Paul K. Margolis

Paul K. Margolis, 87, of Los Angeles, CA passed away at his home May 2, 2015. Paul was born and raised in Chicago. As a youth, Paul became fascinated with airplanes, leading to his service in the U.S. Army Air Corps in the Pacific Theater during World War II, earning the WWII Victory Medal and Philippine Independence Ribbon. After his honorable discharge from the service, Paul continued his education at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, and earned a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. After graduation, Paul's interest in airplanes and the burgeoning space industry led him to employment at Space Technology Laboratories (STL) in Redondo Beach, CA. Paul transitioned to The Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, CA, at its formation in 1960, where he worked for 35 years until his retirement. After retirement, Paul continued with other interests including travel and art. He took classes in art and traveled the world. His passion for his work is only exceeded by his devotion to family. Paul was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather. He is survived by his wife, Sandye, of 61 years; two daughters, Susan (Robert) Pentz and Gail (David) Schriver; four grandchildren, Kyle, Kristina, Lucas and Miranda Schriver; and niece and nephews, Clyde, Sharon, and Marc Partner.
