Herbert Dwight Stair, age 88, of Wadsworth, was called Home to meet his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, unexpectedly on Monday, October 31, 2022 at Akron City Hospital following complications from heart surgery. He was born in Wayne County, OH on October 28, 1934 to the late Herbert J. and Viola J. Stair. On May 12, 1956, he married Donna Jean Martin, who preceded him in death on January 29, 2022.

After graduation from Northwestern High School, he farmed with his father prior to joining the Army. Following his honorable discharge, he attended Ashland College earning his bachelor’s degree in accounting. He worked at the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company in the Finance and Accounting areas for over 30 years. Upon retirement, he served 10 years as the business administrator for Grace Church of Norton where he and Donna were long-standing members. He also served in the roles of elder and adult Sunday School teacher. His faith in Jesus Christ and family were his life’s priorities.
