  1. Melissa, Mitchell and Stuart,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. Melissa, as you know I have known your brother since Saugatuck School and we were good friends for many years and we served together in the Westport Volunteer Fire Department. I will forever remember the good times we shared and the occasional “mischief” we got into.

    On behalf of the Westport Volunteer Fire Department, my wife and myself, our sincerest condolences to you and our prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    Bob drove me to my board meetings in Newington every month for several years. We hadn’t stayed in touch since his relocated to Danbury.

    Warmest regards, LuAnn (& Bob) Giunta
