Morton Marvin Siegel
Morton Marvin Siegel was born February 19, 1927, in Far Rockaway, NY. He passed June 28, 2019, in Redwood City, CA
Mort had many fond memories of growing up in New York City, where he met and married the love of his life, Millie.
A proud United States Marine, he wore his flag and service pins on his sports jacket that he wore for any outing, even a trip to the local supermarket.
A graduate of Columbia University in New York, most of Mort's career was in TV and Radio Broadcasting, including WINE in Brookfield, and he was the theater reviewer for the Danbury News Times for almost 20 years.
Mort and Millie lived in Danbury for more than 50 years, and they loved running into friends at the many cultural events that filled their calendar.
Mort is survived by his son, Joseph, and daughter, Ellyn.
At his request, no services will be held.
Donations in memory of Mort and Millie (who passed on May 30, 2018) can be made to the Richter Association for the Arts or the scholarship fund at the Danbury Music Centre.

I will always hold Mort and Millie close to my heart. I was so lucky to get to know them, and kept in touch for years!

Rest in peace, Mort.
Our families knew each other over the many years, and Mort and Millie were wonderful supporters of good causes, the arts, community events and the library. Mort was the "heart" of WINE and we knew him as a fine journalist, as well.
His friendly,sincere and welcoming manner will always be remembered.
