Mike Fenton's Biography

The son of Frank Muhleman Fenton and Elizabeth Ripley Fenton, Mike was born July 8, 1945. Between 1963 and 1973, Mike attended the College of Wooster and Marietta College. He also served in the Navy from 1967 to 1971. He was stationed aboard an ocean-going tug home-ported in San Diego, and had two, ten- month Western Pacific tours.

Interspersed through that ten year period, Mike worked various jobs at Fenton; the earliest being shipping department stock boy at age 19. He finally came to Fenton to stay in 1973 as the Purchasing Manager. In 1985, he also assumed responsibility for safety at Fenton. As recognition for his work, in 1996 Mike was a nominee for West Virginia's "Safety Professional of the Year" award. In addition to being the Safety Director and Purchasing Manager, Mike also designs several of the metal assemblies used in Fenton lamps.

Mike and his wife, Kathy, have three daughters. His outside interests include photography, basketball, hiking and camping with his family. They have three grandchildren:  Isaiah, Mason and Ava.
