Robert L. LaBissoniere

EDMOND —     Robert L. LaBissoniere, 63, of Coventry, Conn., passed away peacefully Saturday, November 9, 2013 with family by his side.  He was born September 15, 1950 in Meriden, Conn., a son of Helen (Driscoll) LaBissoniere of Edmond, Okla., and the late George L. LaBissoniere.

    He was a graduate of Xavier High School and the Charter Oak State College where he received a B.S. in Health Studies. Bob served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War where he was a combat medic (corpsman). He received his LPN license upon discharge. Bob worked at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Newington, Conn., as a orthopedic technologist. Although he worked for other employment in that field, he always loved his time at the VA.

    Bob was loved and will be missed by his family, friends, and caregivers; his laugh, smile, and generous nature most of all. Bob enjoyed the outdoors, playing pool with his buddies, motorcycles, and rooting for his New York Giants. He especially loved his four-legged boys, Zak, Harley, Trooper, Coal, Banff, and Sam.

    He is survived by his daughter, Sara Waddle and her husband Damien, and his grandson, Jackson, all of Yukon, Okla.; his brothers, Tom LaBissoniere and his wife Linda of Meriden, George LaBissoniere and his wife Mona of South Meriden, Dan LaBissoniere and his wife of Sharlene of South Meriden, Michael LaBissoniere and his wife Carole of Middletown; his sisters, Jean Civale and her husband Frank (Chip), Mary Patino and her husband Gary all of Meriden, Helen Civale and her husband Kim of East Windsor, and Michelle Lopez and her husband Jerry of Edmond; several nieces and nephews, and  great-nieces and great-nephews.

    A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, November 16, 2013, at Holy Angels Church, 585 Main St., South Meriden, CT. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Bob may be sent to Our Companions Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 956, Manchester, CT 06045.

    Arrangements are under the direction of The Yalesville Funeral Home, 386 Main St., Yalesville section of Wallingford.

    The family thanks each and every person at Masonicare who touched Bob’s life during his final months.
