Although I didn’t know him that well, I did know all of his children!! I attended Wamogo Regional High School and graduated in 2006!!! I got to be close friends with Chrissy and loved spending my spare time with her and learning a lot about the farming business!! We also went on a lot of school trips together and will never forget the good times we had!!I love her mom who was very sweet to me!! I currently live in Florida with my husband Billy Ray. My heart goes out to the family as I wish them the best and so sorry for your loss! With much 💕 love!

To the entire Zagurski family ;

I was deeply saddened to learn of Tom's passing .
I went to high school with Tom .
( played setback with him almost every day )
Simply stated , Tom was a genuine , good person .
Great attitude , one of the nicest people in our graduating class.
Never ran into him after we graduated BCHS.
From his obituary , it is evident that he lived a very charitable and productive life .

R.I.P. Bronko
When we first met , I nicknamed him Bronko ( never called him Tom ) as a play on words with the famous football player Bronko Nagurski .

I've known Tom over 30 yrs working at UTC and had gotten some jobs from him and his group over the last few years , he was a hard worker and always seemed to have a smile on his face every time I saw him , I'm very sorry to hear of his passing he was definitely one of the good guys , being a Terryville resident myself i would bump into Tom from time to time around town or see him and his wife Mrs. Z. at the Terryville fair controlling the chaos , he was one of those rare people that it seemed everyone liked .

So sorry to read about Tom. I can't imagine the pain you all are feeling now. .I will always fondly remember the entire Zagurski family. Each was special in their own way. "Mr. Zagurski" always impressed me with his calm, quiet, patient, unflappable ways and all the help he gave me and the rest of the Litchfield County 4 H Shepherds.

I will forever remember the way Tom would smile...for all...his slight tilt of his head, a couple of blinks of his eyes and his smile from ear to ear. Rest in peace, Tom.

Dear Karen, Raymond, TJ and Chrissy:
Mike and I are so sorry to hear about Toms passing. We both worked with him at Hamilton Standard in Farmington and know he was a special person. We came to your house back in Feb. 2004 when you had two kittens. The female was fluffy and grey and the male was a black and white tux. We decided to take the male home...We called him Ziggy after Tom. We are forever grateful for knowing Tom. We hope your memories will help you through this very sad time....You are all in our thoughts...

Karen, I remember when you and Tom moved in next door to us so many years ago! I cannot think of any time when I did not see him with a smile on his face. I know that you are surrounded by love by family, friends and the whole community but more importantly I know Tom is smiling down on you in that loving way. Blessing to you and the family. Love,Tammy
