Our Euclid Schools mourn the recent loss of two of our greatest supporters, Joseph “Joe” Mayer and Charles “Chuck” Hill. Both men made significant impact on their community and they will be sincerely missed.
Most recently, Joe Mayer was the Vice President and Executive Director of the Euclid Public Schools Alumni Association and President of the Euclid Schools Foundation. Joe was a teacher and administrator in the Euclid Schools for many years. He was also very active in the American Legion, Baldwin-Wallace University, the Shore Cultural Centre, Kiwanis International, the East Shore Church and the Euclid Symphony Orchestra.
A Memorial Service is planned for Joe Mayer on Saturday, February 24, 2018, at 11:00 AM at the East Shore Church United Methodist, 23002 Lakeshore Blvd, Euclid, OH 44117 (across from Sims Park). Lunch will be served following the service.
Chuck Hill, a lifelong Euclid resident, was president of Hillwood Manufacturing Co. until his retirement in 1995. He was Chairman of the Euclid Joint Veterans Council, organizing the Memorial Day Parade and Services, and a member of American Legion Post 343 in Euclid. He was a high school football official for 55 years. Chuck was instrumental in Euclid Public Schools serving on the Alumni Association, Sports Hall of Fame and Distinguished Achievement Hall of Fame. He was affectionately known as “Mr. Euclid.” Chuck was born October 5, 1928, and passed away August 16, 2017, at the age of 88.
