Obituary

Obituary for Matthew W. Pierog Jr.

Matthew W. Pierog, Jr., 77, of Somers, entered into Eternal Rest on Friday, July 10, 2020. He was born on August 25, 1942, the loving son to the late Matthew and Sophie (Lyko) Pierog, Sr. Matthew grew up in Enfield but was residing in Somers alongside his beloved wife of 49 years, Eloyce (Bujnicki) Pierog. He enjoyed a long career with the Danaher Tool Group as an Accountant. Matthew proudly served our country in the United States Army. He was a member of Broad Brook Angling Club, and a parishioner of All Saints Church in Somersville. He was an avid fisherman and hunter, also enjoying NASCAR racing and his monthly card games with his dearest friends. Matthew was a family man who loved the time spent with his children and grandchildren. As the family cook for celebrations and holidays, his family will miss homemade kielbasa, pickled eggs, the best ever soups, and Dziadziu's famous lasagna. Matthew will be remembered as a caring and loving husband, father and grandfather. In addition to his loving wife, Matthew is survived by three children, Matthew W. Pierog III, Christine Pierog and her partner, Mark Grinuk, and Carrie Roberts and her husband, Douglas, Jr.; four grandchildren, Mikayla and Troy Maia, and Sophie and Douglas Roberts III; a sister, Joyce Babiarz and her husband, Edward; sisters-in-law, Erleen LeDuc and her husband, Robert and Diane Bujnicki; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a brother-in-law, Gary Bujnicki.

I am going to miss Unky more than I can express (even though he called me “Moose” for the first 20 years of my life.) We got along well and he had a lot of confidence in me and my abilities – enough to fall asleep in the back seat of the car as I drove us to LL Bean. I’d barely had my license and hadn’t gone more than two exits on the highway yet, but he was cool with that “wake me up when you get to New Hampshire.” I guess he wasn’t worried since it was a company car, LOL. I share his lover for cooking. And who needed Google or Food Network when Unky was a call away? He’d consult his vast library if there was any doubt about how to prepare something. He was thoughtful when it came to keeping us fed, making sure I took home a healthy portion of his famous seafood chowder. Just this past Christmas, he pickled me shallots, because I adore them. He’d insist they buy Sam Adams if I was coming over…he just always wanted to make sure everyone had what they enjoyed. Auntie, Matt, Chris, Carrie and Mom – we’ll get through this together. Thank goodness I also make great soup, guess it’s my turn for the next holiday.
