BEACON FALLS — Mark J. Georgia, age 64, unexpectedly entered peaceful rest on Dec. 27, 2022, at Waterbury Hospital, with his family by his side.
Mark was born in Derby on Aug. 9, 1958, son of the late Louis and Julie Kyle Georgia. He was a graduate of Shelton High School. Mark and his loving wife, Karen Loesche Georgia, were residents and raised their family in Beacon Falls for more than 30 years.
In his earlier years, “Coach Mark” spent countless hours coaching his children on the baseball field, and always watching his New York Mets and New York Jets. Mark was the president of Fascomp Electronic Hardware based out of Orlando and Naugatuck.
When he was not working, he was with his family giving grampy hugs, golfing with his son, poolside with a cigar, or drinking Schaefer beer during his Shelton shuffles with friends.
He was a selfless man, always taking care of others. Everywhere he went, he knew someone, and would tease them relentlessly with the same corny jokes. “Marky-Mark” will be lovingly missed by all.
In addition to his wife Karen, Mark leaves to cherish his memory, a daughter, Ashley Scagliarini (David), a son, Kyle M. Georgia, all of Beacon Falls; brothers, Brian Georgia and Paul Georgia, both of Seymour; sisters, Julie Ficano of Shelton, and Johanna Georgia of Ansonia; grandchildren, Bryce, Brooks, and Gia Scagliarini; along with several nieces, nephews, and countless friends.
He was predeceased by his brothers, Robert, Louis and David Georgia.
Relatives and friends were invited to greet the family and pay their respects on Monday, Jan. 2, 2023, from 3 to 6 p.m. in the chapel of Spinelli-Ricciuti/Bednar-Osiecki Funeral Home, 62 Beaver St. in Ansonia. On Tuesday morning, all were invited to attend his funeral at 10 a.m. by meeting directly at St. Michael Church, 25 Maple Ave., Beacon Falls, for a Mass of Christian Burial. Interment was to immediately follow in Mount St. Peter Cemetery in Derby.
