Stephen A. Zembko Jr., of Southington, entered into rest on Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017, after a brief illness. He was the devoted husband of Margaret Shigo-Zembko. Stephen was born in New Britain, son of the late Stephen and Estelle (Kapustinski) Zembko.
Stephen served his country with honor and pride with the U.S. Marine Corps. He worked as a tool and die maker, retiring in 2004 from Companion Industries in Southington. Stephen was an enthusiastic outdoorsman and patriot, but nothing came close to the love he had for his family.
He was the beloved father of Robert Zembko of Bristol and Deborah Faustin and her husband, Nathan, of Southington; and is also survived by his cherished grandchildren, Sarah Gadarowski and Joseph Zembko; and his brothers, David (Nancy) Zembko of Manchester and Michael Zembko of Southington.
