  • Victor J. Liddon, 64, of Groton, Conn., died peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston on July 18, 2013.
    He was born on June 15, 1949 to Victor and Margaret Mary Coffin-Liddon (deceased) in Little Falls, and is survived by his wife of 41 years, Margaret "Peg" Liddon, and four children, Michele Yen and husband, Paul, and sons, Michael (Stacie), Joseph, Christopher (Whitney) Remington and Paul Yen, II; Victor "Joe" Liddon, II, and wife, Debra Liddon, and sons, Victor "Trey," Chase and Collin Liddon; John Liddon and wife, Sara, and children, Colin and Ella Wertz, and baby Lucy Jane Liddon; and Laura Liddon and boyfriend, Lavon Carter. He is also survived by brother and sisters, Frank Liddon and Kathy Slaboc, of Little Falls, Albert and Patricia Liddon, of New Jersey, and Phyllis (Suzy), of North Carolina; and many nieces, nephews and friends, especially, Ray Metz.
    He was predeceased by sisters, Nancy Samsel and Jackie Guinup and husband, Elmer; sister-in-law, Patricia Liddon; and brother-in-law, Gary Slaboc.
    Victor graduated from St. Mary's Academy in Little Falls in 1967. In 1968, he joined the U.S. Navy and achieved his childhood dream of becoming a submariner. He was stationed aboard the USS Dogfish (SS-350) (DBF), the USS Alexander Hamilton (Blue Crew), the USS George Washington, the USS Kamaehameha (Gold Crew) and the USS Ulysses S. Grant (Blue Crew) and retired after 24 years of faithful service as a senior chief petty officer. He then worked briefly at Electric Boat and moved on to the Lee Company as an inspector, a job that he loved.
    He took joy and pleasure in planting his vegetable garden every year, going to the casinos, and spending time with his wife and family. He was a loyal, loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He will be greatly missed.
