Edward J. Fogarty
Bristol Babcock Retiree

Naugatuck, Edward J. Fogarty, 89, passed away at Apple Rehab on December 13, 2018 after a brief illness. He was the loving husband of Lorraine (Wisinski) Fogarty for 68 years.

Ed was born March 28, 1929 in Naugatuck, son of the late Charles T. and Teresa (Cronin) Fogarty. Ed Proudly served in the U.S. Army, stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. In 1991 Ed retired after serving 46 years as a Design Engineer. His hobbies included restoring antique frames and wood working. He was an avid collector of stamps and coins.

Engineers Club. He was on the board of directors of the Waterbury Heart Association, and was a member and treasurer for the Boy Scout Troup 115 Committee.
