BRETON, Normand E. Normand E. Breton, 72, of East Windsor, husband of
Deborah "Deb" (Lane) Breton, left this world after a long illness for the
place God prepared for him early Tuesday, (April 27, 2004). He was born
April 7, 1932, grew up in the Deerfield section of Windsor, and graduated

his family of five boys in Windsor Locks with the love of sports and music.

his innovative technics on to four of his sons who now use them to make
their livelihood. His oldest son made a career in the U.S. Air Force,
serving his country for 26 years. Normand met and married Deb and they
became inseparable. Normand never failed to express how much he loved and
cherished Deb, and loved Deb's family very much. They loved him in return,
and showed that love in remarkable ways, as Normand battled his illness.

Texas, Michael and his wife, Phyllis of Coventry, Jeffrey and his wife,
