Glenn Kuczarski

June 29, 2023


Glenn Frank Kuczarski, beloved husband of Elaine (Douillard) Kuczarski for 51 years passed away on June 29th, 2023 after a long and hard-fought battle with diabetes.                         

He was born in Springfield Massachusetts on October 17, 1949, the son of the late Ronald Kuczarski and Jane (Szarlan) Kuczarski. He graduated from Cathedral High School in Springfield and earned his degree in accounting at Hofstra University in New York. He began his career in New York City but moved to Enfield, Connecticut in 1973 and later Somers so he and his family could be closer to family and friends. He earned his Certified Public Accountant license and worked over forty years in a profession he really enjoyed. He had a very strong work ethic and enjoyed caring for his property, driving his tractor at high speeds in the dark until it was perfectly manicured.

Glenn is survived by his wife Elaine, son and daughter– in- law Eric and Rebecca (St Germain) Kuczarski, son Bryan Kuczarski and daughter and son-in-law Jodie (Kuczarski) Shannon and John Shannon. His grandsons Ethan Kuczarski and Jack Shannon and granddaughters Hannah Kuczarski and Jane and Jordan Shannon. Glenn was predeceased by his parents and granddaughter Sophia Kuczarski. 

As a child he spent summers on the beach in Madison, Connecticut with his parents and extended family members. When his sons were young, he was very active in the Boy Scouts. He was cub master and boy scout master in Enfield for many years.  He coached his daughter’s softball team and enjoyed supporting her in her sports. When she played field hockey at Fairfield University he walked up and down the sideline yelling directions to her in a sport he really didn’t understand.  His children and grandchildren were the light of his life. After retirement he became a snowbird spending winters in Fort Myers Beach, Florida and summers in Madison with his wife, where he enjoyed time with his family, fishing and playing games, in particular poker. He was fascinated with history, particularly World War II, and enjoyed discussing it with his grandsons Ethan and Jack.

He also is survived by the Youth for Understanding foreign exchange students he hosted with his family. Juan Gonzalez (Mexico), Daniel Biaggi (Switzerland), Petra Ronkko (Finland), Carsten Sill (Germany), Freggie Malouli (Brazil), Javier Medina (Spain) and Dante Martenelli (Brazil). 

A funeral service is scheduled for 11:30 am on July 14, 2023 at St. Margaret Church, 24 Academy Street, Madison, CT 06443. A celebration of his life will follow the service at the cottage at the Westbrook Elks Club, 142 Seaside Avenue, Westbrook, CT 06498. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Sophia Fund (in memory of his granddaughter) in care of  Hannah Kuczarski, 169 Justice Hill Road, Sterling, MA 01564
