Mark Brezosky

Obituary of Mark R. Brezosky

Mark Robert Brezosky, age 52, of Shelton, beloved husband of Maryann Argianas Brezosky, passed away unexpectedly after a fall at home on Thursday, August 19, 2021. 

Born in Winchester, MA on November 7, 1968, he was the son of Robert and Jo-Ann Dreyer Brezosky. Mark had been a Shelton resident for most of his life and with his wife MaryAnn loved to spend time at their beach home in Milford. Mark graduated from St. Joseph's High School and furthered his education at Sacred Heart University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Accounting.

Mark started his career at People's Bank and worked in several departments before discovering his area of expertise in Commercial Lending. He held valued leadership positions in commercial lending over the years, eventually progressing to Managing Director, SVP of Commercial Real Estate Lending Services at Astoria Bank. 

Mark was also an entrepreneur who was never afraid to take a calculated risk. At one point in his career, he ventured into his own business and was the co-owner of Partners Fuel which is still in business today. 

Mark was a longtime member of the Miamogue Yacht Club in Bridgeport and was an avid boater, hunter, and especially fisherman. Early morning fishing trips on his boat “Impulse” with his Dad and friends was one of Mark’s favorite ways to spend a Sunday. He also loved vacationing on Long Beach Island every summer with his closest family and friends.

Mark treasured every moment he spent with his family and friends – especially cooking at home with them and hosting his favorite day of the year, Christmas Day. 

His loyal black Labrador Odin, and his friendly cat Jack were always by his side.

Mark was an avid sports fan, cherishing the time he spent cheering on his son, Michael, during his baseball games. He also treasured spending time with his son, Jason, riding ATVs.  Mark’s favorite teams were the NY Yankees and the NY Giants. 

Mark loved music, and most of all making people laugh. He was known by those closest to him for his quick wit and dry sense of humor, often quoting lines from 70s TV shows and cartoons at just the right moment.

In addition to his parents, Bob and Jo-Ann, he leaves behind his wife and best friend, Maryann, and sons, Jason and Michael; his sister, Lisa Shomsky (David Shomsky); and his brother, Robert Brezosky (Maurice Neuhaus). He also leaves behind nieces, Kristie and Carly Shomsky (his God Daughter) and Stephanie Argianas, as well as his brother-in-law and “walking buddy”, Gary Argianas; and nephew, Garett Argianas.

The family takes solace in knowing Mark was able to donate his organs to help others in need.
