Lance Osadchey

Bradford, Vt. — Lance Osadchey, 74, of Bradford died Monday, Aug. 5, 2013, at his home surrounded by his family.

Lance grew up on a farm in Upstate New York. When he was 15 years old he went to college at Syracuse University where he was a bowman and his team won the IRA National Championship for the Freshman Crew Team. Later he went on to medical school at Syracuse. After becoming a Doctor, he served as a Captain Battalion Surgeon for the 82nd Airborne Division of the US Army Paratroopers.

Dr. Osadchey served his patients in the Emergency Room and in his private practices in Connecticut and Vermont with his intelligence, thoroughness and humor.

Lance enjoyed the company of his best companion, Shadow. He enjoyed music, especially Rock in Roll and his friends in the band 8084. In his 15 years of retirement he skied, created and patented the Velador, worked on his experiments, played chess with his friends and wrote several books.

He enjoyed the company of his children, Mark, Tanya and Kerstin; their spouses Karen, Sean and Jeff; his grandchildren, Miranda, Jack, Reilly, Phoebe, Trevor, Savanna and Landon; his dog, Zephyr; and his brother, Bruce Osadchey and his family.
