HOWARD NEUSTADT 1918 - 2007
Howard Neustadt passed away on June 3, 2007, at the age of 88. He devoted his life to directing Neuco, Inc. into what it has become today, the leading master distributor of HVACR controls. Proudly applying a strong-minded work ethic and providing service levels beyond expectations, that's how Howard carried forth with what has been referred to as 'the Neustadt Tradition' which began 117 years ago on the Westside of Chicago by his father, John Neustadt, at the company's humble beginnings known as Neustadt Coal, Hay & Grain. Howard will be remembered not only as an undeniable leader in this industry but also as a remarkable family man. He is survived by 8 children, 14 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Gertrude, and his nephew, Joseph Neustadt, a former Neuco owner. Neuco, Inc. will prevail under the current ownership of two of Howard's sons, Paul and Jon Neustadt.
