Paul John Gawitt, 77, of Wethersfield, beloved husband of Dolores (Carta) Gawitt, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 12, 2019. Paul was born on July 18, 1941 in New Britain, CT to the late Daniel and Helen (Mikosz) Gawitt. He worked for Connecticut Natural Gas for many years; however, his true passions were his faith and his family. Paul was a Eucharistic Minister at Corpus Christi Church in Wethersfield for over 30 years and in 2013 he received the Saint Joseph Archdiocesan Medal of Appreciation for his volunteer work. In addition, he enjoyed golfing, his Thursday night bowling league, playing card games with his friends and horse racing.
Besides his wife, Paul is survived by his two daughters, Amy Pallotti and her husband Philip of Wethersfield, and Kelly Schultz and her husband David of Fairfield. Paul also leaves behind his cherished grandson, Philip Pallotti V, and his brother Michael Gawitt of Maryland. He was predeceased by his brother Larry Gawitt of California.
