Milt moved his family to CA in 1952, after graduating from Northeastern University in Boston, MA with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He felt this would provide better job opportunities in his area of expertise and a better life for his young family. Most of his professional career was spent working for Hughes Aircraft. He retired as an Asst. Lab Manager from Hughes Aircraft after 35 yrs.
He was an avid fly fisherman and after retiring, opened his own fly fishing shop. He was an expert in, and taught fly tying, fly casting and rod building. He was a member of the South Bay Fly Fishers and the Long Beach Fly Casting Club.
Milt loved fishing, camping, hiking and golfing-anything outdoors. Mammoth Lakes was one of his favorite fishing spots. He was a Boy Scout Leader for many years, leading the same troop from cub scouts through Eagle Scout. Milt was a real gentleman, kind & thoughtful. He will be sorely missed by family and friends alike.
