Fairfield – Judy passed away Saturday, May 29th, 2021, and Bob passed away May 30th, 2021, at their home in Fairfield, VT in the presence of their entire family.

They resided in Fairfield, VT for the past 3 years and were communicants at Holy Angels and St. Patrick’s parishes. They raised their family in their home of 53 years in Deer Park, NY (Long Island) as active members of Saints Cyril & Methodius Parish.
