Passing of Detachment Life Member Milton Brynin

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Detachment Life Member Milton S. Brynin of Yonkers on February 5, 2018, at the Veteran's Home in Montrose, N.Y. He was 94. Affectionately known as "Milte" he was born in New Rochelle, N.Y. on October 25, 1923 to the late Alex and Jennie Brynin. In 1949, he married Doris (nee Mager), has two children, Howard of Peekskill, NY and Rona of Newport Beach, CA, and two grandchildren Max and Zeke Brynin. Glenn Brynin, his eldest son, died in June of 2017.

He attended school in New Rochelle, NY, and graduated from Albert Leonard High School in 1941, where he was an accomplished baseball player. After completing high school, he proudly enlisted in the military and was a veteran of WWII and the Korean War. His Army service during WWII was in the European Theatre where he endured battles in Northern France, Central Europe and Rhineland. A fiercely patriotic American, he re-enlisted in the Marine Corps, serving as sergeant during the Korean conflict.

Truly reflective of the "Greatest Generation", he put his military tenure behind him and embarked on a family life, working hard to provide for family and community. He was the proprietor of Craft Typographers of Mt. Vernon, NY, a small union shop that he operated for more than twenty years. Milt was an avid target shooter and reloader, and was the Past President of the Yonkers Pistol and Revolver Club. He continued to shoot and reload into his nineties and made many trips to Camp Perry in Ohio for national military matches. He was active in the Lions Club and was a 32nd degree Mason.

Milton will most be remembered for his quick wit and sense of humor. He loved to tell a joke and was a notorious ice cream eater. He enjoyed the outdoors and cherished his many dogs. Along with his children and grandchildren, he loved to explore a snowy trail or mountain road while driving his trusty jeep.

Interment is private. Contributions in memory of Milton Brynin may be made to the Yonkers Animal Shelter, www.newyonkersanimalshelter.org
