Frederick J. Fiorella – of Woburn, formerly of Trumbull, Connecticut, died February 3rd. He was the beloved husband of Janet, with whom he would have celebrated 63 years of marriage in May. 

Born in Pennsylvania, Fred was a son of the late Angelo and Rosella Fiorella. He was educated in CT and received his undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Bridgeport. 

For over 37 years, Fred taught History for Jonathan Law High School in Milford, CT.

Fred was very involved in his community, having coached and served on many boards while his children played sports. He was involved in the Trumbull Goal Tenders Hockey Association, the Trumbull AYSO Soccer League, the Trumbull Little League and the Indian Guides.  

As a teacher Fred was the Rostrum Yearbook Advisor for many years and was also involved in the Washington DC Close Up program. One of his career highlights was chaperoning a group of students to Russia in the 1980s. 

Fred enjoyed watching sports, was an avid reader and a golf enthusiast. His family however, was always his first priority and his greatest joy. He enjoyed nothing more than being in their company and supporting them at their various endeavors. He loved being a grandfather.

His positive outlook sustained him throughout his entire life through to the end. He had a kind spirit and was always generous with his time and interest. He had a wonderful smile and will be greatly missed. Farewell dear man.

    I was so sorry to hear of Mr. Fiorella’s passing. I always enjoyed his visits to the library where he would quickly pick out a book and then settle in to wait for his beloved “Jan”. Rest in peace, Mr. Fiorella and my condolences to your family.
