Brian M. Zahorsky

July 5, 1957 ~ March 13, 2021 (age 63)


Brian M. Zahorsky, age 63, a lifelong Bridgeport resident passed away Saturday, March 13, 2021 at The Connecticut Hospice, Branford. Born in Bridgeport on July 5, 1957, he was the son of the late George S. and Florence Fitzgibbons Zahorsky. Brian was a Bridgeport Police officer 1985-1993 and later a CDL truck driver working for Santa and Kaufman Fuel Companies. He is survived by his sister, Catherine and her husband Kevin, brother, David, nephews and niece, Steven, David Jr., Shane, Brett and Emily. He was predeceased by his brother Timothy and his nephew Brian. He enjoyed golf, his pets, long neighborhood walks greeting neighbors, feeding the wild animals in his yard, and his favorite sports teams – the Yankees and Cowboys. He was particularly proud that as a young man, his father who was an accomplished pilot, taught him to fly.

Brian had a humble wisdom and quiet faith in God that sustained him throughout his life and that shown through him to touch the hearts of others.  He enjoyed and appreciated the comfort of his home and the love shared with his family and will be cherished as a loyal and loving son, brother, uncle and friend.  His beautiful smile and twinkle in his eyes would lighten your heart.
