Deborah Miller Sankey for fifty-six years, who preceded him in death. Cherished brother of Eva and Rosabelle. Maury grew up in California, and after high school he "went to sea" with the Merchant Marines and later the U.S. Navy during World War II. After the war he worked as a pile driver. In 1948 he married Debbie and lived on Long Island, NY where he worked at the Pall Corporation. Besides Debbie, Maury loved the sea, gardening, and music.
