Radlo, the son of an egg marketer and distributor, began Radlo Brothers Inc., a broker and producer of eggs in the Northeast, and Radlo International, an export company, in the 1950s after a distinguished military career and service in World War II.

In 1985, Radlo formed Vicam with scientists from Harvard, M.I.T. and Boston University. In the 1990s he took a franchise with C.R. Eggs, later known as Egg-Land's Best, and eventually became a board member. He served as Radlo foods' chairman until shortly before his death.

Radlo is survived by wife, Renie; children David, Marjorie and Sally and their spouses; grandchildren; siblings Ruth and Lucille; and many other family members. Services will be held in Lexington, Mass., on September 21.
