Rolf Muenker, a longtime resident of the Westchester and Playa del Rey area, has died. He was 88.

Muenker, who lived in the Westchester and Playa del Rey area for 48 years, passed away Monday, March 17th, following a battle with cancer.

Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Muenker worked in customer service and operations for Pan American Airways for several decades and was a very dedicated employee, his family said.

Among his loves were his family and friends, gambling and long walks.

Muenker is survived by his daughter Caroline, son-in-law David and two grandchildren, Matthew and Christina.

Memorial services for Muenker are scheduled at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 5th, at the Covenant Presbyterian Church, 6323 80th St., Westchester.

In lieu of flowers, the family says donations may be made in Muenker’s name to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
