Thomas E. Kofsuske, 68, passed away on Nov. 22, 2019 after a courageous fight with his children by his side. Born in Meriden on May 15, 1951, to the late Ernest and Mary (Giaccherini) Kofsuske. He graduated from Wilcox Technical HS Class of 1969, with a concentration in carpentry. He was an incredibly talented and knowledgeable Contractor with a strong passion for the construction industry, especially HVAC Mechanical systems.
