Obituary: Charles Zankowski, 68

Christopher (Bunky) Charles Zankowski, 68, of Chittenden Vermont passed away in his home on Saturday July 8 2017 “after many years of fighting the Good Life.” He was born in Uxbridge of Middlesex County, England the son to Casimir and Casimira (Kowalewska) Zankowski.

Christopher leaves behind his three daughters, Chelsea Zankowski of Vail, Co., Racheal Zankowski-Brown of Chittenden, Vt., and Megan Boyden of Fort Collins, Co. He also leaves behind his niece Katrina Bressani, son in-law Christopher Brown, grandson Rylan Brown, Topher the Beagle-Hound, ex-wife Brenda Hill, and many cousins and friends.

Chris’s love of people kept him in the hospitality service industry for most of his life in Killington, Ludlow, and Nantucket. His years were filled with family camping trips, sailing, building a home for his daughters, and pulling memorable pranks on his friends. Two of his lifetime highlights were sailing around the Greek Isles in 2007 and sailing his Hobie Cat down the eastern seaboard from Nantucket to The Florida Keys. Bunky had many adventures in his life, more than most, but if you were to ask him what was the most important to him he would have said any time spent with family and friends.

Private services for family was held at Edgell Grove Cemetery in Framingham, Mass. on July 21, 2017. A celebration of life will be held on Sept. 17, 2017 at The Summit in Killington and will be open to anyone who would like to share stories of Chris with his family.
