Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick presented a proclamation to Town of Tonawanda resident Lawrence Titzler during the Legislature’s Sept. 27 session. Titzler, a World War II veteran, was joined by his wife Irene during the recognition.
“I was so honored by the presence of Mr. Titzler and his wife, Irene at our meeting. When our nation needed him, Mr. Titzler and hundreds of thousands like him were there. We can all thank them for the life we are able to enjoy today in the country they made great,” said Hardwick.
The proclamation honors Titzler’s commitment and service to his country and community.
Titzler was a frontline medic at the Battle of the Bulge in 1944 and was charged with processing information related to troop movement to best prepare medics and ready them to respond to injuries.
After being honorably discharged from the military, Titzler finished college and was a well-known and respected business teacher and assistance principal for Tonawanda High School.
Titzler received a standing ovation from the Legislature in recognition of his achievements and service.
