Knakkergaard, Svend Federick*  
Svend Frederick Knakkergaard passed away suddenly Saturday afternoon, Feb. 14, 2015, at Ave Care, Newton, at the age of 93. Svend Knakkergaard was born in Nykobing Mors, Copenhagen, Denmark, on June 16, 1921. His parents were Hjalmar Christian and Amalie Elinor M. Ornshoj. He emigrated to the United States at 19 months of age and grew up in East Rockaway, N.Y. As a young boy, Svend worked hard for menial wages to help support his struggling family during the Depression. In 1943, Mr. Knakkergaard enlisted with the Army Air Corps. He then honorably served on the Pacific Front as Radar Navigator and B-29 Bombardier in the 430th Bomb Squadron, 502nd Bomb Squadron and the 315th Bomb Wing. He was trained in the use of the bomb sight, instrument navigation and releasing bombs using radar. Of special interest is that Svend Knakkergaard was the radar navigator on the B-29 Super Fortress during a mercy mission that dropped life-saving supplies to 700 starving POWs in Naetsu, Japan. Notably among them to receive the rations with open arms was the late Louis Zamperinni, whose amazing life was recently re-counted in the blockbuster movie "Unbroken." Mr. Knakkergaard went on to pursue his education, attending Syracuse University, graduating with a masters degree in electrical engineering. From there, he prospered in a long career with a highly-esteemed employer at the time, Bell Laboratories, headquartered in Whippany. His career with Bell Labs took him, along with his wife and three children, to the remote island of Kwajalein in the South Pacific where Svend was instrumental in testing, inspecting and reporting of the electrical systems of intercontinental anti-ballistic missile systems known as Nike Zeus, Ajax, Sentinel and Safeguard. He returned to the States in 1967, settling in Parsippany. Svend Knakkergaard is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Dalia DeBoneventura, and three natural children, Paul Knakkergaard, of Branchville, Karen Spread, of Chicago, and Richard Knakkergaard, of North Carolina. Svend is also survived by his step-children, Kathy Sauer, of Manchester, Maureen Hild, of North Carolina, Robert Newman, of Bridgewater, and Richard Newman of Bethlehem, Pa.; and 16 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Svend was preceded in death by his first wife, Marie Russin, of Whippany; his stepson, Billy Newman, of California; his sister, Mary Lisa; and his brother, Niels Knakkergaard. Mr. Knakkergaard was a devoted and loyal family man. He was a simple and humble man of integrity, never boasting of his life's accomplishments and milestones. In his final years, afflicted with dementia, which is said to provide a window into the heart of a man, Svend was consistently described by his family and his caregivers as one of the sweetest, kindest gentleman they had ever known. Svend Knakkergaard wished to donate his earthly remains to the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School for studies in the sciences. A memorial service has been planned to celebrate Svend's life on Sunday afternoon, March 8, 3:00 p.m., at the Sparta Evangelical Free Church, Houses Corner Road, Sparta.

Mortimer, Charles G. "Duke"*  
MONTAGUE - Owner of Westfall Farm and president of Westfall Productions Inc., retired film and television director/producer Charles G. "Duke" Mortimer, Jr., 88, passed away peacefully on Monday, Feb. 9, 2015. Born on Feb. 12, 1926 in Glen Ridge, Duke graduated from Glen Ridge High School in 1944 and entered the United States Merchant Marine Academy. As a midshipman in World War II, Duke served in the Atlantic theatre, transporting troops and critical supplies. Following his military service, Duke graduated from Hamilton College in 1949 and began a career in the emerging field of broadcast television. After working as both a director and producer at CBS and, later, ABC, Duke began a 15-year career with the Wiliam Esty Company in 1957. Rising to senior vice president in charge of television, Duke became one of the foremost network television buyers with a series of hit shows including "The Beverly Hillbillies," "Get Smart," and "Bonanza." Duke later founded his own company, Westfall Productions, and produced the motion picture, "From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler," starring Ingrid Bergman. The movie debuted at Radio City Music Hall in 1973. His other creative successes include the television movies "Death Be Not Proud," "The Last Giraffe," and the classic "Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas" in collaboration with Jim Henson. Duke matched his professional success with community enrichment, spending many years directing plays for the Junior Wing of the Montclair Dramatic Club and became a dramatic arts teacher at the Morristown-Beard School and Gill-St. Bernard's School in Gladstone. At Westfall Farm, he built a barn theatre and directed the Mortimer Dramatic Arts Workshop, Scholarship, and Repertory Company. He was also president of the Mortimer Foundation and Scholarship program for college and secondary school students. Duke possessed immense charisma, leadership and artistic talent. Yet, the starring role of his lifetime was that of the loving husband, devoted father, and doting grandfather. He will be missed profoundly by all who knew him and remain always and forever in our hearts. Duke passed away on the 18th anniversary of the death of his loving wife of 50 years, Elisabeth "Bette" Smith Mortimer. He is also predeceased by his brother, John Mortimer, and his sister, Mary Bosley. Surviving are his four children and spouses, Nancy and Peter Wilson, Bonnie and Douglas Baird, Charles and Lynne Mortimer, and Loren and Georgene Mortimer; as well as his seven grandchildren, Brian Wilson and wife, Marisa, Loren Michael Mortimer, Nicole Mortimer, Charles (Charlie) Mortimer, Jameson Mortimer, Courtney Baird, and Austin Baird. In addition, surviving are his brother, Lee Mortimer, nephews, including Charles Elder, nieces, cousins, and special caregivers. A memorial service will take place at the Minisink Reformed Church, 346 River Road, Montague, on March 21, 2015, at 11:30 a.m. Letters of condolence may be sent to Westfall Farm, c/o Harry Schmitz, 141 Clove Road, Montague, 07837. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Montague Volunteer Fire Dept. at 28 Old Sunderland Road, Montague, and the Blue Ridge Rescue Squad at 277 Clove Road, Montague.
