Edward Dobosz, 60, of Newington, unexpectedly passed away at home on Wednesday, October 28, 2020.
Edward was born on January 28, 1960, and was raised in New Britain, where he attended local schools. From an early age, Ed excelled at learning, his teachers often telling his parents how impressed they were with Ed’s quick mind and innate intelligence. After graduating from the University of Hartford, Ed was invited to join the prestigious Mensa Society in recognition of his high IQ. Ed declined the invitation as he felt it was too serious and pretentious for his casual, happy-go-lucky lifestyle. Ed had a kind heart and a wonderful sense of humor. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Ed is survived by two sisters, Nela Dobosz and Christine Nelson; a brother and sister-in-law, Henry and Claire Dobosz; a niece, Jaime Gleba, and nephew, Cole Dobosz; his former wife, Mary McQueeney, as well as several aunts and uncles, numerous cousins, and many long-time friends. Ed also leaves behind his cherished cat, Heather, who is bereft without her “human”. Ed was predeceased by his parents, Czeslaw and Anna (Sulecki) Dobosz
