Max Szklarczyk, 88, of Denville died Jan. 16, 2014. Born in Slomliki, Poland, he immigrated to the United States as a young man after surviving the Holocaust, where he lost his brother David.
Mr. Szklarczyk worked as an engineer at Bell Labs in Whippany, where he worked on the successful “Anti-Missile” missile project (forerunner to the Patriot Missile).
After attaining his master’s degree in engineering from the University of Nebraska, he authored a book, Materials Handling, which referred to the handling of defense industry-related materials.
He is survived by his wife of over 55 years, Lillian (Greenberger); two sisters, Rina Knobler and Liora Belkind; a cousin, Alon Prywes; and a daughter-like friend, Kerri Yezuita.
Services were held Jan. 19 with arrangements by J.L. Apter Memorial Chapels of Dover.
