Daniel J. Fitzpatrick, Jr., 84, of Glastonbury and West Harwich, MA passed away on Friday, February 26, 2021 at home. Daniel was recently predeceased by his beloved wife of over 60 years, Margaret M. (Flint) Fitzpatrick. Born in New Britain, Daniel was the son of the late Daniel J. and Olga (Baranowski) Fitzpatrick. He was a long time Glastonbury resident, moving from Newington 48 years ago. Daniel attended Central Connecticut State University (known at the time as Teachers College of Connecticut) and was a member of their last undefeated football team. After attending college, Daniel enlisted in the Army from 1956-1958. Daniel was an entrepreneur and industry leader, owning Spectro Lume, Inc. in the commercial and industrial lighting business for more than forty years. He was also one of the original founders and president of the Glastonbury Basketball Association. His vision for the GBA was to allow kids in the community to play basketball recreationally through high school. He is survived by his daughter Maura Paulekas and her husband Wayne of Glastonbury; his son Daniel J. Fitzpatrick III and his wife Alice of New Jersey; his daughter Megan Lucey and her husband Sean of New York; his nine grandchildren, Amy, Kevin and Ryan Paulekas, Daniel J. Fitzpatrick IV and his wife Hannah, Michael Fitzpatrick and his wife Melissa, Caitlin Fitzpatrick, John Fitzpatrick and his wife Olivia, Anya and Kyra Lucey; and his four great grandchildren; Hailey, Charlotte and Vincent Fitzpatrick and Daniel J. Fitzpatrick V. Daniel was predeceased by his sisters Marianne F. Kelsey and Nancy K. Fitzpatrick. Daniel found great joy in his summers at the Cape, spending hours floating in the ocean, reading books on the deck, and enjoying time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren at the beach.

My sympathies to the Fitzpatrick family for their loss. Dan was a generous and giving gentleman. I must admit I was a little intimidated by him as I first started working with him however this turned into a wonderful friendship. Dan went out of his way to mentor me and give me insight into many business situations.
He will be missed by his family, friends and an entire industry. RIP Dan, for a life well lived.
Deep regards,
Marile & Bill Astary
