It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Detachment Life Member Milton S. Brynin of Yonkers on February 5, 2018, at the Veteran's Home in Montrose, N.Y. He was 94.  Affectionately known as "Milte" he was born in New Rochelle, N.Y. on October 25, 1923 to the late Alex and Jennie Brynin. In 1949, he married Doris (nee Mager), has two children, Howard of Peekskill, NY and Rona of Newport Beach, CA, and two grandchildren Max and Zeke Brynin. Glenn Brynin, his eldest son, died in June of 2017.

He attended school in New Rochelle, NY, and graduated from Albert Leonard High School in 1941, where he was an accomplished baseball player. After completing high school, he proudly enlisted in the military and was a veteran of WWII and the Korean War.  His Army service during WWII was in the European Theatre where he endured battles in Northern France, Central Europe and Rhineland. A fiercely patriotic American, he re-enlisted in the Marine Corps, serving as sergeant during the Korean conflict.

Truly reflective of the "Greatest Generation", he put his military tenure behind him and embarked on a family life, working hard to provide for family and community. He was the proprietor of Craft Typographers of Mt. Vernon, NY, a small union shop that he operated for more than twenty years.  Milt was an avid target shooter and reloader, and was the Past President of the Yonkers Pistol and Revolver Club. He continued to shoot and reload into his nineties and made many trips to Camp Perry in Ohio for national military matches.  He was active in the Lions Club and was a 32nd degree Mason.

Milton will most be remembered for his quick wit and sense of humor. He loved to tell a joke and was a notorious ice cream eater.  He enjoyed the outdoors and cherished his many dogs.  Along with his children and grandchildren, he loved to explore a snowy trail or mountain road while driving his trusty jeep.

Interment is private. Contributions in memory of Milton Brynin may be made to the Yonkers Animal Shelter, www.newyonkersanimalshelter.org

It is with great regret that I have to report that another fine marine has been promoted to the highest rank of “Heavens Guard”.  Stand tall, look sharp, and make us all proud, Marine.


Alicia’s father,  Al Eisel passed away last night.


There are no arrangements as of now, or as to what we may do as a detachment.


Any suggestions may be submitted to the commandant for consideration.


Please keep Alicia and her family in your prayers.

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Detachment Life Member Geno P. Egiziaco Sr., a World War II Marine, who passed away on January 19, 2018 at the NYS Veteran's Hospital in Montrose surrounded by his devoted wife, Florence and family.  Geno was born on March 6, 1922 in Waltham, MA to his parents, Michael and Carmella. After a short time living in the Bronx, he, his parents, 6 brothers and 5 sisters settled in Yonkers. A member of the "Greatest Generation", Geno proudly served the Second World War as a member of the United States Marine Corps and later with the United States Army Transport Services having had the distinction of honorably serving both of these branches. He spent twenty-eight months in the combat zone. Upon his honorable discharge, Geno returned to Yonkers and began working at the Chrysler Corporation in New York City before joining Otis Elevator in Yonkers as a machinist. He rose through the ranks of the organization to Activities Director, Labor and Management, Liaison and Supervisor of Stocks and Records until his retirement in 1982. Geno was a true community leader who was strongly committed to helping his fellow veterans. He was instrumental in bringing Veterans Appreciation Day to Yonkers and assisted with the planning of city-wide veteran's events including the Memorial Day Parade of which he was Grand Marshal one year. For his devotion to veterans, he was inducted into the New York State Senate Veteran's Hall of Fame in 2010. Geno's greatest passion was always his family which included his late wife, Alma Bistany and their two sons, Geno, Jr. (Patricia) and Michael and his wife of thirty-six years, Florence Landi; his grandchildren, Denise, James, Michael, Jr. and Joseph as well as his twin great-granddaughters, Anabel and Valentina and his beloved dog, Daisy. He enjoyed spending winters in Naples, Florida and made many lifelong friends there. He was a true Yankee fan and watched all of the games. In addition to his wife and children, he is survived by his brother, Michael, sisters Barbara and Antoinette DeCarmo. He was predeceased by his brothers, James, William, Anthony, Peter and Samuel and sisters, Amelia Mastropola, Edith Mikolay and Mary Wright. Throughout his lifetime, Geno maintained a standard of excellence as was evidenced by the love and affection, so many had for him both in Yonkers and Naples. The family would like to thank all of the caring and supportive staff of the Montrose Veterans Home, particularly those of Eagle Point. Friends may call on Sunday from 2-5 & 6-9PM at Sinatra Memorial Home, Inc., 499 Yonkers Ave., Yonkers, NY. The funeral will be Monday at 10:00 at St. Anthony Church, Nepperhan Ave. & Squire Ave., Yonkers. Interment will be in Ferncliff Cemetery, Hartsdale.
