ENFIELD – Joseph J. Kozaczka, 97, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at Baystate Medical Center. Born in the Thompsonville section of Enfield, son of the late John and Julia (Portenski) Kozaczka, he was a lifelong resident of Enfield. Joseph was a courier for the former Thompson Associates Printing Company and previously was employed by Bigelow Sanford Carpet Company until they closed operations in Enfield. He was a volunteer for the Thompsonville Fire Department, a communicant of St. Raymond of Peñafort Parish (St. Patrick’s Church) and a veteran of World War II, serving in the USCG Merchant Marine and the US Navy in the Atlantic and MidEast theaters. Joe was a kind, and gentle soul with a great sense of humor and quick wit. His wife, Carmelina “Carmy”, died in 2010. One of Joe’s favorite activities with Carmy was to go out for coffee and a pastry. He and Carmy rarely passed a coffee shop without stopping. He is also predeceased by two brothers, Edmund and John Kozaczka; two sisters, Katherine Rodzen and Jane Rostkowski; and a nephew, Liborio DiMaria, Jr. He leaves a nephew, Charles DiMaria of GA, six nieces, Paula Falkowski, of NH, Laurie Seno of WI, Gail DiMaria of CA, Lynn Mumblo and Hollis Krause, both of CO and Julie Stahlhut of VA, two great-nieces, Amanda McBride of GA and Julia Falkowski of CA. Joe also leaves his dear friends Alva, Tony, Catherine, Adriana and Carla Torre of Enfield. The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff of Home Helpers and Joe’s caregivers, Kathy and Lana, for their loving attention and expertise. Memorial donations may be made to St. Raymond of Peñafort Parish, 64 Pearl Street, Enfield, CT 06082. There will be a private graveside service at St. Patrick’s King Street Cemetery. Browne Memorial Chapels is assisting the family. For online condolences, please visit

Joe and I were across the street neighbors for several years and the description in his obit that he was a kind and gentle soul with a quick wit and great sense of humor fit him to a tee- a pleasure to know.
