As a student at Rocky River High School, Mr. Fenker knew that he wanted to become an engineer. He was curious about which program was considered the most difficult of the engineering disciplines, and eventually settled on electrical engineering, which would go on to become his focus. He enlisted in the United States Navy in 1944, serving as an aviation radioman gunner in the SB2C Dive Bomber during World War II, until his honorable discharge in 1946. He returned home and dove back into his studies, determined to realize his goal of becoming an electrical engineer.
As an undergraduate, Mr. Fenker studied at Cleveland State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering in 1955. He went on to Case Western Reserve University, where he earned a Master of Business Administration in 1964. As a registered professional engineer in the state of Ohio, Mr. Fenker started at Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company (CEIC), where he was entrusted to work with an important project involving a generator. He excelled, rising through the ranks and becoming vice president of administrative services at CEIC in 1977. In 1980, he became the vice president of power supply, while pursuing further education in the night hours.
In 1983, Mr. Fenker graduated from the advanced management program at Harvard Business School. He continued to work at CEIC, rising to the rank of senior vice president of engineering and operations in 1986. After serving for several years in his post, he accepted an offer from the Cleveland Health Education Museum, where he took on the role of president in 1988. He continues to serve the museum to this day. Additionally, Mr. Fenker is a member of the Cleveland Engineering Society, the National Society of Professional Engineers, the Clevelander Club, Omega Delta Epsilon, Sigma Chi, and United Way.
