PITTSBURGH Scrap industry
veteran Ted M. Luntz died Friday in Cleveland. He was 86.
Luntz served as president and
chief executive officer of the former Luntz Corp., Canton,

"My dad loved the business, was
good on the operations side, had loyal people and the business
grew a lot because the customers were successful," his son,
Brian, told AMM.
Luntz ran the family owned scrap
business, which started in 1898 as Canton Iron & Metal Co.
It later became known as Luntz Corp., which was sold to Philip
Environmental Inc. in 1997 and is now part of PSC Metals
After retiring from the scrap
arena in the 1990s, Luntz remained active as a consultant and
on the boards of many businesses, and also served on the boards
of Baldwin-Wallace College, Cathedral Latin School, College of
Jewish Studies and Hawken School.
A graduate of Yale University,
Luntz served in the U.S. Army and was an avid art collector,
musician, skier, tennis player and sailor.
He leaves a widow, Idarose; son
Brian, who is a scrap metal broker; daughters Jean Luntz,
Pamela Gleisser and Jill Calhoun; and seven grandchildren.
