Retired U.S. Army Sgt. Maj. Edward P. Krysa was interred at Arlington National Cemetery on May 17, 2011 with full military honors. Krysa, 86, a Hudson native and noted tennis instructor here, died Feb. 1, 2011 at Walter Reed Army Hospital, Washington, D.C.
A Hudson High graduate in 1942, Krysa served in World War II in New Guinea and the Phillipines and was discharged in 1945. He reentered the Army in 1949 and served until his retirement in 1966. He was a volunteer coach in Hudson for 30 summers, and the Riverside Park courts were named in his honor in 2001.
Krysa’s surviving brother, Attorney Stanley Krysa of Alexandria, Va., was presented with the U.S. flag at the interment. Among Hudson residents attending the ceremonies were Dorothy Bonazzoli and her daughter, Suzanne Bonazzoli and Tom Ethier. They also paid their respects to U.S. Marine Capt. Seth R. Michaud whose burial site is only a few hundred yards away from Krysa’s final resting place.
