Stuart Lott
January 31, 1946 - June 27, 2011

"Versatility and ability"

Remembered by Carl "Sandy" Behrend:

It is with great sadness that I relay the passing of our classmate Stuart Lott on June 27, 2011. Stu was a great friend and we grew up together in south New Rochelle. We were Trinity, IEYJHS and NRHS alums. Stu was a bass clarinet player in the band and manager for the hockey team. He always had a good joke or a story for anyone who would listen! He graduated from Clarkson University and worked for many years in the insurance side of the construction industry.

Stu and I remained life long friends even though distance separated us. I was the best man in his wedding in 1973. He leaves his wife Martha and two sons.

Published in The Hartford Courant on June 28, 2011:

Stuart N. Lott, 65 years of age, of Simsbury passed away on Monday June 27, 2011 at Hartford Hospital after a valiant three-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Stu grew up in New Rochelle, New York, son of Rose Rubin Lott and Sidney Lott. After graduating from New Rochelle High School, he attended Clarkson College in Potsdam, NY where he received a bachelors degree in social science. He also received a bachelors degree in civil engineering from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. Stu worked as a Loss Control Specialist for The Hartford Insurance Group for 28 years and retired from that position in 2000. Immediately after, he joined Kemper Insurance in a similar position for three years finally joining the Lane Construction Company as their Corporate Safety Manager in 2003. He retired in February 2011.

He is remembered by his colleagues as the consummate, caring professional and a loyal friend.
