HON. STEVE STIVERS of Ohio in the House of Representatives Friday, August 31, 2018 Mr. STIVERS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today on behalf of the people of Ohio's 15th Congressional District to celebrate the birthday of one of Fairfield County, Ohio's most distinguished citizens, a man who continues to devote his life to bringing smiles to others, Mr. Nelson Lee Trimmer. [[Page E1186]] Mr. Trimmer has been a fixture of our community for a century. From his lifelong membership with the Trinity Evangelical United Brethren Church and his established career as a mechanist and small business owner of Millersport Garage, he has built a wonderful and fulfilling life in Millersport surrounded by his wife, Pauline, two children, Nelson and Pamela, their ten grandchildren, seventeen great- grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren. Beyond his career as a machinist, Mr. Trimmer holds a deep appreciation for antique cars, which he is always willing to share with others, as evidenced by his founding of a Hot Rod Club for local youth and his continued involvement with the Lancaster Old Car Club. Perhaps what is most remarkable about Mr. Trimmer is his commitment to serving all those around him. As a member of the Army Air Corp, he served our nation in the Second World War, and as Mayor of Millersport, he spent his days diligently working to improve the lives of his neighbors. Moreover, there was never a need that went unnoticed by Mr. Trimmer. He dedicated his free time for over three decades as a volunteer member of the Millersport Fire Department and delighted local children as he and his beloved dog, Bootsy, drove the school bus. Mr. Trimmer is a ray of sunshine who brings smiles to everyone he meets. Millersport is undeniably a better place because of Mr. Nelson Lee Trimmer, and I encourage my colleagues to join me in wishing him a very happy 100th birthday as he celebrates on September 1, 2018.
