Kenneth S. Josselyn
Kenneth S. Josselyn, 70, of New Milford, CT, was granted the "peace and quiet" he deserved on March 23, 2018.
Born on January 12, 1948, Ken was the eldest son of Margaret "Peg" and Carlton "Kyper" Josselyn of Westport, CT. He is survived by his daughters, Sarah Torregrossa of Coral Springs, FL, and Jessica Josselyn of Pompano Beach, FL; his siblings Cynthia Landin of Newtown, CT, and Wayne Josselyn of Bridgeport, CT; his son-in-law Adam Torregrossa; and his grandson Joseph Torregrossa. He was devoted to his family, especially to his daughters and grandson.
Ken was a well-loved, fun, easy-going guy. He graduated with honors from Staples High School in Westport, CT, and was best known for playing guitar in the popular local band "The Reverbs." Ken went on to pursue a bachelor's and master's degree in accounting from Bates College (also his father's alma mater) and Northeastern University, respectively. Ken later became a Certified Public Accountant.
Ken was a loyal employee during his 40+ year career. He put a significant amount of time into his work—especially during tax season—and his colleagues were considered family and friends. As a partner of Clavette Josselyn & Co. LLC for more than 20 years, his friendship with Alan Clavette and other co-workers was an important part of his life.
Outside of work, Ken enjoyed the simple life, but lived it well! He was a coin collector and amateur photographer, but spent most of his time researching and collecting guns. He would frequently go to Shooters Pistol Range, have "coffee meetings" at Housatonic Valley Firearms, drink Budweiser and coffee with friends at his favorite local spots, and listen to classic rock (especially ZZ Top). He also enjoyed relaxing at home with his cat Bimmer while watching sports and crime shows.
There are no words to describe how much Ken will be missed. His family asks that you keep his memory alive by sharing stories, laughs, and memories of him.
