Theodore Yankauer III ’53

Published in Sept. 10, 2003, issue

Tim, one of our successful Wall Street executives, died May 11, 2003, after a bout with brain cancer.

Upon finishing Woodmere [N.Y.] HS, he began Princeton on Dickinson St. in one of the homes that housed freshmen. There it was like a small club. Jim Neff recalls the pleasant surroundings and going out with Tim for the 150-lb. frosh crew. Dick Simmons remembers Tim as a considerate roommate who "always had a smile on his face and would join in on just about any endeavor."

Tim majored in mechanical engineering, and so had a short walk to his eating club, Campus. After graduation, he sandwiched in engineering design before and after Army service. He became a stockbroker, married Margaret Berger, and had two boys. Later the family moved to New Jersey. He retired seven years ago as vice president of equity research at Salomon Smith Barney. Divorced, he traded for himself on the Internet from his Mahwah home until he became ill.

We pay our final respects and send warm feelings to sons Jeff and Stephen '89; sister Ellen; and adored granddaughter Sarah.
