NAUGATUCK – Daniel R. Czyzyk, aka Daniel Chesiak, 74, passed away on Oct. 26, 2020.

He was born on April 5, 1946 in Shelton. Dan had maintained a very skilled business in pistol gun grip making, where he had the luxury of working at his private home. Dan had the pleasure of company of his long lost dog Cartmin for many years, which he cherished dearly.

Along with his most loyal and devoted friend Roberta, where they shared many years of good memories, Dan enjoyed his ’76 Eldorado, fishing, cigars, and most of all his “adopted” Adamaitis, Montana, and Young families, which he often referred to them as “his in-laws.” We will truly miss Dan.

Thanks to the help of VITAS Home Hospice Care-Tami, Megan, Theresa, and Layla, who helped Roberta make his wish come true to peacefully pass at his beautiful home with his loved ones by his side. May he find peace and comfort now.

Memorial contributions may be mad in Dan’s name to CARES Animal Rescue, 115 Silvermine Road, Seymour, CT 06483.

Funeral services are private.
