Outstanding Member Award for 2010

Michael RehfusA lifelong resident of Canton, Michael J. Rehfus graduated from Canton McKinley High School in 1978, and he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from The University of Akron in 1983. He earned his classification as a registered professional engineer in 1988 and as a registered professional surveyor in 1991. While in college, he worked as a co-op student for the Ohio Department of Transportation.

In March 1984, he began to work for the Stark County Engineer’s office. He became the County Bridge Engineer in 1990, the Chief Deputy Engineer in October 1998, and the Stark County Engineer in January 2003. He was elected to serve as the Stark County Engineer in November 2004 and November 2008.

During his service as the Stark County Engineer, which he thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated, he oversaw many visible projects, including capital improvements to Stark County’s roadways and bridges. One such visible project is the Hall of Fame bridge over I-77, which Mike had an integral part in planning. He was named the 1994 Young Engineer for Canton Regional Society of Professional Engineers (CRSPE), was President and long time Board Member of the local American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) section, was Chairman of District 19 of the Ohio Public Works Commission, served as Board Member of the Stark County Transportation Improvement District, was on the Canton Joint Engineering Council (CJEC), and served as Committee Chairman for the County Engineers Association of Ohio (CEAO). He was a constant proponent of the highway industry through these various organizations and through his commitment to Stark County’s infrastructure.

Sadly, Mike passed away on November 10, 2009 at age 49, after a substantial battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife of 23 ½ years, Debbie, and their five children, Jenny, Katie, Mike Jr., Matt, and Krissy. He was much beloved by all who were fortunate enough to know him and will be dearly missed.
