Quentin Adelbert Darmstadt of Wyckoff, NJ passed away on November 17, 2022 at the age of 96. Quentin was the only child of Edward Darmstadt and Lotta (Skeel) Darmstadt of Cleveland, Ohio. He attended James Ford Rhodes High School in Cleveland where he excelled in academics and as a varsity pole vaulter. Quentin joined the Army at 18 and honorably served his country in World War II. After the war, Quentin resumed his education through the G.I. bill at Oberlin College and Harvard University where he earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Mathematics respectively. He enjoyed a successful career as a mathematical analyst in both private and government sectors. Quentin married his loving wife Chai Ok (Chang) in 1973, and they settled in Wyckoff, NJ. Quentin enjoyed studying mathematics and physics throughout his life. He also loved playing chess, watching football, singing in his German music club, and especially reading World War II history. Quentin was urbane, highly educated, and well traveled and yet always very personable. He made you feel you were the funniest and wittiest person, always ready to reward you with a twinkle in his clear blue eyes, a tip of his head back, and his uniquely joyous, sonorous laugh. In addition to his parents, Quentin was predeceased by his wife, Chai Ok who passed in 2013. He is survived by his sister-in-law, Hai Won Chang, sister-in-law, Chung Won Chang and her husband, Kyung Won Suh, his brother-in-law, Sang Tai Lee, two nephews, and a niece. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Quentin’s memory to The Fisher House Foundation, a charity that provides free comfort lodgings near healthcare centers for wounded Veterans and their families. A viewing will be held at Vander Plaat Funeral home, 257 Godwin Avenue, Wyckoff, NJ 07481 on Sunday, November 27, 3-5 pm. Memorial services will be held at the same location on Monday, November 28 at 11:00am. Interment Wyckoff Reform Church Cemetery.
