At age 11, he, his sister, and mother fled Latvia to escape communism. They eventually found refuge in Wurzburg, Germany. After five years, they were able to obtain a sponsorship visa from an American family to emigrate to the United States and resided in Schenectady, NY.
He graduated from Nott Terrace High School in Schenectady, NY and Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, NY then obtained a BS in Physics from the former North Adams State College. He was employed by General Electric Ordnance Division in Pittsfield, MA as a Design Engineer. He also served in the US Army from 1956 through 1958, stationed at the Nike Hercules Missile Base in Burlington, MA. He enjoyed golf for many years and was a member of Wahconah Country Club.
He is survived by his wife, the former Anna Chiacchiaretta, whom he married September 3, 1960. Also, he is survived by his son, Stephen Ozols and his wife Janelle and grandson Mikhail of Epping, NH; his daughter Kirsten and her husband Steven Quatromoni and his grandson Nico and granddaughters Jenna and Julia.

A special recognition and thank you to the wonderful caregivers at Craneville Place of Dalton who lovingly cared for him and his family, especially during the difficult times.
