Martin L. Amsl, 69, engineer for Westinghouse

March 31, 2006

Martin L. Amsl, a retired Westinghouse engineer, died of a hemorrhage March 22 at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. The Bel Air resident was 69.

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., he earned a mechanical engineering degree from Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and a master's degree in administration from George Washington University.

After service in the Army Corps of Engineers as a first lieutenant, he moved to Baltimore in 1962 to take a job at Westinghouse Corp. in Linthicum.

He lived in Sykesville for many years and was active in the Boy Scouts there.

Mr. Amsl was a senior project leader when he retired from Westinghouse in 1991. He then worked part time for Westinghouse, Jacobs Engineering and SAIC, another engineering firm.

"He was a man of integrity, and he had a gorgeous smile," said a daughter, Debra Amsl Rettberg of Bel Air. "He was a modest man who worked hard for his family."

Mr. Amsl enjoyed traveling, boating and gardening.

Services were held Monday at Advent Lutheran Church in Forest Hill, where he was a member and had been president of the elementary school's board of directors.

Survivors include his wife of 42 years, the former Dolores P. Witkowski; another daughter, Regina M. Amsl of Baltimore; a son, William A. Amsl of Baltimore; and two grandsons.
