Samuel L. Glazer

Cleveland (AP) – Samuel L. Glazer, co-owner of the company that revolutionized American mornings with the Mr. Coffee drip coffeemaker, has died at 89.

The funeral home that handled the arrangements said Glazer died of complications from leukemia March 12th at the Cleveland Clinic.  Services were held March 14th at Berkowitz-Kumin-Bookatz   Memorial Chapel in Cleveland Heights.

Glazer and his North American Systems business partner, Vincent Marotta Sr., hired engineers to develop an automatic drip coffeemaker for use at home.  The company introduced the Mr. Coffee coffeemaker in 1972 to compete with older percolator and less-tasty instant coffee methods.

Mr. Coffee became a huge success.
