  • Notes 
    • RICHARD JOHN LIGHTHALL, (6):
      Attended Hamilton College, BA Syracuse University; 2nd Lieutenant in World War I, did not get to France. (Had a severe case of flu in 1918, and was so thin his mother did not recognize him - 6ft and 118lbs!!) Banker, Trust Officer with the Chemical Bank in New York. Active in community affairs, served on Board of Finance in Darien for several years. Described as the only person who boarded the morning commuter train to New York with a smile on his face and a bounce in his step. A kind and gentle man. In his later years had persistent heart trouble, and died in his sleep of a heart attack.
      Lived in Darien most of his professional career; they bought a home in Lakeville CT in 1952, and spent most of their weekends and holidays there from then on. After retirement spent time in Gulfport, Florida, and eventually sold the home in Lakeville, renting an apartment in Sharon, Connecticut for the summer months. - [Bill Compton]
