      Obituary of Martin Werner Brossman II

      Martin W. Brossman, II, 89, of Washington, DC, died Saturday, December 15, 2012 of natural causes in his residence. He was the husband of Julia (McLean) Brossman. Born in 1923, in Allentown, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Dr. Martin W. Brossman and S. Eleanor (Ruth) Brossman. A graduate of Allentown High School, he served in the US Army during WWII.

      Martin received a B.S. in Engineering from Lehigh University, and an M.S. in Engineering Physics from Penn State University, with further graduate work in Mathematics, Management and Operations Research. He was a registered Professional Engineer, and a member of The International Management and Operations Research Society.

      His career began as Engineering Physicist with The Naval Research Laboratory, where his friend and co-worker, Ed McLean, introduced him to his sister, Julia, who became his wife of 55 years. They loved to travel the world together and visited every continent.

      Martin’s career included Division Chief with Research Analysis Corporation (RAC) where he invented and patented two testing and recording devices; Principal with Planning Research Corporation (PRC); Vice President with H. B. Maynard and Company; Adjunct Professor at American University; and Physical Science Administrator with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), receiving a series of Manager of the Year Awards, as well as Agency medals and citations. One of his greatest joys was working with Native American tribes in protecting their water resources.

      Martin had a strong spirit that kept him cheerful despite many physical hardships, with his love of people and compassion ever present. While not working and especially during his retirement, Martin loved to toil in his garden.

      In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son, Martin W. Brossman, III, Raleigh, NC, and one brother William F. Brossman, Sr., Allentown. He was predeceased by his sister, Ruth W. Dent.
