State Disabled Vets Pick Rochesterian Tressy Long Active in Organization

During the past week Michael E. Tressy 187 Barberry Ter., was unanimously elected commander of the New York State Department of the Disabled American Veterans of the World War. This is the first time in the history of the DAV that a disabled veteran from Rochester was so honored.

State Commander Tressy has been a candidate for this office for the past two years, but has declined in favor of other comrades.

Commander Tressy entered the service at Rochester, Sept. 26, 1917. at the age of 31 years, as a private. He was assigned to Battery C, 309 Field Artillery. Commander Tressy, served overseas from Jan. 12, 1918, until Oct. 25, 1919. He was in action at Toul and Cantigny and was so badly wounded n June 3, 1918, that he had to be carried from the battlefield. Since that time he has been confined to a wheel chair. He was discharged Nov. 20, 1919.

Commander Tressy belongs to all the World War veterans organizations and has been active in each. Two years ago he served as commander of Rochester Chapter 15 and saw its membership grow to the highest ever attained here, becoming the second largest in the Btate and 11th in the nation.

19 May 1956 Ithaca Journal

James S. Tressy, 77, a member of the Carpenter's Union Local 603 for 54 years and a delegate to the Ithaca Central Labor Union for some 30 years, died early Friday evening, May 18, 1956, in Memorial Hospital after a short illness.

Now retired, Mr. Tressy served his apprenticeship in Ireland where he learned to be a wagon maker and did general carpentry work. In 1898 when he came to Ithaca he had to learn the tricks of the trade all over again and it was not until 1902 that he was able to become a member of Local 603.

First employed by contractors Crowley and Dempsey he worked on the then new Ithaca High School which was destroyed by fire in 1912 and then on the construction of the First Presbyterian Church. This job was finished by the Campbell Brothers and Tressy remained with them until that firm dissolved.

Later he worked for Driscoll Brothers until 1936 and then worked for himself on assignments.

During his membership in Local 603 he has held all chairs including president, except two. April 3, 1948, he was presented a testimonial by the Ithaca Central Labor Union "in recognition of his skillful craftsmanship as a carpenter and joiner, his exemplary citizenship and his loyal devotion to Central as delegate and officer.

A member of Ithaca Council 277. Knights of Columbus and of the Fourth Degree Assembly of the Council in April 1955 he was presented a 50-year membership.

A trustee of the Church of the Immaculate Conception where he has been an usher and collector for over 40 years, he was a member of the Nocturnal Adoration Society; director of the Catholic Youth Organization; member of the Holy Name Society.

He is survived by a son, the Rev. John J. Tressy, pastor of St. Mary Magdalen Church, Wolcott; a daughter, Miss Anne Tressy of Ithaca; a brother, Michael E. Tressy of Rochester; two sisters, Miss Catherine Tressy of Rochester and Mrs. James Walsh Of Canandaigua and several nieces and nephews.
