Andrew V. Repko, 82, passed away on Jan. 10, 2014 at his home in Danbury after a brief illness.

Andy was born in Danbury, a son of the late Andrew and Marion Siski Repko. He was a lifelong Danbury resident and was part of the fiber that made up this community. He attended Danbury Public Schools and was a 1950 graduate of Danbury High School. After high school he joined the Navy and served during the Korean Conflict for 3 years, 11 months and 19 days.

On his return he began his career as a roofer with Repko & Sons Roofing, which would span the next 60+ years until his retirement in 2006.

Andy was an avid scuba diver and owned and operated Repko’s Scuba Diving in the early 1960’s. He will also be remembered by many Danbury Little Leaguers for his hot dogs, popcorn and sno-cones. Andy was a true sportsman; from downhill skiing, football, racquetball and hunting in his early years. Later, in his retirement, he spent endless hours out on Long Island Sound fishing on his beloved “Reptide”. He also enjoyed taking trips to the casinos and watching the UCONN Women’s Basketball Team.

Andy is survived by his two sons: Andrew V. Repko, III of New Milford and Alan Repko and his wife, Siobhan, of Danbury. His loving grandchildren: Andrea Repko and Andrew V. Repko, IV. His sisters: Helen Wahlstrom and her husband, Dave; Nancy Piskura and her husband, Joseph; Pauline Basso and Patricia Repko. Also surviving are many nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday at 10:30am at St. Joseph Church, Danbury, with the Rev. Samuel Scott, Pastor, officiating. Burial will be at the convenience of the family.

The family will receive friends on Monday from 5pm to 8pm at the Green Funeral Home, 57 Main St., Danbury.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Andy’s memory may be made to the Regional Hospice of Western Connecticut, 39 Old Ridgebury Road, Danbury, CT 06810. For further information or to express condolences on-line, go to www.thegreenfuneralhome.com

Alan & Tito,
I just found out today about your Dad's passing. Please accept my warm condolences on the loss of a very special man. Mr. Rep was one of a kind. I've never met anyone quite like hiim and I'm sure I never will. He was bigger than life, always made me laugh, and kept me on my toes at all times. He will certainly missed by many and Danbury will never be the same without him.

Andy & Allen
I just read about the loss of your Dad. My sympathy goes out to you and your families. He was a good friend and fishing buddy. The times we spent together on LIS in the Reptide will be just some of my enjoyable memories with your Dad. He was a man who had no difficulty communicating what was on his mind, even if you did not want to hear it. Knowing Andy, I'll bet he negotiated with St. Peter about the price of admission. I will miss him, and may god bless you.
