week of Jan. 10, 2020 - The Jewish News of Northern California
New York to study to become a Cantor. Five years later, after graduation, he spent two years as Cantor in South Bend, Indiana. Then the family moved to Palo Alto, California, where he served as Cantor at Congregation Beth Jacob in Redwood City with Rabbi Teitelbaum for over three decades. He earned a master’s degree from Stanford and an honorary doctorate from Hebrew Union College.
In the ’90s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, but after two successful surgeries, he was able to live cancer-free for many years. Sadly, his voice was greatly impacted, and he was no longer able to eat normally. Yet, in retirement, he led services for Jewish holidays on cruises. He lost Eva to lung cancer shortly after their 50th anniversary. As part of his healing process, he published his autobiography, “Risen from the Ashes, Tales of a Musical Messenger,” which aptly describes his great courage and indomitable will to survive. He married Nina, who has been by his side for 20 years. In all his years, Judaism, service to others and education have been his guiding values.
Hans is preceded in death by his parents, Max and Ida Cohn, and his wife, Eva Cohn. He is survived by his second wife, Nina, and his daughters Becki Cohn-Vargas (Rito Vargas), Ruth Cohn (Michael Lewin) and Barbara Liepman (Michael Liepman), and six grandchildren.
Donations can be sent in his memory to the Hans Cohn Music Fund and CBJ Cares Committee by going to the Congregation Beth Jacob website donation page at bethjacobrwc.org/donate.
