Albert F. Naderman
On Monday, February 4, 1946, Albert Ferdinand Naderman was born to George J. and Clara M. (Hessler) Naderman. Along with four sisters and three brothers, he was raised on the Naderman family farm near Millhousen, Indiana. He graduated from Jac-Cen-Del High School in 1964. He was an airplane mechanic in the Air Force Reserves from 1965-1967. He married Cheryl J. Holt on June 22, 1974 and together they raised five children. He often went home to help his Dad with farming. He was a mechanic at Westport Implement for 14 years. He thoroughly enjoyed his time there, as he made many good friends while fixing IH equipment. He loved International Harvester so much that he would often tell his children and grandchildren not to look at a John Deere or they might go blind. Although he was giving his famous crooked grin as he said this, his young children suspected it might be true.
He could not bear to see the land he loved sold to someone outside of the family, so he moved his wife and children onto the farm in 1981, when his own parents were no longer able to live there. His children grew up having the same family pride and work ethics instilled into them that only farm living can bring. Sadly, illness forced Albert and Cheryl to leave their beloved farm and move into Greensburg. No longer able be a farmer or mechanic, and having had to sell the farm, Albert was heartbroken. He passed away at his home on October 17, 2019.
Albert was not "just a farmer". He was astonishingly smart, and could weld anything. He was an incredible mechanic and a caring neighbor. With his own crops waiting for him in the fields, he would stop what he was doing to fix another farmer's combine, tractor or other equipment. He was a devoted father and husband. He literally worked his fingers to the bone for his family and his farm. He had a great sense of humor and could talk for hours with people he knew. He was an honest man. If he gave you his word, you could count on it. If he yelled at you, you were probably a salesman or telemarketer.
He is survived by his wife and children, Michelle J. (Fred) Miller, Kimberly M. (Michael) Shaw, Albert M. "Matthew" (Magnolia) Naderman, George A. (Courtney) Naderman, and Adam J. Naderman. He was so proud of his 11 grandchildren, and they all survive him. They include Jaden Matthew Miller, Justin Albert Miller, Sara Michelle Miller, Joshua Matthew Naderman, Cecilia Michelle Naderman, Albert Matthew Naderman Jr, Isaac Joseph Naderman, Carson Michael Shaw, Brady Dennis Shaw, Charlie Joy Naderman and Carter Rose Naderman. He was proceeded in death by his parents, a sister, Anne Cardinal, and a brother, John Naderman. He was the best man we ever knew and we will miss him forever.

Albert was a great man, in everything that he undertook. Whether welding, farming, gardening,or just being a friend. He was generous, kind and an honest soul. He will be missed by all that knew him.

I am one of the techs that took care of Albert during his Dialysis treatments. Over the years he has shared many stories of the farm, parents, siblings, children and grandchildren. When he spoke of his family it was with so much Love he would get choked up and sometimes cry. So, know in this time of grief that he loved you all with everything he had. My co workers and I will miss him dearly. He was the light of our day and a pleasure to care for.
My deepest sympathy
