Casimir R. DYGUS Obituary

DYGUS, Casimir R.

Casimir R. Dygus, 89, of Dunedin, FL died on Thursday, (May 16, 2013) after a short illness. He was the beloved husband of Florence (Labieniec) Dygus for 62 years. Born in New Britain, son of the late Anthony and Antoinette Dygus, he grew up here and graduated from New Britain High School, where he was active in baseball and basketball. He was a Corporal in the U.S. Army Air Corps and served in England during World War II. Cas worked at the U.S. Postal Service, New Britain for 28 years and was a longtime member of Holy Cross Church, New Britain. He was a member of the Northwestern T.G.M. Veterans, the Spartans Veterans and the V.F.W. He was very active in local sports, playing in the Industrial and Catholic Leagues in his earlier years, playing softball for the postal league, and coaching the Northwestern Vets in the New Britain Babe Ruth League. He also enjoyed golfing and bowling and spending many winter vacations skiing with family and friends. After retirement, Cas and Flo moved to Clearwater, FL, where they resided for the last 35 years, and were active members of St. Michael's Church. In his later years, Cas's passion was to get his morning paper, check the lottery numbers, check the sports page for the good games that were televised that day and then read that paper in its entirety. Besides his wife, Flo, he leaves his daughter and son-in-law Anne Marie Washburn and Stuart of Merrimac, MA, his son and daughter-in-law Stephen Dygus and Anne of Kensington, two grandchildren Kendra Anthony and her husband Matt of San Diego, CA, and Matt Dygus of Gorham, ME, and several nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. He also leaves many friends at Doral Village in Clearwater that he and Flo made over the years. He was predeceased by two brothers Alexander and Walter Dygus and one sister Genevieve Civizzio.
A Mass of Christian Burial was held at St. Michael's Church, Clearwater, FL. His funeral service, here, will be held at a later date. To share a memory with his family, please visit us at www.burritthill.com
