Lisa Besse Cascone passed away peacefully on September 26th at Yale New Haven Hospital. She was surrounded by “My Boys” and other family members. Lisa was a freelance photographer, avid organic gardener, devoted mother and a wonderful wife. On any football Saturday, Lisa could be found on the field with her camera at the ready. When not shooting photographs of her boys playing football, she could be found in her immense garden.

She is survived by her husband Anthony and three sons Michael, Eric & Kyle, her parents George & Dawn Besse of Ridgefield, sisters Debbie (Scott) Perry of Rowley, MA and Dianne (Peter) Barone of Trumbull, CT.
