He was born on September 2, 1923 in Newton, MA to Otto Bresky and Mynette (Tannenbaum) Bresky. He was predeceased by siblings, H. Harry Bresky and Marjorie (Bresky) Shifman. Otto attended Choate Preparatory School and Yale University before his stateside military service in the Air Force during World War II. He then continued his education at Babson College. Otto began his business career at Rodney Milling Co. after college and rose to senior executive officer and principal shareholder of what is now known as Seaboard Corporation, a Fortune 500 food and transportation company. He retired in 1984 after nearly 40 years of service in commercial sales and executive management. Otto married Connie Getz of Chicago, IL in 1950. They had two children, Amy Bresky, of Southern Pines, NC and Jill Bresky, of Cambridge, MA. He was a remarkable husband and caretaker when Connie contracted polio in 1955. He lovingly cared for her at home for the rest of her life until her death in 1975. His dedication to his family and desire to create a happy home life in these years was unwavering. Otto found enduring love again with Mary Lou Demers of Plymouth, MA and they married in 1983. Mary Lou and Otto were inseparable, living first in Newton, MA, then on to Plymouth, MA, St. Martin, Punta Gorda, FL and Naples, FL. They loved building homes in these locations, and created warm environments that they shared with family and many friends. Otto was also a caring father figure for Mary Lou's children and will be deeply missed by all of them: Frank Phelps and his wife, Katherine Phelps, of Punta Gorda, FL; Ron Phelps of Punta Gorda, FL: David Phelps and his partner, Deborah Sloan, of Naples, FL; and Dan Phelps and his wife, Priscilla Phelps, of Punta Gorda, FL. Otto was an exceptional and diverse athlete, from playing hockey at Yale, to adult pursuits of surfing, yoga, running, cycling, touch football, swimming and golf. He loved sports cars and motorcycles, and owned one of the first amphicars in the 1960's. Dogs were always a part of his life, from developing the miniature Daschund breed in the early 1950's, to an array of much loved dogs large and small throughout his life, including his last Yorkie, Buddee. A celebration of Otto's life is planned in September in Naples, FL. In lieu of flowers, donations are appreciated to Avow Hospice in Naples, FL or Yorkie Friends Rescue in Cocoa Beach, FL.
