R. Dante Puzzuoli
R. Dante Puzzuoli, 60, a longtime resident of Stamford, passed away suddenly on, Tuesday, October 10, 2017. He was born on August 12, 1957 in Greenwich, CT.
Dante was an outstanding student athlete at Stamford Catholic High School who excelled on the gridiron and as a wrestler. In his junior year, Dante met the one and only love of his life, Jean Fulton, who he loved until his last breath. After earning his law degree from Columbia University in NYC, Dante returned to Stamford, married Jean, and had two sons. Dante was a successful, trustworthy attorney in Stamford for 35 years, specializing in real estate law. Grounded by a genuine faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, Dante demonstrated the gifts of the Holy Spirit on a daily basis. To say that Dante was loved and cherished by his family and friends would be an understatement.
His untimely death leaves a gaping hole in the heart of his family. He was the ultimate “giver”, always putting others’ needs before his own as demonstrated by the daily care he provided his beloved mother Angela, age 82. Now it is Dante’s turn to be cared for and loved by our Lord Jesus for eternity in paradise. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
Dante is survived by his loving wife, Anna Jean Puzzuoli of Stamford, their two sons Jon Fulton Puzzuoli of Norwalk and Dante Puzzuoli, Jr. of Stamford, his mother Angela Saltzinger Puzzuoli of Stamford, his sister Diana Puzzuoli of Stamford, and his brother David Puzzuoli of Ohio.
Dante is predeceased by his father Philip Joseph Puzzuoli.
