He published many papers and was an invited speaker at a symposium in Vienna. During his 35 years at Los Alamos, he and his beloved wife, Marilyn, won many bridge championships and enjoyed a home-based business making hand-cut glass wind chimes from wine bottles. They were married for 61 years.”—Jenny (Huber) Sontag, daughter
