Ross Zettergren Death, Obituary – Following a sad accident, Ross Zettergren, 29, of Plainville, died away quietly on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at Hartford Hospital, surrounded by his family and friends. He was the youngest of Karel (Bradt) and Charles Zettergren, III’s three kids, and had lived in Plainville his entire life. After completing his high school education in Plainville, Ross enrolled at Western Connecticut State University. He started his career as an electrician in the trades, where he was renowned for his flawless work and capacity to build trusting relationships with his coworkers and clients.
A loyal friend and fierce competitor, Ross will also be remembered for his success as a multi-sport athlete and for always going above and beyond for his family and friends in times of need. He embraced each day, full of infectious energy and his ever-present smile, and continued to give the gift of life to others through organ donation. Missed beyond words by his family and infinite circle of friends, he leaves a legacy of love, laughter, and many precious memories. In addition to his parents, Karel and Chuck, and his wife Kirsten, he is survived by his brothers, Cole and his girlfriend Melissa and Dane, his wife Nina and their sons Xander and Braxton; his stepbrother and sister, Joseph and Nina Capozzi; many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and lifelong friends that he considered family.
