— In Memory of —

This fountain is dedicated to Otto J. Maha and his contributions to fluid power technology.

Otto received his education through night classes at the Lewis Institute of Technology, now known as the Illinois Institute of Technology. In 1928, at the age of 21, Otto began his fifty year tenure at the Parker Hannefin Corporation. During the early years of the fluid power industry, Otto was instrumental in developing fluid power standards and held seats on a variety of fluid technology based committees. He also served on the 1967 delegation on Industrial Standards and Norms to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic[s]. A world-renowned fluid power engineer, Otto Maha's achievements are honored at the Fluid Power Hall of Fame at the Milwaukee School of Engineering in Wisconsin. His legacy in the industry lives on through numerous monetary contributions to educational institutions that support the teaching of fluid power technology in their engineering departments. A lifelong resident of West Dundee, Otto was an avid walker and could be seen strolling through his neighborhood every day. His generous contribution helped make the West Dundee Riverwalk a community treasure for all to enjoy.
