PHOTOS: Gougler Plant Disappears a Little More Everyday

Demolition progressing on massive, vacant Lake Street complex

Contact Marsh Lane, 562 E. Riddle Ave. Rav 330-297-1814. He was married to Charlie Gougler's granddaughter, Judy Morris. Judy passed away about a year ago. Marsh, the son of former RC staff writer, Dottie Lane, worked for Gouglers many years. Judy was the stepdaughter of former Gougler president, Webb Morris. I'm sure he would have many interesting things to share.
