Nandor L. Darvas Jr., age 67 formerly of Toledo, died Sunday, September 27, 2015, in Trumbull Memorial Hospital in Warren, Ohio. He was born April 1, 1948, to Nandor L. and Maria (Josezf) Darvas in Hungary. In 1957 Nandor and his parents left their home in Hungary, taking what they could carry, and often traveling at night on foot, to escape Hungary at the time of the Revolution. Nandor and his family relocated to Toledo, Ohio where he had to learn a new language and soon became U.S. citizens.

Returning home to Toledo, Nandor enrolled at the University of Toledo, earning both a Bachelor's degree in Engineering and a Master's degree in Business Administration. He worked in the Engineering Departments of local Toledo manufacturing facilities including Ransom & Randolph, Dura, Peters Stamping, and Champion Spark Plug. He later retired from Champion due to health reasons. Nandor was an avid golfer, often traveling to Myrtle Beach where his goal was to play all the courses in the area.
