Lou Stefanski was a 1979 graduate of Stonington High School.  He was a tremendous athlete who excelled at football, basketball and golf and is a member of the Stonington High School Athletic Hall of Fame.  Lou will be remembered for being a devoted husband, father, grandfather and most importantly, a wonderful person.  

Despite all of his athletic accomplishments, Lou had a quiet, unassuming personality and always conducted himself with extreme humility and politeness.  Lou was also an accomplished artist and guitar player, both of which were self-taught. 

Lou most enjoyed giving back to others what he learned thorough his life experiences.  He loved teaching golf, coaching softball and was a very thoughtful person who gave much of himself expecting nothing in return.  One former teammate of Lou’s in high school summed up what everyone thought of Lou, “In times of stress or anxiety, everyone knew it would turn out OK because we had Lou on our side”.
