Leland Armbrust, 86

Leland Armbrust, known as Martin, of Boca Raton, Fla., a former Westport resident, died Nov. 25. He was 86.

Westport was home to his family for many years until he and Elena, his wife of 56 years, moved to Boca Raton in 1990 to start a computer company.

He was a proud man, a smart man, a compassionate man.

As an IBM executive for over 30 years, he traveled the world. As a graduate from Stanford Business School, his best day of the year was when the Stanford Cardinals played against UCLA Bruins, his wife’s alma matter.

After retiring from IBM, he and his daughter, Lisa, started a computer company in Miami called Parts International and then Miami Direct.

In 1998, after retiring a second time, he enrolled at Florida Atlantic University to get his BA in fine arts.

He is survived by wife Elena and two daughters, Lisa and Allyson. Lisa and her two sons, Alex and Max live in Boca Raton. Allyson and her husband Peter Burns have three girls, MacKenzie, Abby and Maggie and live in Fairfield.

A service will be held on Friday, Dec. 2 at 4 p.m. at the Grace Community Church, Boca Raton.

The family has asked In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Cancer Society.
