He was honored with the Purple Heart, two Oak Leaf clusters and the Silver Battle Star. He ended his service as a private first class while stationed in Germany in 1953. He retired from the Town of West Hartford, Conn. after 30 years of service. He then worked for the Metropolitan District Commission and retired after 10 years of service. While in West Hartford, he was commander of VFW Post 254 from 1970-1971. He was a resident of West Hartford, Conn., for 32 years retiring to Swansboro in 2001.

    He is survived by his daughters, Suzanne Todd and husband Chester Dziardziel, of Bloomfield, Conn., and Mary Batista, of West Hartford, Conn., sons, Stephen Lessor and wife Charmen, of Bloomfield, Conn.; Ned Lessor and wife Margie, of New Britain, Conn.; sister, Lilian Dunn of Windsor, Conn.; brother-in-law, Stephen Pierce of Enfield, Conn.; and grandchildren, Mason Todd, Jeremy Todd, Terra Batista, David Lessor and Anthony Lessor; seven great-grandchildren; and many nieces and a nephew.

    PS: My Dad was a huge lifelong NY Giants Fan, we shared many of Sundays watching and cheering for our favorite teams. We loved the sport and it's players for many years together. He was pulling for us Vikings Fans this past playoffs, he always wanted to see us get our Superbowl also someday, because he knew who much that would meen to me and other fans. I'll miss him very very much.

    sorry for your loss Ned...just from the short bio though it sounds like your father had a good and full life. I know "he's in a better place" sounds like the standard thing to say but I believe it's the truth.

    And isn't it amazing how those memories watching football together on Sundays are just priceless? Watching and talking sports together are some of the best memories I have of my Grandfather.
