Obituary for Joseph Shaughnessy

Joseph  Shaughnessy
Joseph Wayne Shaughnessy
Kaman Areospace Retiree

MORRIS - Joseph Wayne Shaughnessy, age 64, passed away on July 12, 2017, at Yale New Haven Hospital. He was the husband of Maria Shaughnessy.

He was born on Dec, 9, 1952 in Torrington Conn., son of George Arthur and Mildred Shaughnessy. He later graduated from Litchfield High School in 1971. Joe started his career at Ovation Guitars working for Kaman for over 35 years retiring as a packaging engineer.

He was a well known musician, vocalist, harmonica, rhythm and blues guitar player for the bands Ol' Croc and Blue Attire. Quick with a joke, Joseph often made everyone laugh and smile from his humor and endless puns. Joe enjoyed nature, deep sea fishing, books, movies and fireworks displays frequently smoking fish or dehydrating fruit or jerky.

Joseph was pre-deceased by his father, George Arthur Shaughnessy Sr. and his brother, George Arthur Shaughnessy Jr. and is survived by his son, Brian Shaughnessy; ex-wife, Maria Shaughnessy; mother, Mildred Shaughnessy; and sister, Sue Gioia.

Joe extended his love and appreciation towards his friends, family, and coworkers endlessly telling great stories, creating innovative meals, being a true friend while reflecting back about distant loved ones, and making you laugh while in his company.

Calling hours will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 20, 2017, at Rowe Funeral Home, 283 Torrington Road, Litchfield. Funeral Services and Burial will be private.
