Wolcott – Pat Stafstrom, 29, passed away on Saturday, November 14th, 2020.
Pat was born in Waterbury on December 28, 1990 to Eric Stafstrom and the late Donna (Dunphy) Stafstrom. He was a graduate of Wolcott High School and earned his degree in Criminal Justice from WSCU. Pat was an animal lover that enjoyed fishing, board games, comics, and playing Dungeons and Dragons. He wrote short horror stories under the pen name Victor King, most notably “What Hurricane Sandy Uncovered” which has gotten significant coverage on podcast channels and YouTube.
Pat was known, more than anything, for his quick and often blunt sense of humor and an ability to make anyone laugh in tense situations.
Pat will be deeply missed by his father, Eric Stafstrom, of Wolcott; his brother, Mike Stafstrom, and his wife, Amy, of Waterbury; his niece/goddaughter, Flynn; his surviving grandmother Maureen Dunphy of Waterbury and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He will also be deeply missed by his close knit group of friends from Highschool and college, some of whom he has been friends with for decades.
He was predeceased by his mother, Donna Stafstrom in 2019.
A walk-through visitation will be held on Thursday, November 19 from 5 p.m. 8 p.m. at Woodtick Memorial, 420 Woodtick Memorial, Wolcott. Masks and social distancing are required.
