He served as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Air Forces.

He was a founding member of what was known as the YM-YWHA in West Orange.

He offered his expertise to other institutions and was past president of the Falls Country Club and of his residential condominium.

He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Shirley; his daughter, Susan Denholtz of Florham Park; two sons, Steven (Lisa) of Oceanport and Stewart of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.; a sister, Rhoda Denholtz of Short Hills; five grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
