Tadeusz Piatek

Bridgeport - Tadeusz Piatek age 95 of Bridgeport, beloved husband of 58 years to the late Bertha Sibiski Piatek died peacefully on May 13, 2020 in Florida. Born in Wyszkow, Poland, he was the son of the late Jan and Antonina Piatek. Taken at the young age of 17, he was imprisoned in a labor camp during World War II by the Germans. In April 1945, Ted was rescued by the American army, which recruited him for guard duty. Ted was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army, in 1949, before emigrating to the U.S. where he was proud and honored to become a United States citizen.

Ted worked as a Scrapper for 35 years at Bridgeport Machines where he was affectionately known as Mr. Friday. (Piatek translates to Friday in English). He was a devote Catholic, enjoyed bowling, watching baseball, avid gardener, and loved to try his luck at scratch off lottery tickets. Most of all he loved spending time and visiting with family and friends. He will be greatly missed.

Survivors include his two daughters Carol Almeida and husband Frank of Florida, Donna Lorenzo of Bloomfield, three grandsons Nicholas, Justin and Michael Lorenzo, several nieces and nephews.

Due to the current situation and social gathering restrictions, all funeral services will be private with interment to take place in Gate of Heaven Cemetery Trumbull. There will be a Memorial Mass in St. Michael the Archangel Church in Bridgeport and St. Andrew Church in Stuart, Fl. At a later date. The Commerce Hill Funeral Home, 4798 Main St. Bridgeport has been entrusted with the services. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to Treasure Coast Hospice, 1201 SE Indian Street, Stuart, FL 34997. The family would like to thank the staff at Discovery Village of Stuart FL for the loving and compassionate care he received along with the team of caring professionals from Treasure Coast Hospice.

Dear Donna, I am so sorry to hear the news of your dad's passing. I lost my dad in 1999 and my mom in 2011 and every day I still think of them and miss them. But as with your dad, there is comfort in knowing that they got to live a long, blessed life and that one day you will see them again. I think of you often and would love to meet up with you sometime. Wishing you, Carol, and your beautiful family peace and healing. Your friend, Tina I. Kelly
