Timken Co. retiree beaten in car gets boost from Ohio labor unions


CANTON TWP. – A retired Timken Co. worker assaulted in a violent road rage confrontation has received a special gift from current and retired union leaders across Ohio.

Ralph White, 85, retired from Timken Co. after more than 30 years and was an active member of the steelworkers union at Golden Lodge USW Local No.1123.

On Feb. 27, White was involved in a two-car collision with Travonce Backie, 32, in the 2600 block of Eighth Street. Backie fled but not before assaulting White to the point of hospitalization, according to Canton police.

White received stitches, multiple lacerations to his face and bleeding on the brain.  “If it had to happen, I’m glad it happened to me and not someone else,” White said.

After four months in hospice, White is now home, under the watchful eyes of his children, grandchildren and wife of 66 years, Mabel, 83.
