Kenneth F. Spodnik, age 83, of Milford, beloved husband of Peggy (Sweeney) Spodnik, passed away peacefully on June 6, 2021, surrounded by his loving family at Bishop Wicke Health & Rehabilitation Center in Shelton, CT. 

Born in Bridgeport on October 21, 1937, the son of the late John and Dorothy Spodnik, he was a longtime Milford resident. Ken graduated from Stratford High School and served in the CT National Guard, where he was honorably discharged as a Sergeant.  Ken was an electrician with I.B.E.W.

Ken and Peggy raised their two sons in Milford and enjoyed family gatherings and vacations with them. His greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends. He was proud of his chosen occupation, especially when his two sons followed him into the electrical business.

Spodnik and his wife Heather of Milford, two cherished granddaughters Caroline Perez (Joseph Hunter) and Elizabeth Sousa and her husband Matthew, three beloved great-grandsons Brayden, Miguel and Logan, a sister Linda Skarupa of Shelton, several nieces and nephews and many extended family members and friends.
