GREENWICH, Conn. – Frank Stephen Bozza, avid golfer, sports enthusiast, voracious reader and dog lover, died Wednesday, May 18. He was 74.
Born in Greenwich, he graduated from Greenwich High School in 1959, and lettered in four varsity sports — football, swimming, hockey and baseball. He went on to graduate from Villanova University and then to work for more than 20 years at Neptune World Wide Moving before starting his own business, K & K Moving Services of Greenwich. He especially enjoyed his time with friends, whether he was golfing at the Griff, boating on the Sound, skiing in Vermont or relaxing with a cold Budweiser on his deck.
He would like to thank his ex-wife, Ann Penny (Ralph Penny) for giving him two daughters, Kristen Bozza (Larry Gellman) of Tucson, Ariz. and Dr. Kerry Bozza Funkhouser (Kurt Funkhouser) of Hailey, Idaho. He also is survived by his best friend and companion of more than 20 years, Barbara Keller of Middletown, R.I. and her family, including her three children and in particular, her sister, Nancy.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Carol; his mother and father, Dorothy and Frank Bozza; and his golden retriever, Bogey.
Visitation will be from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday at Fred D. Knapp & Son, 267 Greenwich Ave., Greenwich. A Mass of Christian burial will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Mary's Church on Greenwich Avenue. Burial will immediately follow at St. Mary's Cemetery on North Street, Greenwich.
