Clinton Warren Chizinski
February 22, 1984 ~ February 16, 2015
Clinton Warren Chizinski, age 30, passed away peacefully on his own terms, on Sunday, February 16 in Norwalk, CT. He was born February 22, 1984 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Stamford, CT.—never one to wait around, he arrived a month early. Right from the start, he marched to the beat of a different drummer and never looked back.
He was the first one in the Wilton schools to sport green hair and show up for baseball tryouts with a braid. We loved him all the more for his expressions of individuality, his infectious good humor and incredibly engaging personality.
He graduated from Fairfield University with a degree in international business and after several years in the corporate world, he started his own company. In Clint’s words, “My greatest passion and mission is to continuously learn and grow, striving to bring out the absolute best in myself and those around me. I try to pass on what I’ve learned to help others in every area of life – mental, physical, spiritual, and business. I love to write, teach, and speak but it’s been a long road to get to where I am today…”
His interests were varied and many and he applied himself to each with the same vigor and enthusiasm. In high school, he was a star south paw pitcher and loved baseball and the camaraderie that came with it; he was an avid reader and left behind a library’s worth of books to prove it; he loved writing and filled many journals with his thoughts; his workout regimen is legendary and included Crossfit competitions and jiu-jitsu; he loved snowboarding in winter and basking in the sun in summer (using no sun screen—much to his mother’s chagrin).
He is survived by his parents, Tom and Gale Chizinski, Falmouth, MA; his brother, Brett Chizinski, Somerville, MA;, and his soul mate and partner, Alexandra (Lexy) Brand, Long Island, NY, along with aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many dear friends who will forever care about him and miss him.
You can pay your respects to our beloved Clinton on Friday, February 20 between 5 and 8 p.m. at Collins Funeral Home, 92 East Avenue, Norwalk, CT. In lieu of flowers, please extend an act of kindness, volunteer, or send a donation to a cause that is close to your heart—Clint would want that. Most recently, Operation Hope in Fairfield is a cause that he supported.
