September 22, 1996

Jeffrey Edward Ament, 53, who had owned a printing company in Rosedale and traveled the country, died Sept. 5 in a car accident in Alpine, Texas.

A Baltimore native who attended Towson High School, Mr. Ament founded Cody Bauer Printing Co. in 1989. He sold the business three years later so he could travel. He especially enjoyed Alpine in western Texas and moved there in 1992.

He compiled and published a cookbook of his favorite recipes, enjoyed skiing, tennis, sailing and clay target shooting, and was a volunteer with the American Red Cross.

He is survived by two sisters, Allison Burrier of Baltimore and Lynn Alim of Fair Oaks, Calif.

No funeral was held.

Harold Baron, 74, who operated a job printing business at his Northwest Baltimore home, died of renal failure there Sept. 6.

He was a printer for 40 years until his retirement in 1989 from Dulaney-Vernay Printing Co. He then established Fleetwood Printing Co., using an early 20th-century Heidelberg printing press.

Born and raised in East Baltimore, he was a graduate of Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School and served in the Army Corps of Engineers during World War II. He enjoyed playing the drums, listening to Dixieland music and collecting coins.

He is survived by his wife of 51 years, the former Elise Levy; two sons, Eugene S. Baron of Baltimore and Mark A. Baron of Vermillion, S.D.; two sisters, Betty Klupt of Pikesville and Sarah Weistock of Tampa, Fla.; and a grandson.

Services were held Sept. 9.

Willis Lambert Cissel, 88, a retired farm manager, died of pneumonia Sept. 10 at Bon Secours Nursing Care Center in Ellicott City.

Born on the family farm in Glenelg, he raised beef cattle and grew corn after graduation from Clarksville High School. In 1938, he moved to Waterford Farm in the Howard County community of Daisy to begin a long career as its manager -- overseeing 550 acres and raising cattle.

Although he retired during the 1980s, he lived on the farm until last year.

After the 1989 death of his wife of 55 years, the former Eleanor Magruder, Mr. Cissel learned to bake to continue her custom of welcoming new neighbors with fresh rolls.

He is survived by two daughters, Kimi Johnson of Ellicott City and Catherine Erdman of Orono, Maine; a son, W. Lambert Cissel Jr. of Daisy; two brothers, Roger Cissel of Columbia and Chester Cissel of Centreville; nine grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

A memorial service was held Sept. 14.
