Mr. Carl Rykoski

June 30, 1972 — February 28, 2023

SOUTHINGTON – Carl P. Rykoski, age 50 of Plainville, passed away unexpectedly on February 28, 2023, at Bradley Memorial Hospital.

Carl was born in Waterbury, CT on June 30, 1972, the beloved son of Ted Sr. and Nicole (MarcAurele) Rykoski. Carl graduated from Blessed Sacrament Grammar School, Holy Cross High School, and Quinnipiac University. He also attended Temple University as a post-graduate. Carl loved deep sea fishing with his father, brother, and friends. In his younger years, he often got seasick, but that never stopped him from going. He loved all animals and had a special connection with Buddy II. Carl often said that after Buddy died, it was this dog who sent Woody along as his replacement to help heal his broken heart. Carl lived with the pain of being a lifelong Red Sox fan. Above all, Carl was a kind and gentle man who will live on in the memories of all the people he loved and who loved him.

Left to cherish his memory and honor his legacy along with his parents are his brother Ted Jr. & his wife Christa, and their son TJ. He also leaves behind the love of his life and caregiver, Laura Hall. Carl is also survived by his aunts & uncles Diane LeDuc, Doris Schadee, Denise & Danny Raskin, Sharon & Gary Bouffard, Donald & Nancy MarcAurele, Cheryl MarcAurele, Marcia & Tom Blinstrubas, and Katherine & Rick Scranton and many, many cousins.
