Old Saybrook

Dr. Steven “Cy” Tishler, 75, of Mansfield and Old Saybrook, passed away on Oct. 25 at Middlesex Hospital. He was the son of the late Marcia (Karotkin) and Paul Tishler. He was a graduate of Weaver High School, Fairleigh Dickinson University, and the New England College of Optometry.

Dr. Tishler practiced for more than 45 years in Mansfield, specializing in children’s vision. He was very respected in this field and had “generations of patients.” An avid fan of Corvettes, he owned many over the years. He especially enjoyed many summers at the family cottage on Chapman Beach in Westbrook.

He is survived by his wife Patricia R. Dileo; his nephews, Dr. Darren Tishler (Stefanie) and Kevin Tishler (Brooke); his sister-in-law Gail Tishler; and special friend Sheryl Wexler. He was predeceased by his brother Dr. Ronald Tishler and his sister Myrna Keryc.

A private funeral service was held with Rabbi David Small officiating at the Emanuel Cemetery in Wethersfield. The Hebrew Funeral Association was in charge.
