    John Nemeth - Michiana Chapter

    I Have received word that John Nemeth, a founding member of the Michiana Chapter has passed away. For details of the arrangements see http://www.zahoran.com/.

    John, I and a hand full of other locals founded the Michiana Chapter in 1969. The chapter hosted the 1970 National Meet and he was a tireless worker. The last time I attended the Michiana Chapter Spring meet in May 2017 he was still working as a volunteer.

    John never owned a show car and never won a trophy. He just loved the cars and the people who produced them. He grew up and still lived within walking distance of the plant and drove a Studebaker daily until the 1970"s.

    John was a member of the committee that administered the Studebaker Museum Restoration Fund.

    RIP John

    I also have known John since '72 when I joined the Michiana Chapter. We would visit Friday evenings at the Bendix Restaurant . He will be missed by all of us.

    What a pleasant personality John had; he always had a smile and a greeting for those around him.

    Our best to his family.

    I have known John for over 40 years and have always recognized and appreciated his continuous long time devotion to the success of SDC and the Restoration Fund. He will be sorely missed. Rest In Peace John.

    I never met John, but he sounds like we need more of his personality and dedication to SDC. Thoughts and prayers to his family. RIP John.
