Benjamin C. Alm Jr. Obit

Westinghouse engineer

Benjamin Carlyle Alm Jr., a retired senior engineer for the Westinghouse Electric Corp.'s Aerospace Division, died Tuesday of cancer at the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis. He was 65.

The native of Omaha, Neb., graduated in 1951 from the University of Colorado with a degree in engineering physics. Recruited by Westinghouse while in college, he joined the firm as a junior engineer at its plant near Baltimore-Washington International Airport, working on advanced radar guidance systems.

He served in the Navy during World War II.

He had held a private pilot's license since the late 1960s.

He was a member of the Annapolis Council 1384 of the Knights of Columbus, St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, Alcoholics Anonymous, the Anne Arundel Fish and Game Association, the Gem Cutters Guild and the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.

He and his wife of 47 years, the former Shirley M. Davidson, moved to Arnold in 1961 after having lived in Severna Park for about 10 years.

A Mass of Christian burial for Mr. Alm was to be offered at 10 a.m. today at St. John the Evangelist church, Ritchie Highway and Cyprus Creek Road in Severna Park.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters, April T. Alm of Dundalk and Jennie C. Burgdorf of Berlin, Germany, and his mother, Tess M. Holt of Edgewater.

The family suggested memorial donations to the American Cancer Society or the Anne Arundel Medical Center Hospice.
