Donald Joseph Dickovick, Sr., 85, a lifelong resident of Milford and loving husband to Julianne Dickovick of 62 years, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 19th, 2013.
Donald served in the Navy in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He was an active member of the Legion Post # 196 and enjoyed spending time as a member of the Woodmont B’s. He was a devoted member of St. Mary’s, Church. He retired in 1986 from Norden Systems in Norwalk as a Divisional Proposal Administrator.
Don and Julie took many trips to St. Croix to visit with friends there. He also enjoyed sailing his boat out of Milford Harbor. When the weather got chilly, he liked nothing better than settling down in the front of a roaring fire.
