Universal Technical Institute Founder Dies At 87

Today, UTI is known as the nation's leading provider of post-secondary education for students seeking careers as professional automotive, diesel, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians. The company has 11 campuses across the country, with an average undergraduate enrollment of more than 16,000 students.

In 1991, Sweet retired from UTI, but continued to remain close to the organization. In his later years, Sweet was actively involved with the UTI Foundation, which provides scholarships and assistance to UTI students. In 2010, the 45th anniversary of UTI, the UTI Foundation established a scholarship in his name to recognize his lifetime achievement, leadership and vision.

Sweet leaves behind his wife Bobbie Sweet, children; Mitchell (Lydia) Sweet, Cheryl Sweet, Pauline Sweet Walker, Suzanne (Bill) Reddy, Leslie (Bob) Fleischer, Meg (David) Miller, Howard (Patty) Fischer, Edward (Laurie) Kohn, Julie ( Barbara Halpern) Kohn, Ted (Kelly) Kohn, and grandchildren; Stephan (Annie) Sweet, Jennifer Sweet, Aaron (Myra) Reddy, Jamie Reddy, Kevin Reddy, Cory Mitchell, Evan Mitchell, Noah Mitchell, Zach Miller, Mara Miller, Paul Hernandez, Tracy Hernandez, Ryan Hernandez, Patrick Hernandez, Abigail Kohn, Casey Kohn, Holly Kohn, and Evan Kohn. Memorial services were held today at Sinai Mortuary, 4538 North 16th St., Phoenix, Ariz.



He is remembered by all for his fairness, candor, and commitment to providing quality education for deserving students.
