Obituary for Edwin Fitzgerald

Edwin  Fitzgerald
Edwin “Fitzie” Fitzgerald, 87, of Wethersfield passed away December 3, 2017. He was born in Waterbury, CT on February 4, 1930, son of the late Maurice and Catherine (Kennedy) Fitzgerald. He was predeceased by his brother, Maurice, and his bride of 51 years, Jacklyn (Lostritto) Fitzgerald. Fitzie graduated from Sacred Heart High School and served in the US Navy for two tours during the Korean War, becoming a “Blue Noser” when his ship crossed the Arctic Circle. He attended UConn and upon graduation became a salesman with International Silver in upstate New York. Moving to Wethersfield, he worked for SNET Co. as a Communications Manager, retiring after 26 years in 1988. During his tenure he was responsible for the telecommunications for the GHO among other events. Fitzie was an integral part of the growth of the Hartford Telephone Federal Credit Union serving on its Board of Directors for 24 years, four of which as Chairman. He is a lifetime member of the Telco Pioneers. Never far from a golf course, Fitzie and the “gang of eight” played Goodwin Park nearly every Saturday ending with a visit to the 19th hole at First & Last to compare scores and stories. After retirement, he and Jackye toured the globe to play. They amassed an impressive resume of 240 golf courses, in 40 states and 5 countries.

He leaves behind two daughters; Erin K. Fitzgerald and her partner Gregg Soulette, of South Windsor, CT and Tracey (Michael) Gionta of East Haddam, CT. He will be missed by his three grandchildren, Meghan, Amy and Christopher Gionta.
