Chris Daniel Bruzinski, age 45, of Redding, CT passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, Thursday, December 14, 2017 at Danbury Hospital after an accident at work.
Chris was born January 19, 1972 in Bridgeport, CT son of Barbara (Kochis) Bruzinski of Redding and the late Edward Bruzinski. He graduated from Joel Barlow High School in 1990. Chris went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Sacred Heart University and then received his Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Rutgers University. Chris was an avid outdoorsman, skilled with his hands, deep with his thoughts, passionate with his emotions and fiercely loyal. He never hesitated to help a friend or family member in any way he could. His devout Catholic faith often led him to put the needs of others before his own. Chris never was drawn by the attraction of material possessions and valued friends and especially family above all else.
Donations in lieu of flowers can be made in Chris’s name to the Dorothy Day Hospitality House in Danbury or The Wounded Warrior Project.
