Daniel Lewis Shycoff, age 76, died May 13th, 2021 of Alzheimer’s disease. Born in 1945 to Carl and Ann Shycoff, he grew up in Haverhill, Massachusetts. He graduated from MIT in 1966 and moved to California to work as an Aerospace engineer at Lockheed. He met his wife Bridget, the love of his life, at Lockheed in Burbank, California, and they were married in 1975. In 1992 they were transferred to Lockheed Martin in Marietta Georgia with the F-22 project. They spent 10 years there, then retired and returned to Studio City, California.
Family was very important to Dan. He and Bridget travelled regularly to the East Coast for family celebrations. Dan played softball, golf and bridge, making life-long friends. He loved following sports and remained loyal to the Boston teams, especially the Red Sox and Patriots. He was a loving husband and a loyal friend. He was extremely intelligent and had a dry humor. After he retired, he was thrilled to be able to travel with Bridget to Israel and Europe.
Dan is preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Ann Shycoff, and his sister Diane Foreman. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Bridget, his brother, Donald Shycoff, and his brother-in-law Warren Foreman.
