A. Frederick Romoser, a retired aircraft draftsman, died of stroke complications and kidney failure Sept. 24 at Lorien Columbia Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The former Northeast Baltimore resident was 88.

Born in Baltimore and raised in the Walbrook area, he was a graduate of Polytechnic Institute.

Just before the start of World War II, he became a draftsman and technician at the former Glenn L. Martin Co. aircraft plant in Middle River. He later worked on the Gemini and Apollo programs for what became Martin Marietta.

In the early 1970s, he became a consultant to McDonnell Douglas and Boeing Co. He retired in 1980 from Environmental Elements, a subsidiary of Koppers Co.

He collected stamps, did leather craft work and enjoyed photography.

Services were held Friday in Ellicott City.

Survivors include three nephews, Charles C. Diggs Jr. of Columbia, George H. Romoser of Lutherville and John Romoser of Baltimore, and a niece, Elaine M. Diggs of Columbia.
