Henry Herman Kayser, a retired telephone company engineer and technical consultant, died of cancer June 16 at Gilchrist Hospice Care of Towson. The Stoneleigh resident was 76.
Born in Baltimore and raised on Regester Avenue, he was the son of Henry Kayser, a naval architect, and Julia Kayser, a homemaker, who were German immigrants. He was a 1953 Polytechnic Institute graduate and earned a physics degree from Loyola College. He also studied at the Johns Hopkins University.
Mr. Kayser worked for 41 years at the old Western Electric Co. and at AT&T. He retired from Lucent Technologies, where he was a technical consultant.
"He approached everything from an engineer's perspective," said his daughter, Katie Moran of Baltimore. "He was analytic and did not jump to conclusions."
