In Memoriam: Federal Industries’ John Minahan
John Minahan, who retired last December as president of Federal Industries, died June 10. He was 63.
Minahan played a major role in growing the Belleville, Wis., maker of merchandising display cases. He served the nearly century-old company for more than 32 years, starting in the sales department and rising to its presidency. Along the way, Minahan established many long-term relationships with the people he worked with in the industry.
He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Lisa; daughter Mary and son Daniel; three grandchildren; and brothers Daniel and Michael. His brother Matthew passed away shortly after him on Saturday.
