John F. Lotty

John F. Lotty, age 74, of Fairfield, beloved husband of Susan (Broderick) Lotty, passed away peacefully Friday May 8, 2020 at St. Vincent’s Medical Center. Born in Bridgeport, the son of the late R. Gordon Lotty and Anne Lotty, he was raised in Trumbull and had been a Fairfield resident for the last 35 years. He was a graduate of Notre Dame High School ’63 and received his BS in Business Administration for UConn Storrs in 1967. He served in the U.S. Army National Guard and enjoyed a lengthy career in residential financial services. John liked to dabble in real estate and maintained his real estate broker’s license. He was a former member, and Past Treasurer of the Patterson Club. Besides spending time with his loving wife, sons and cherished grandchildren, his true passions were golf, basketball, real estate and cars. Survivors in addition to his loving wife of 52 years include two beloved sons, Matthew Lotty of Fairfield and Mark Lotty and his wife Lauren of Fairfield; three adoring grandchildren, Brendan, Ryan and Harlow; two sisters, Sandra Yanosy of Florida and Barbara Hinz of Danbury and several nieces and nephews. Due to current conditions, a private graveside service will be held at Oak Lawn Cemetery. A public Mass and celebration of John’s life will be held at a later date when safe to do so.

  7. Dear Friend John was always cordial. When asked how he was doing, his standard retort was “I’m doing better now that you are here,”. Just heard that our grave sites are only feet apart under a gorgeous tree. John, I look forward to having you close by, but give me some more time to get there. Sleep in peace. Dick Lindstrom

  10. Yesterday from Connecticut friends we learned of John’s passing, and are deeply saddened. As was the norm in Danbury in the late 1970s, we met through our children’s soccer, basketball and baseball activities.
    We were fortunate to build a strong relationship based upon shared sports interests, story telling, bad jokes, a wee taste of scotch, and lots of laughter. Our regular Saturday morning golf game at Richter Park was always something to look forward to no matter what were the weather conditions, and we walked and carried our own golf bags!
    Sadly, I’ve had not often seen John after he and Susan moved back to Fairfield, and we ultimately moved from Connecticut. However, he was a bright light in my life experience, never to be forgotten.
