Chester P. Lutynski
Chester P. Lutynski, 80, of New Britain, CT passed away peacefully Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at home. Chester was a New Britain native, son of the late Polish immigrants Antoni and Hedwig (Andrukiewicz) Lutynski. He proudly served our country in the US Air Force, the Air Force Reserves and later, served eight years in the Army National Guard 169th Division. Chester was a graduate of Central Connecticut State University and worked as an engineer with Pratt & Whitney Air Craft, where he retired after thirty-nine years. He was a devoted father and husband and taught his children to live out their dreams and how to be independent. Chester enjoyed hiking and camping in the forest, and spending time in New Hampshire, but his passion was classical music, specifically the works of Ludwig Van Beethoven. He will be remembered for his dry sense of humor and his generous heart and will be dearly missed.
