Wapakoneta lost one of its favorite sons Wednesday when Walter Stinebaugh, 88, died at Wapakoneta Manor surrounded by his family.
After marrying his wife, Jean, in 1942, the couple were both working full-time at the Lima Locomotive Works when Stinebaugh’s dream of going into carpentry began to come to fruition.
“It started out simply as remodeling,” said Barb Haehn, one of Stinebaugh’s three children. “Over the next couple of years, it just kind of evolved.”
The couple’s other children are Tina Helmstetter and Ralph Stinebaugh.

Preparing for the fair

It’s not just the larger livestock that have a potent odor, a first-year 4-Her taking a duck project says one of the things he learned about them was that they stink.
