Kondratowicz: Paul D. Kondratowicz, 89, passed away July 28, 2020 at home in the comfort  of his loving family at his lifelong home in Waterford. He was the son of the late Konstantine and Mary (Shablinsky) Kondratowicz , born Sept 27,1930 in Norwich.
Paul attended local schools and graduated from N.F.A. His nickname was Slug.
He enlisted in the U.S. Airforce, serving in the Korean War as a Military Police Officer stationed in England with an honorable discharge. Upon returning he worked at Lehigh Gas where he met the love of his life, Hyacinth Locantore, on a service call.  Paul said it was love at first sight. Six months later they were united in marriage on April 27,1957 at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church. Their beautiful reception was at the Mohegan Hotel costing a total of $281.00.
Paul (P.K.) worked for the former S.N.E.T. as a lineman and installer. Everyone loved his charismatic personality. He enjoyed his career and retired after 35 years. He was a member of the Pioneers Club, a league member at the New London Ten Pin Bowling Alley where he bowled  a “perfect game of 300”, and enjoyed playing golf at local clubs. He took great pride in his home, either hammering, drilling, mowing and sometimes often mopping to keep the house and yard pristine.  He played sang and danced Polish music and was proud of his heritage. His cheerful whistling will be missed.
Besides his beloved Hyacinth, who he cherished for 63 years , he is survived by his 3 children, Paula Ball of Uncasville, Lisa Faber of Waterford , and Stephen Kondratowicz of Ledyard, and eight grandchildren: Jennifer, Cristina, T.J. , Lacey, David, Eric, Stephen, Glen, and 4 great grandchildren.  He was also adored by many nieces and nephews .  He was predeceased by his 7 siblings Anna, Alice,  Viola, Helen, Mary, Walter and Stanley . He enjoyed every minute with his family and planned memorable vacations yearly.   Bobop continued his sense of adventure and fun with his grandchildren and was proud of all of their achievements.
A funeral mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday, Aug. 3 at 11 am at Saint Paul’s Church, 170 Rope Ferry Rd, Waterford. Entombment will follow at Saint Mary’s Mausoleum with military honors.
