Albert F. Naderman, 73

first_imgOn Monday, February 4, 1946, Albert Ferdinand Naderman was born to George J. and Clara M. (Hessler) Naderman. Along with four sisters and three brothers, he was raised on the Naderman family farm near Millhousen, Indiana. He graduated from Jac-Cen-Del High School in 1964. He was an airplane mechanic in the Air Force Reserves from 1965-1967. He married Cheryl J. Holt on June 22, 1974 and together they raised five children. He often went home to help his Dad with farming. He was a mechanic at Westport Implement for 14 years. He thoroughly enjoyed his time there, as he made many good friends while fixing IH equipment. He loved International Harvester so much that he would often tell his children and grandchildren not to look at a John Deere or they might go blind. Although he was giving his famous crooked grin as he said this, his young children suspected it might be true.  He could not bear to see the land he loved sold to someone outside of the family, so he moved his wife and children onto the farm in 1981, when his own parents were no longer able to live there. His children grew up having the same family pride and work ethics instilled into them that only farm living can bring. Sadly, illness forced Albert and Cheryl to leave their beloved farm and move into Greensburg. No longer able be a farmer or mechanic, and having had to sell the farm, Albert was heartbroken. He passed away at his home on October 17, 2019.  Albert was not “just a farmer”. He was astonishingly smart, and could weld anything. He was an incredible mechanic and a caring neighbor. With his own crops waiting for him in the fields, he would stop what he was doing to fix another farmer’s combine, tractor or other equipment. He was a devoted father and husband. He literally worked his fingers to the bone for his family and his farm. He had a great sense of humor and could talk for hours with people he knew. He was an honest man. If he gave you his word, you could count on it. If he yelled at you, you were probably a salesman or telemarketer.  He is survived by his wife and children, Michelle J. (Fred) Miller, Kimberly M. (Michael) Shaw, Albert M. “Matthew” (Magnolia) Naderman, George A. (Courtney) Naderman, and Adam J. Naderman. He was so proud of his 11 grandchildren, and they all survive him. They include Jaden Matthew Miller, Justin Albert Miller, Sara Michelle Miller, Joshua Matthew Naderman, Cecilia Michelle Naderman, Albert Matthew Naderman Jr, Isaac Joseph Naderman, Carson Michael Shaw, Brady Dennis Shaw, Charley Joy Naderman and Carter Rose Naderman. He was proceeded in death by his parents, a sister, Anne Cardinal, and a brother, John Naderman. He was the best man we ever knew and we will miss him forever.   A rosary service will start at 3:30 pm on Tuesday, October 22nd followed by visitation until 8 pm at Porter-Oliger-Pearson Funeral Home.  Visitation will also be held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church on Wednesday, October 23rd from 10-11 am followed by a Funeral Mass at 11:00 am with Rev. John Meyer officiating.  Burial will follow at Immaculate Conception Catholic Cemetery.  Online condolences can be made at www.popfuneralhome.comlast_img read more

USC Football will likely land impressive transfer class

first_img“After a lot of thinking and talking with my family, I’ve decided to leave UT and return home,” McCoy wrote on May 31.  The NCAA requires transfers to sit for a year before they can become eligible. Though both McCoy and Steele have appealed this, their eligibility in 2019 remains up in the air.  After standing out in Longhorns’ spring camp, McCoy returned home for his high school graduation and tweeted about his intention to leave Texas. Although McCoy and Steele’s decisions have garnered the most attention, redshirt junior wide receiver Velus Jones Jr.’s decision not to leave the program may prove to be the most impactful for the Trojans heading into the upcoming season.  The likely additions of both McCoy and Steele represent major boosts for the Trojans heading into summer camp. McCoy is viewed by many as a generational talent. He was the No. 1 athlete and No. 9 overall prospect, per 247Sports’ 2019 composite rankings. The pass-catcher boasts an imposing 6-foot-2-inch, 205-pound frame and wowed during practices in Austin with his speed and physicality.   Days later, a source close to McCoy’s family told the Los Angeles Times that McCoy intended to transfer back to USC because of a case of homesickness during his spring semester at Texas.  After a disappointing football season in which USC missed a bowl game, contemplated firing head coach Clay Helton, and retained new offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury for all of a month, Trojan football finally appears to be getting back on track.  On June 5, McCoy retweeted an image posted by incoming freshman wide receiver Kyle Ford of the two wearing USC football uniforms, further proving his recruitment to the Trojan roster. “It’s looking like that’s going to happen,” Norman Steele told the Times last week. “I don’t see anything else happening.” News of McCoy’s decision to transfer arrived in late May. A product of Mater Dei High School, McCoy first committed to the Trojans in January but left to play for the Texas Longhorns after short-lived USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury was hired by the Arizona Cardinals.  On the heels of McCoy’s announcement, the Los Angeles Times reported that Chris Steele intended to back out of his commitment to the Oregon Ducks and that Steele’s father had indicated that his son would be enrolling at USC. Photo from Florida Gators / TFB Texascenter_img Steele’s combination of ball skills and speed could provide the Trojans with welcomed support and fill some of the void left by the departure of former USC starting cornerbacks Iman Marshall and Isaiah Langley.  As the Trojans transition to new offensive coordinator Graham Harrell’s “air raid” offense, Jones’ return coupled with McCoy’s arrival may underpin what may be one of college football’s deepest position groups heading into the 2019 season. USC already appears to be set at the wide receiver position with returning starters Michael Pittman Jr., Tyler Vaughns and Amon-Ra St. Brown. Last season the trio racked up 159 receptions for 2,182 yards and 15 touchdowns. Jones can be utilized in the slot, given what appears to be an embarrassment of riches at the receiver position for USC. Steele’s father has indicated that Steele’s commitment to Oregon was largely due to USC’s lack of scholarship spots at the time. Now that space has become available, it appears Steele, who attended high school only 30 minutes away from USC, will be returning home to wear cardinal and gold. Multiple sources are confirming that USC will welcome former 5-star recruit wide receiver Bru McCoy and 4-star cornerback Chris Steele this coming fall. The team hopes to right the ship for a Trojan recruiting class that finished outside the top ten for only the fourth time in 20 years.  Jones entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal in March and reportedly considered following former USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin to Tennessee. On June 3, however, Jones announced his intention to remain a Trojan. Steele participated in spring practice and took classes in Gainesville before announcing that he would enter the NCAA transfer portal on May 9. Days later, he signed with the  Oregon Ducks.  Jones, however, is a sure bet to contribute to the Trojans’ 2019 campaign. He saw significant time as both a receiver and a kick returner in 2018 and appeared in all 12 games. Over the season, Jones had 24 receptions for 266 yards and one touchdown over 21 kickoff returns. This announcement comes after a long recruiting saga for Steele, who first committed to the Trojans in July 2018. He backed out months later and then signed a letter of intent with the Florida Gators.  On the other side of the ball, Steele could reinforce a defensive backfield in need of depth following the departure of three defensive backs to the NFL. last_img read more
