Victor J. Martini
Victor J. Martini of Shelton, CT and a longtime Darien resident peacefully entered eternal rest on August 31, 2020 after a short battle with cancer. Vic was born in Greenwich, CT on August 27, 1938, the son of the late Victor and Rose Gasparino Martini. He attended schools in Greenwich, CT. He was a member of the Bricklayers Union Local 1 CT.
Vic was a loving husband, father, grandfather and a Christian man. He was a kind, generous, fun-loving guy who liked to "Celebrate Good Times."
Vic had a passion for helping others. He coached Little League in Darien, was a former member of the Noroton Heights Volunteer Fire Department, and the Knights of Columbus.
Vic was a lifelong Red Sox fan. He enjoyed playing softball, bowling, and bocce. He loved camping, fishing, antique cars, and vintage clocks. Vic loved to tinker. Our "Poppy" could fix almost anything. Above all, he cherished time spent with his children and grandchildren.

My husband and I live near Vic. We would walk daily by his unit and see him sitting on the lawn, tending to his beautiful flowers. I always told him how much I enjoyed his flowers. Whenever we walk by his home now I will see Vic tending to his flowers and say thank you for being a great neighbor. RIP
