October 21, 1970 – November 26, 2018
Griswold-Kenneth Michael Fitzgerald of Griswold, age 48, died on Monday, November 26, 2018, after being involved in an automobile accident in Griswold. He was born in Groton, CT, on October 21, 1970. He was the son of Thomas and Adrienne Fitzgerald. He is survived by his father Tom Fitzgerald of Uncasville, sisters Sharon Linskens of Uncasville, and Maureen Manus of Blue Ridge, VA, and brothers Tom Fitzgerald, Jr. of Newington and Kevin Fitzgerald of Monroe, NJ. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother Adrienne and brother Patrick. Ken graduated from Montville High School in 1988 and the University of Connecticut in 1994, with a degree in Civil Engineering. After college, and until recently when he left Jacobs Engineering to go into self-employment, he worked for numerous large engineering companies working on unique construction projects involving bridges, pharmaceutical laboratories, and large-scale building construction and refurbishment at the University of Connecticut. His favorite off-time related activity was acquiring deteriorating properties and restoring those to contemporary entities. Some of the projects he was most proud of were the design and construction of his own house on Hopeville Pond, the development of 14 condominiums using the original 1831 Jewett City Bank as the centerpiece, and restoring a number of area mill houses dating from the 1850’s. Ken was a free-spirited, self-motivated individual, who was known throughout the community by his smile and would freely give his time to mentor and assist others less fortunate. He enjoyed fishing, skiing and traveling.
