This is from a New Jersey paper. A brief summary:

"He partnered leading ballerinas of the day, including Alicia Markova and Alexandra Danilova. His most longstanding professional attachment, however, was with the New York City Ballet. Under the tutelage of George Balanchine, he would dance as a soloist for the company, and later as stage manager and stagehand, as well as being in charge of ordering and cataloguing ballet shoes. Throughout his New York career, he was a member of the American Guild of Musical Artists and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees."
His loyalty, hard work and dedication were underpinnings of our enjoyment for many years.
