Donald E. Kammerer, a retired Buffalo police lieutenant and World War II veteran, died Sunday in Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, Thibodaux, La., where he had resided for the past month. He was 93.

Born in Buffalo, the Kensington High School graduate served in the Army in Europe in World War II. A private first class in the 23rd Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division, he saw action in Belgium and Germany and suffered frostbitten feet during the Battle of the Bulge. With those in his unit, he received the Bronze Star for the Battle of the Bulge.

Returning from service, Mr. Kammerer worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs for seven years, then joined the Buffalo Police Department in 1954. As a patrolman, he was stationed at Precincts 12 and 16, then was at Precinct 5 as a lieutenant. His photo appeared in the newspapers after he carried a bomb from World War I out of a house where it had been discovered.

He retired in 1976 and returned to the Department of Veterans Affairs as a claims examiner for 10 years.

He was a member of the Buffalo Police Command Officer Association, the American Legion and the 2nd Infantry Division Association.

A Clarence resident since 1971, he and his wife, the former Betty Jane Huebbers, would have celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary on Aug. 23.

Survivors also include a daughter, Karen Pieczonka; two sons, David and John; six grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday in Amigone Funeral Home Harris Hill Chapel, 8440 Main St., Clarence.
