Edward “Ed” Kuczynski, 89, passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 28, 2019 after a brief illness. He now joins his beloved wife Lottie of 52 years who predeceased him in 2006. Ed was a loving father to his four sons and daughter, Michael & Deborah Kuczynski of Coventry, Ken Kuczynski of Ellington, Edward Jr. & Cindy Kuczynski of ValDosta, GA, Russ Kuczynski of Colchester and Sharon & Rich Zechiel of Manchester. He also cherished being a grandpa to his 12 grandchildren. Ed had so many special friendships and will dearly miss Arlene, Fred, Don and Ali. He was a long-time resident of Manchester and a devout catholic and parishioner at St. James Church. Prior to his retirement, he worked at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft for over 25 years. He became quite the “social butterfly” and loved being out and about having fun with family & friends. Ed was also an avid books on tape listener and fast food restaurant junkie. He enjoyed playing bingo at the Senior Center, attending BESB meetings, Knight of Columbus outings and lunch with friends. Ed will be remembered for his gentle soul and kindness he showed to everyone he met. He will be greatly missed by those he loved so dearly. Rest in peace sweet man!
