    Invacare founder Mal Mixon dies at 80

    Invacare's longtime leader, and a pioneer of his industry, died on Nov. 30.

    The company announced A. Malachi Mixon's death in a message on Facebook. Mixon was 80. He retired as CEO of Invacare in 2010, and as chairman of the board of directors in 2015 after a stroke.

    Invacare, an Elyria-based company, supplies more than 25,000 medical equipment providers in more than 80 countries.

    "Mal was a pioneer in our industry who helped so many people," Invacare Chairman Matt Monaghan said in the post. "He led in growth and innovation. He was a tireless advocate of the industry and supporter of providers everywhere. He was an especially strong ally of all those who rely on our products to ‘make life’s experiences possible.'"

    Mixon bought Invacare in 1979, and turned it into a global company. He also served on several boards across Northeast Ohio. He was a founding investor in MCM Capital Partners LP, a Cleveland leveraged buyout company. Mixon also started a fund to help minority businesses.

    He is survived by Barbara, his wife of 58 years; a son and daughter; and six grandchildren.
