Obituary for Lance Latta, Jr.

Lance Latta, Jr. of New Haven, CT passed away after a lengthy illness in the comfort of his home surrounded by friends and family on September 27, 2018 at the age of 73.

Lance was born on February 22, 1945 to the late Lance Latta and Ida Mae Hester Latta in White Plains, NY. He was the youngest of 3 children. Lance graduated from Stratford High School and soon after joined the US Air Force from 1967-1971, and served as an Inventory Management Specialist. He was a retired computer operator, having worked at several companies, eventually retiring from “Save the Children” in Westport. Lance was a member of the American Legion Col. Charles Young Post #140, where he served as commander for 3 years. He was also a member of the Newfield Tree Club.

Lance is survived by his loving wife Marilyn Reese Latta; a son Lance Dwayne (Shawn) Latta; daughters Dana Latta (Duane) White, Nicole Latta (Arthur) Sullo, Joia Latta; stepdaughters Tracey (Michael) Watson, Lynda (Alvin) Manuel, Audrey Sharpe, and Holly Sharpe; a brother Howard (Donna) Latta; a sister Thelma Brown, 20 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and a special friend, Donald Day.

I would like to thank the staff of the Yale Medical Smilow Cancer Center in Fairfield, the Peri Operative Teams at the Park Avenue Medical Center and the staff that cared for Lance at Bridgeport Hospital for their care and kindness. To his family and friends, words cannot express the gratitude he felt after receiving your visits, phone calls, prayers and messages during his illness. Thank you all.
