Robert E.Â Â Faurote, Jr
Robert E. Faurote, Jr, 58, of Brookfield, and formerly of Newtown, husband of Carolyn (Accardi) Faurote, died peacefully at home, November 15, surrounded by his family. Mr Faurote was born in Kingston, N.Y., January 26, 1954, a son of Robert E. Faurote, Sr, of Walden, N.Y. and Barbara (Stagg) Faurote of Wallkill, N.Y.
An area resident for the past 17 years, he and his family resided in Newtown prior to moving to Brookfield seven years ago.
A database analyst, Mr Faurote was employed by Bottom Line Technologies of Wilton, and spent his professional career doing IT work for numerous companies. He was well known and revered in his line of work.
He was an avid runner, enjoyed hiking up mountains and preferred to spend his time outdoors enjoying God’s creation.
He attended the First Assembly of God Church, Brookfield and Walnut Hill Community Church, Bethel after coming to the Christian faith 16 years ago.
Mr Faurote’s family remembers him as an exceptional father and husband, and as a great man, a brave man, and one who met his end with a dignity and grace.
His priority was always the well-being and happiness of his family. He was deeply loved by his children and wife. His sense of humor, intelligence, and eccentricity will be remembered and treasured for generations. His outlook on life and the world was unique to him, and the loss of his voice and perspective will be to the detriment of all who knew him.
In addition to his wife of 23 years and his parents, two daughters, Kelly Hosonitz. and her husband Jason, of Wake Forest, N.C., and Erin Faurote of Brookfield; two sons, Robert K. Faurote of New York, N.Y. and Zachary Faurote of Brookfield; two sisters; a granddaughter; and several nieces and nephews survive Mr Faurote.
Funeral services took place November 19. Interment will take place at the direction of the family.
