Wilbur C. Middleton Obituary
September 18, 1922 - November 1, 2016 Dr. Wilbur C. Middleton left this Earth on November 1st. Loved ones remembering him are his wife of 54 years Wanda, daughter Marilyn (Keith) Kurich, son Bob (girlfriend Marianne), grandchildren Drew, Max, Shayla and Shayla's mother Michelle. He graduated with his PhD from UCLA, and worked for USC as a Research Engineer. Bill enjoyed his boat and his mooring at Catalina Island where he was an avid scuba diver. He and his family moved all over the country for work, enjoying the adventure of new cities and people. In his early years, he worked at McDonnell-Douglas, helping design safety systems for their new DC-10. As a Systems Engineer for the government, he was on the design team for many projects, including nuclear power plants and the Patriot missile. Bill never passed up a good piece of prime rib, seafood or a buffet. He spoiled his dogs and in his retirement, helped build a "Bark Park" in Laguna Niguel, where he resided for many years. He was very loved and will be missed greatly.
