Julius Heisler, long-time resident of Paramus, NJ, and then Lake Worth, FL, passed away in West Palm Beach, FL on Tuesday. He was 91 years old.
He was a retired ink chemist, who worked for many years at Borden Chemical's Cilco Inks Division, and then for BASF Inmont, both in NJ. He also taught an annual course at the National Printing Ink Research Institute's summer technical program at Lehigh University.
After retiring and moving to Lake Worth, FL, he and his second wife patrolled as part of the Citizens Observer Patrol (COPs), a volunteer unit of the Palm Beach Sherriff's Office. He was a life-long fisherman, and was interested in nature and ecology long before it became popular.
He was preceded in death by his first wife, Doris Pauline Berkowitz, and his second wife, Laura June Kaufman, as well as his step-daughter Amy Kaufman. He is survived by his daughter Faith (Fred Fischer), his son Phillip (Tew), and his step-son Jonathan Kaufman (Jen), as well as his long-time friend Sandra Sternfeld, and a number of nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be held at Cedar Park / Beth El Cemetery in Paramus on Friday September 17.
Memorial donations may be made to Kol Dorot Reform Jewish Community, 660 Kinderkamack Rd, Oradell, NJ 07649.
