Former Cumberland mayor, Kelly-Springfield CEO Lee Fiedler dies at 79

CUMBERLAND — Lee N. Fiedler, a former Cumberland mayor and CEO of the Kelly-Springfield Tire Co., died Wednesday surrounded by family in Stow, Ohio. He was 79.

Fiedler came to Cumberland in 1991 from Akron, Ohio, the site of the corporate headquarters of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., which owns Kelly-Springfield. He rose to the rank of CEO at Kelly and retired in 1999 after 35 years of service. Shortly after retiring, he was elected Cumberland’s mayor, and served from 2000 to 2010.

“It’s sad to hear of his passing … far too soon,” said Jeff Rhodes, former city administrator.
