Brian Saluk Obituary

Brian Saluk, 63, of Berlin, CT died on August 7, 2015 surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. Brian was a man of great faith and reflected his parent's values in all he accomplished and in his concern for others. His determination, kindness and love of life inspired many during his final months, when he insisted on returning to work as construction manager for the Town of Berlin, where he was instrumental in completing several major town building projects on time and within budget. The oldest son of the late Frank and Joan (McCarthy) Saluk, Brian was born in New Britain on August 28, 1951. He graduated in 1969 from St. Thomas Aquinas High School, in New Britain. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in anthropology from the University of Connecticut, graduating with honors. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 35 years, Carol (Mulherin) Saluk, whom he met at UCONN, and his daughter Rebecca Saluk and son Aaron Saluk, all of Berlin. He also leaves behind his sister, Kathleen Saluk Failla and her husband Tom of Weston; and his brothers Bruce Saluk and wife Janet of Hudson, MA; Barry Saluk and wife Marie of Mystic; Shawn Saluk of New Britain. He is survived by his aunt, Sr. Noreen Marie McCarthy, a Maryknoll religious missionary in Tanzania; 10 nieces and nephews; 2 grand-nieces and 2 grand-nephews, among other family members. Formerly a member of St. Maurice Catholic Church, in New Britain, Brian served on the Parish Council. He was a resident of Berlin for 25 years and attended St. Paul Catholic Church, in Kensington, serving on the Building Committee and volunteering for many parish activities. Before working for the Town of Berlin he was a general contractor of custom homes for 25 years and owner of Covenant Development, LLC. Brian participated for many years in AmeriCares' "Christmas in April," providing his skill and expertise as a builder. An avid golfer, he enjoyed playing on various courses in Connecticut and Massachusetts with his golf buddies, Mike and Steve, and his brothers, Bruce and Barry. Friends are invited to greet Brian's family on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Kenney Luddy Funeral Home, 205 South Main St., in New Britian.
