Milton Sommers

OBIT Milton Sommers onlineMilton Sommers passed on August 21, 2018 at Kensington Place in Redwood City. He was the cherished father of Lois Eckmann of Los Altos and the late Nathan Andrew Sommers and beloved father-in-law of Stuart F. Eckmann. Milton’s wife of over 60 years, Ethel L. Sommers predeceased him in 2010 as did his parents, Louis and Rebena Sommers. Milton was born March 26, 1924 in Baltimore, MD and, other than 2 years in England during WW2 and the 7 months in Redwood City, lived his entire life in Baltimore. He was a CPA who never practiced and real estate was his lifelong career. Milton retired in 2008 and turned his energies to playing bridge 4 days/week and participating regularly in tournaments in the North East US. He devoured books on bridge strategy. Our family would like to thank the individual caregivers and nursing staff at Kensington Place for the kind, gentle and protective way they looked out for Milton . They will be missed. Funeral services have already been held in Baltimore.
