Lloyd L. DrossartApril 9, 2015
If you're about to walk past a penny on the street, stop and pick it up. It's exactly what Lloyd Louis Drossart would have done. He entered this world on May 21, 1925 to William and Lucy Drossart, and entered eternal life on April 9, 2015 surrounded by his family in Eau Claire, WI. Those who knew him were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Lloyd during the 89 years he spent on this earth. Among those lessons might be a favorite saying of his, "A penny saved, is a penny earned." He may not have been rich in the wallet all his life, but he was always rich in life and wisdom. Here are a few things he will pass on to those he touched:
Lloyd developed his wisdom and rich life because he was a conversationalist. He loved to get to know anyone and everyone he could in Casco, where he lived his whole life, and anywhere else he went. This was most evident if you ever made a trip to the Village Kitchen in Casco with him. You would have thought he was running for President the way he shook hands and kissed babies. It was very genuine though; he just loved conversing with people.
He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years (that's not a typo), Elizabeth (Bette) Ann Drossart. He is also survived by his children Laurie Hittman and husband Jim; son Gerard Drossart and wife Gail; the four grandchildren (Tracie Hittman Fountain, Paul Hittman, Alex Drossart and Aaron Drossart) made his life better with their visits: and one great grandchild (Naomi Fountain) was the light of his life in his closing days.
Preceding him in death were his parents and siblings: Kathleen Martin and Perry Drossart. Lloyd is reunited with his son, Perry, who was taken prematurely from this earth after a battle with cancer at the age of 21.
Visitation will be at Wiesner & Massart Funeral Home, Casco on Tuesday, April 14 from 4:00-8:00pm and again on Wednesday until 10 a.m. A prayer service will be held at the funeral home at 6 p.m. and Legion program at 6:30 p.m. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Casco on Wednesday April 15 at 10:30 with Reverend Milton Suess officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery after the service with full military rites.
