Francis J. Shuhi
Concrete Foundations, Floors, etc.
Litchfield – Francis J. Shuhi, 84, of Goodhouse Road, died January 10, 2021, at Regal Care of Torrington. He was the husband of the late Patricia A. (LaBella) Shuhi.
Mr. Shuhi was born October 13, 1936 in Bantam, son of the late George S. and Margaret A. (Angelovich) Shuhi. Frank, FJ, or Iggy to some, graduated from Oliver Wolcott Technical School as a carpenter and spent the early years of his career building the concrete bridges and roads that became the highways of Connecticut. He eventually became a Construction Superintendent, and managed projects including the Children’s Museum in West Hartford, and St. Helena’s Church. His pride and joy was the concrete business he ran for over 40 years, forming and pouring hundreds of foundations all over northwestern Connecticut. He would be quick to tell you, no one built them straighter or squarer than he did! In his off-time and later years, he spent much of his time with his family, his gardens, and his pets.
He is survived by his son Wayne and wife Lori of Litchfield, his “favorite” grandchildren Kyle and Staci, and his nephews Richard Mazaik and George Shuhi. He was predeceased by a brother Robert Shuhi, and sisters Irene Mazaik and Shirley Odekirk.
