Stan Wolpiuk, 65, passed peacefully surrounded by his loving family in their Trumbull home on March 1, 2018. Born and raised in Bridgeport, Stan is preceded by his parents Stan and Stella Wolpiuk and is survived by his beloved wife Mary and their children, Emily and her fiancé Chris, Stanley, Abigail Wolpiuk, Danielle, Thomas Thibodeau, Michelle, her husband Ed Alonzo and Stan’s grandchildren Maria, Hope and Quinn.
Some of Stan’s fondest memories is being a member of the 1968-69 Connie Mac World Series and his years playing in the Senior City League. Following his days of baseball, he enjoyed bowling and golf. His sports became the brothers and sisters he never had, and he made many wonderful relationships with people he met along the way, including Ed Cornwell and Charlie Riches from the Royals Pony League. When he met the love of his life, Mary, he devoted his time to coaching youth sports teams for his children, including little league and Babe Ruth Baseball. He was proud of his air time discussing sports on the Fan Radio with Mike Francesca and earned the caller name “Stan From Trumbull.” He volunteered on the Trumbull B.R. Board of directors and Bridgeport Old Timers. He was a Lector at St. Catherine Church, a member of the Knights of Columbus and a teacher of N.F.P. Stan retired from UI/PSEG, where he and his family participated in SWIM Across the Sound for many years.
As Stan battled pancreatic cancer, he was uplifted by family, friends, community organizations and his Catholic Faith. He never lost his optimism and cheerful spirit. His family is proud of his courage and grace in his final struggles. His wife Mary was heroically devoted to loving and caring for her beloved husband during his battle.
Donations can be made to The Knights of Columbus or SWIM Across the Sound in his memory.
