Charles (Ziolkowski) Skomorowski, 95, of West Hartford passed peacefully on December 11, 2020. He was born in Poland on June 6, 1925. He arrived in the United States through Ellis Island in 1949 after WWII and became a proud citizen in 1962. Charles was a hard worker and an avid gardener, known for growing an abundance of vegetables in his garden and maintaining meticulous landscaping in his yard. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 68 years, Paula (Berun) Skomorowski in 2019.
Charles is survived by his son Christopher Skomorowski, his wife Lisa of Simsbury and treasured granddaughter Kelsey of Hingham, MA; daughter Barbara Skomorowski of West Hartford; and grandchildren Jeff and Alisa O’Brien of Akron, OH; Chris Peck, Kyla Burke-Lazarus and great-grandson Miles of San Francisco, CA and Brian Peck of Santa Barbara, CA. A private service is planned.
The family wishes to express its deepest gratitude to Amberwoods of Farmington for the excellent care Charles received for the past two years.
