Joseph D. Obuchowski “Obie” born February 1 1938 in Stamford CT son of the late Joseph and Flora Obuchowski with deceased brother Alister entered into eternal rest on June 19, 2019 at Ludlowe Center with family by his side. He is survived by his beloved wife of 55 years Kathleen G. (Burley) Obuchowski of Greenwich.  They built their lives together in Fairfield CT for the past 51 years.  He has two daughters Doreen Haray with son in law Kevin Nolin of Bridgeport CT, daughter Grace Rosemberg with son in law Pedro Rosemberg of SeymourCT. Joseph has three loving grandchildren Christopher Haraywith newlywed wife Taylor Swezey of Latrobe PA,  JessicaHaray and Peter Rosemberg.  Joe is also survived by sisters in law Gail and Beverly and brother in law Bill, nephews Billy, Fred, Marc and Eric, cousins Gerry and Danny along with great nephew and nieces. He was a dedicated employee of the State of CT Parks Department working at Putnam Park in Bethel CT for 7 years.  He finished his career after 29 years at the Department of Transportation State Highway Department in Westport CT. Friends and coworkers remember “Obie” for his smile and easy going attitude. He was always willing to help friends or strangers if need be. When he wasn’t chasing snowflakes in the winter he was ringing his cow bell at all the ice hockey games Christopher was playing in.  Summertime you could find him down at South Benson Marina fishing with his late son in law Michael Haray and  grandson Chris or talking to all his fishing friends.  If the fish weren’t biting he would be picking up his cans to save his dollar 380 . He enjoyed talking on the CB radio and you could find “Potbelly “with “The Happy Housewife””mini wheels” and “sunset” at all the coffee gathering with all his CB friends.   He was an active member of the Knights of Columbus (Holy Family Council) and active member of Holy Family Parish.  He will be greatly missed by all.  Friends are invited to Larson Funeral home before mass for viewing 9AM followed by mass at Holy Family Parish at 10AM. ‚Äč
