Milton Heyes Sperling, 79, of South Pasadena died of a heart attack at his home September 1.

Mr Sperling is survived by his widow, Elizabeth Brown Sperling of South Pasadena; a daughter, Suzanne Sperling Stensaas '56; a son, Kenneth A Sperling '64; a grandson Erik Stensaas; two granddaughters, Stephanie and Melina Sperling; and a daughter-in-law, all of Salt Lake City, Utah; and by two daughters; Lucille Sperling Simsarian '18 of Duarte, and Zelma Sperling McCollum '16 of Kansas.

Mr Sperling was a graduate of South Pasadena High School and of the California Institute of Technology. He was employed at ARCO until his retirement in 1971 as manager of product development and technical services.

Following his retirement, and despite a heart condition, Mr Sperling and his wife traveled extensively, their love of travel having been whetted earlier when they accompanied the Machris Scientific Expedition of the LA County Museum to Central Brazil.

No memorial services were held locally, the family announced, but Mrs Sperling and her son, Kenneth, will attend interment services at a small country cemetery along the Sangamon River banks in Fishey, Illinois, where Mr Sperling played in his childhood.
