With great sadness James Lapan gained his angel wings on February 28, 2018. He was loved by so many family and friends throughout his lifetime with his funny jokes and quick come backs. He made sure his family was always taken care of and spent countless hours with his granddaughter, who will always be the apple of his eye. He was looking forward to the arrival of his twin grandchildren due in August. He will be missed terribly by his family and friends but the memories we have together will live on in our hearts. One of the best memories we hold in our hearts is Jim being outside all year round with his furry companions.

Jimmy was a long term employee for the State of Connecticut, Department of Transportation, where he enjoyed working with his colleagues.

He is preceded by his parents Bernard and Jeanette Lapan and his daughter Megan Lapan. He is survived by his wife Dawn (Robinson) Lapan, daughter Ashley Lapan, Sharon Guarino, granddaughter Brooklyn Lapan, brother Kim Lapan and several nieces and nephews. Calling hours will be Sunday, March 4, from 5pm to 8pm at Green Funeral Home, 57 Main St., Danbury, CT. The funeral service will be held Monday at 11:30am at Green Funeral Home with interment to follow at Wooster Cemetery. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to a charity of your choice.

Dear Dawn and family,
This news put me to my knees. I’m lost for words to comfort you but he was one of the happiest and funniest of men.
Many of my memories of him were those shared with my dad, Mike, Jamie, and the rest of the Morefar clan. The laughter was never ending, we never knew what was going to come out of his mouth...much like my dad, dear Ed Butler.
I loved living across the road from you and sure felt safe knowing Jim was right there. He always will be you know...
The greatest of men, husband, father, grandfather and friend!
You live on Jimmy 💙

It is with deepest sympathy that I send my condolences to all of jimmy's family. Although we have not seen each other in recent years my memories of Jimmy will always be in my heart. My favorite one of all is every time we met he would lift me off the ground with the best bear hugs I have every gotten. Tommy is there to welcome you my friend give him one of those hugs from me. Godspeed
