1943 - 2019

Naugatuck, CT Francis “Frank” “Fuzzy” Fazzino, 75, husband of Mary (Murtha) Fazzino, died January 25, 2019 at Bristol Hospital.

Frank was born on June 19, 1943 in Waterbury, CT the son of the late Cesario and Marion (Cammaratta) Fazzino and was a lifelong Naugatuck resident. Frank worked at Peter Paul Cadbury and also worked for the Borough of Naugatuck. Frank was a U.S. Army veteran and a life member of the B.P.O. Elks #967. Frank was an active member of the Naugatuck Hall of Fame, and was inducted on January 25, 1986. Frank had many lifelong accomplishments; he excelled as an athlete in football as well as in baseball; which earned him invitations to attend tryouts with the New York Yankees, Minnesota Twins and Washington Senators. In 1968 Frank was an assistant football coach at Naugatuck High School and in 1991 he coached the Elks Club Team to the Naugatuck Babe Ruth Baseball Championship. Even after all of his achievements and glory, his favorite past time in his later years was his love of fishing and boating with his grandchildren and friends at his cottage in Winsted.

Dear Mary: Please accept my sincere sympathies on the passing of Frank. With immediate family and extended family members to help you through this time, you will endure this emotional, turbulent event with the love, support and devotion of so many.

As I remember our time at Naugatuck High School, I use to josh Fuzzy calling him by his given name - Francis. In turn, Fuzzy responded "don't call me that". He and I enjoyed the special win over Ansonia in the annual Thanksgiving game, a win in our senior year after three years of disappointment.
Again, you will have the strength to celebrate Frank's life and all the joys both of you experienced.
Sincerely, Dave Federowicz
