While the name may not ring a bell, Dr. George Sperti's inventions have undoubtedly touched the lives of millions. From your morning routine of pouring milk on cereal to enjoying orange juice from frozen concentrate, or finding relief from ailments with products like Aspercreme, the famed inventor's genius has quietly revolutionized everyday experiences.

 

In a career spanning six decades, Dr. Sperti amassed over 120 patents. Born in Covington, but residing on his farm in Burlington, KY,  his legacy endures not only in his groundbreaking inventions but also in the memories of those who knew him as a compassionate individual with a soft spot for his family and children whom he encountered.
