WWII vet dies at his Laurel home

LAUREL (WDAM) – A local World War II veteran has died.

A relative says Sidney Lott, Sr., died Saturday at his home in Laurel.  Congressman Steven Palazzo's office replaced Lott's World War II medals years after they were lost.  Palazzo's office also gave Lott an American flag that flew over the U.S. Capitol last summer.

Lott's funeral will be held April 23rd at 2 p.m. at Greater Beaver Meadow Missionary Baptist Church in Heidelberg.  Burial will follow in the church's cemetery.

Sidney Lott, Sr., was 92.
