Bryan Stephen Golembowski
February 16, 1967 ~ January 19, 2024 (age 56) 56 Years Old
Bryan Stephen Golembowski “Iggy” passed to be with the Lord suddenly at his home with longtime companion Jodie-Lee by his side. He was born in New Haven on February 16, 1967. He is survived by the love of his life Jodie-Lee Thomas, his mother, Catherine E. Cole, his stepfather, Stephen Cole of Bethany, and his brother Gregory Golembowski of Rhode Island. Bryan is also survived by his Godmother and Aunt, Dorothy Toni of Florida, Aunt Nancy Cunningham of Wallingford and Aunt Elisabeth and Uncle Bruce Granoff of North Haven, Uncle Larry Panza, his nieces and nephew, Izzabella, Lily, and Luke, and many cousins. Bryan was predeceased by his father Germaine and stepmother Bernie Golembowski of North Carolina, his Aunt Evelyn Panza and his Uncle Richard Toni, his grandparents Bona and Anthony Golembowski of New Haven and Frederic "Red" and Dorothy Cunningham of Bethany.
Bryan was a graduate of Amity Regional High School and later attended Nyack College where he majored in Biblical Studies. Bryan was a very creative metal worker and worked as a sheet metal
fabricator. Bryan had a heart of gold; always happily offering his assistance anytime it was required. “Bryan was an amazing caregiver and partner for the past 24 years,” as Jodie fondly reminisces. He tended to her needs, due to Multiple Sclerosis, with love and compassion. He was a loving son, partner, brother, nephew, and friend. Bryan's favorite pastime had been taught to him by his dad; fishing, loving both fresh water and salt water. He loved the outdoors and fishing with his friends and was always hoping to catch the BIG one! His other outdoor hobby was gardening. He grew the best tomatoes, lettuce, and jalapeno peppers and happily shared his produce with others. Bryan enjoyed watching classic movies with Jodie and spending time with his family, good friends, and his fishing buddies.
Bryan's funeral services will be held later in the spring, a date yet to be chosen; details will follow.
Donations in Bryan's name can be made to Multiple Sclerosis should you choose.
