On Wednesday, January 24, 2018, Edgar Georg Grunwald of Middletown, MD, died peacefully at home. Born November 7, 1927, he emigrated to the United States under the auspices of the refugee relief program; a part of the Marshall Plan, with his wife Christa and infant son in June 1956, settling in Middletown. A longtime member of the Zion Lutheran Church in Middletown, Washington Saengerbund, the Steuben Society, the Concord Club of Washington, DC and the Schlaraffia Washingtonia, he retired from Montgomery County as an Electronics Technician in the Police and Fire Communications Division, after 32 years of service. His greatest passion was his family.
