9/12/08 Dear Alumni, Following is the obituary for Joseph Figlar, father of John Figlar '75, Joseph Figlar '77, and Edward Figlar '79. Please join with the St. Edward community to pray for the Figlar family. JOSEPH FIGLAR, age 79, passed away Sept 9, 2008. Beloved husband of the late Antoinette (nee Ciccia); dear father of Joanne Pamer, John Figlar (Denise), Joseph Figlar (Meg), Edward Figlar (Edwin), and Linda (Scott) Sojka; dear grandfather of Brandon, Jacquelyn and Travis Sojka and Jessica Pamer; dear brother of Michael (Laurel), Helen Lizanov (Nick), Geraldine Abbott (Norman), Margaret Augenstein (Ben) and brother in-law of Virginia (late John) and the late Anna Alzo (John). Mass of Christian Burial Monday, September 15 at St. Mark Church, 15800 Montrose at 10 A.M. Interment Lakeview Cemetery. Family will receive friends in the CORRIGAN-DICICCO FUNERAL HOME, 14768 LORAIN AVE., CLEVELAND SATURDAY 1-4 AND 6-9 PM AND SUNDAY 3-7 PM . Joseph Figlar 1929-2008 Joe Figlar, retired legendary coach-teacher at St. Edward High School who started the school's wrestling program that evolved into a state and national powerhouse, died Tuesday at Lakewood Hospital. He was 79. Figlar introduced wrestling as a varsity sport to the school in 1958, after three years as head varsity football coach. He coached the wrestling team for 16 years, with eight of his mat men placing in state championships, including four as state runners-up. Since then, the St. Edward wrestling teams have won 24 state championships and 11 national titles. During an interview for a book in 1999 celebrating the 50th anniversary of St. Edward High School, he said he had no idea the program would be so successful. "I started the wrestling program with the idea of getting kids in shape for football," he told the interviewer. "His first wrestling room was in the gym lobby," said Greg Urbas, St. Edward's freshmen football coach and current head wrestling coach. In 1961, Figlar founded the popular Catholic Invitational Tournament, the all-Catholic wrestling contest. Figlar became the high school's first lay athletic director in 1965. After a couple years, he left that post to get a master's degree in physical education from the University of Akron in 1971. He retired from coaching in 1974, but continued to teach until 1996. Colleagues estimated that Figlar taught and coached more than 9,000 students during his 43-year career at the school. He taught algebra, science, physical education and health. Figlar was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., but grew up in Duquesne, Pa., where he played high school football. In 1946, he started his two-year stint as a paratrooper in the 11th Airborne Division. He was stationed with the occupied forces in Japan. He went to Western Reserve University (now Case Western Reserve University) on a football scholarship. He played both as an offensive guard and a defensive linebacker. An injured knee prevented him from pursuing a professional football career, his family said. After graduating from Western Reserve in 1953, he joined St. Edward High School as an assistant football coach and assistant track coach. He was inducted into the Case Reserve Athletic Club Hall of Fame in 1993, and the St. Edward High School Hall of Fame in 1997. The longtime Lakewood resident was a charter member of the Ohio High School Athletic Association. Figlar's wife, Antoinette, died in 2005. The couple had been married 50 years.

Mother of Michael Ohliger '92; grandmother of Jack Ohliger '11 NANCY E. OHLIGER, Nov. 13, 1932 - Jan. 27, 2008. Liturgy celebrating the life of Nancy Ohliger will be officiated by Fr. James R. Becherer, Saturday, July 26, 1 p.m. at St. Angela's Church, 20970 Lorain Rd., Fairview Park, OH 44126. Reception to follow at Manhattan Deli, 24180 Lorain Rd., N. Olmsted, OH. She is survived by her loving family. Published in The Plain Dealer from 7/24/2008 - 7/25/2008 NANCY ELLEN PARKER OHLIGER. Born November 13, 1932 - Died January 27, 2008. She smiled when anyone entered a room and welcomed everyone into her home, whether in Fort Myers Beach or Cleveland. It was a beautiful sunny day in Cleveland, Ohio that Sunday in November 1932 when Nancy Ellen Parker was born, the only child of Frank and Rose (Gallagher) Parker. Her parents knew that she would be destined for many great roles in life when she first appeared as the leading character in her high school production of Song of Bernadette under the watchful direction of Holy Humility of Mary Sister Bernadette Vetter. After Lourdes High School, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Ursuline College. She was introduced to James E. Ohliger and commencing on September 3, 1955, she would spend the next 52 years making a home with him and their seven children. Her heart beat a little faster when he entered the room and saddened when he left. He lovingly walked with her side by side each step of the way during the long march through her last illness. And so it was, when she came to the end of her journey on Sunday morning, January 27, 2008. Nancy Ohliger taught us all that the family came first. Her occupation was truly that of a homemaker. Making a happy home was all she ever wanted to do. And she did it with a smile, a song, and cheer in her heart and in her voice. Her legacy is the strength, kindness, love and generosity that live on in her seven children and twenty-three grandchildren. In addition to her husband James, her joy for life survive in her daughters Mary Beth (Bill) Mitterko, Megan (Mike) O'Neill, Molly (Kevin) Lavelle, and Rosemarie (Tom) Osowik, and sons Mike, James Jr. (Wendy), and Thomas (Cindy). Nancy's faith in Christ never wavered and for those who wish to share in a salutation to her life, there will be a Mass of the Christian Burial at the Church of the Ascension, 6025 Estero Boulevard, Fort Myers Beach, Florida 33931, this Friday, February 1 at 1:30 P.M. Remembrances may be made to the Church of the Ascension. A Spring memorial will be planned for the Cleveland area. And so we raise a toast to you, Nancy Ellen Parker Ohliger. A job well done.

Martin Joseph Held, a.k.a. 'Uncle Marty', age 68, died on May 24th, 2008 after a long illness. He was born in Toledo, Ohio and grew up in Lakewood, Ohio where he graduated from St. Edward High School in 1958. In 1962, he graduated from the University of Dayton with a Degree in Industrial Engineering . Uncle Marty began his business career and life in the early 1960s in the San Francisco Bay Area taking his first job at the St. Francis Hotel to establish the hotels first sales department. After a brief stint with brokerage firm Dean Witter & Associates, he was hired by American Express in 1971 as the youngest vice president in the history of the company. While at American Express, he developed the first electronic automated reservation system for the hotel/travel industry. In 1974 with the backing of American Express, Uncle Marty designed for the U.S. Department of Interior the nation's first National Park Campsite reservation program. In the late 1970s Uncle Marty was stricken with cancer and after several surgeries followed by intense chemo and radiation therapy he rebounded to continue his business endeavors. He established M.J. Held & Associates as a registered SEC broker and worked in partnership with Phoenix Leasing Corp. selling their product lines. In the early 1990s, he separated from his duties with Phoenix Leasing due to a neuromuscular degenerative disorder that left him all but wheelchair bound thus halting his demanding travel schedule. For years to come, Uncle Marty spent considerable time in physical and personal development. When able, he attended seminars to learn more about home based businesses, personal emotional/psychological development, and physical therapy. Basically, Uncle Marty spent the rest of his life facing health issues head on with a great will to live. He enjoyed the company of many "close life long" friends.

HELEN HUDAK (nee Metarko) went to the Lord on March 12, 2008 peacefully with her family at her side. Born in Taylor, PA on November 12, 1922, daughter of the late John and Anna Metarko. On January 25, 1947 she married Andrew Hudak, a blessed union which lasted for 57 years until his passing in 2004. Helen was one with the Lord and the Blessed Virgin. She lived life as she prayed, with great intensity. She was a devoted mother and grandmother who left a legacy of her love, wisdom and faith which will never be forgotten. She had a wondrous love of nature, not only for what it brought to her table from her garden, but also God's creation of beautiful flowers and animals.

JOHN C. WASMER JR., or Jack, as he was known to his family and friends, was born in 1923 in Cleveland, OH. He graduated from St. Ignatius High School and attended John Carroll University beginning in 1941. He joined the Navy in 1943 where he served as a gunnery officer aboard the USS Concord in WWII. His ship was part of the 9th Fleet based in Attu, which is part of the Aleutian Islands in the North Pacific. Following the war, Jack continued in the Naval Reserves and also began working at Lake Erie Screw Corporation in Cleveland. During his 43 year career with Lake Erie Screw Corporation, he rose through the ranks and ended his career there as CEO and Chairman. During this time Lake Erie Screw Corp. grew to become the premier domestic fastener manufacturer in the country. Jack also served as Chairman of the Board of Lakewood Hospital and later as President of the Foundation of Lakewood Hospital. Following his retirement, Jack spent the next 18 years with his family, growing and selling Christmas trees on Chippewa Farms in Lodi, OH. He was also an active supporter of John Carroll University serving on the Board of Directors for 16 years and on the Board of Regents for three years. He received the Alumni Medal in 1984 for all his years of community service. He, along with his wife Mary, was also an avid supporter of Ursuline College in Ohio where both received honorary doctorates in 2002. Both Mary and Jack remained deeply involved in various philanthropic activities in Cleveland. A part-time Florida resident for many years, the Wasmers moved to Naples full-time in 1986 where Jack founded Professional Givers Anonymous (PGA) in 1990. PGA is an organization of very dedicated men and women, serving the poor of Collier County through programs providing education, food, clothing, and shelter. He was a strong supporter of St. Ann's Parish and School in Naples. He thoroughly enjoyed the performances of the St. Ann's choir and band. He worked tirelessly as an advocate for Catholic education during his lifetime.
