An intellectually incisive and intelligent man, he made important contributions to our national defense working for IBM and Lockheed Martin as a defense contractor for over 40 years. He enjoyed traveling, whale watching, and spending time on the water. Those of us fortunate to have experienced his zest for life and generous heart will never forget the impact that he has had on our lives. Donations in his memory can be made to the American Heart Association.
