Matthew H. Opozda Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of "Matt" Opozda announces his passing on February 12, 2014, at the young age of 28. Born on September 8, 1985 to David and Mary Opozda of Plantsville, CT, Matt was a Southington High School Class of 2004 graduate and attended CCSU. Matt had been employed at Stop & Shop and Shop Rite, both Southington locations. A profound reader by choice and history enthusiast, there were few times Matt would not have an answer to a question posed to him. His potential was boundless; his knowledge was great beyond his years. Matt's relaxation came from music, especially listening to the Beatles, playing his keyboard or strumming his guitar. In addition to his parents, he is survived by sister Kelsey Opozda, godfather Richard Opozda, godmother Laurie Tubman and godson Adam Tubman. He also leaves behind many aunts, uncles and cousins from the Suprin, Tubman and Rosol families. Matt always had a special place in his heart for the Carlone family. He cherished his wonderful memories made with Auntie Lenore, Uncle Mike, and cousins Amanda and David. He treasured his friendships with David, Chris and Paul. Matt had an enormous love for dogs, especially his Maggie and Beau. Calling hours will be held on Sunday, Feb. 23, 2014 from 12 - 2pm followed by a memorial service at DellaVecchia Funeral Home, 211 N. Main St. (Rt. 10) in Southington. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Matt's memory to Bread for Life, P.O Box 925, Southington, CT 06489. For online condolences and directions visit www.dellavecchiafh.com
