Willy Dorfner passed away May 14, 2012, two weeks prior to his 90th birthday, in Pompano Beach, Florida. Mr. Dorfner previously had lived in San Juan Capistrano, California, and prior to that had spent more than 45 years living in Brunswick.
Mr. Dorfner was born in Steyer, Austria, and was a retired Mechanical Engineer with Alcoa Aluminum in Cleveland, employed for over 25 years. He was a wonderful, giving father and grandfather. Mr. Dorfner was an avid reader, and had been caring for his wife, Edith, until the day he passed away. He had a good, long life, and we miss him greatly.
He is survived by his wife, Edith, 89, of Pompano Beach, Florida; daughter, Susan Christa Johnson, son-in-law, Howard, and granddaughter, Alexandra, all of Coconut Creek, Florida; and daughter, Monica, and son-in-law, Ray Golden, of Ooltewah, Tennessee.
