Niles, Donald E. Of Oconomowoc, January 25, 2010. Age 87. He married Loella Frederick and worked for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics or NACA-America's top aircraft research organization, and the precursor to NASA. He also worked as a research engineer for Oil Gear, Caterpillar, and finally Outboard Marine Corporation, from which he retired as senior research engineer in 1988.
