Louis Fugedi, Sr., 92, of Southington, passed away on April 2, 2021 at Bradley Memorial Hospital. He was the loving husband of Dolores (Castelli) Fugedi, whom he was married to for 49 years.

Louis was born in Ashford, CT on June 16, 1928 to the late Anna (Gaspar) and Joseph Fugedi.

He graduated from the American School for the Deaf and never let his hearing impairment stop him. He was a hard-working Jack-of-all-trades who accomplished the impressive feat of building his own home from the ground up. He had a deep appreciation for the earth and its land; he enjoyed farming, growing things from the ground, and hunting. As a young man he loved horse racing and has always been an animal enthusiast, especially cats. Louis was a foodie who loved bagna càuda, shrimp, and salads. Louis was a board member, treasurer, and advocate of the Newington Senior & Disabled Center, where he enjoyed playing bingo and cards. He was also very artistic and loved to draw.

In addition to his wife Dolores, Louis is survived by his step-children who he was a second Dad to Nancy Petro-Simone and her husband Mark, and Janet Petro-Bergeron and her husband Donald, all of Southington; his grandchildren John Bergeron, Shawna Bergeron, Crista Moore, Mark Simone, Joe Simone, and Dan Simone; several great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews. Louis is predeceased by his brothers John, Joseph, and Steve Fugedi, and his sisters Mary Pekarovic and Margaret Krukoff.
