Jimmy Gutierrez, age 45, of Bridgeport has passed away into eternal rest on July 9, 2020 in Ansonia, Connecticut; Jimmy was born in Waterbury, CT, then moved to Bridgeport where he resided for some time and then most recently to Ansonia. A joyful guy full of life, loved to be with his family, spending quality time. Everyone knew his sense of humor was great and was a joker. He enjoyed being at every party or family gathering. His personality was contagious and his heart was golden. There was nothing he wouldn't do to provide for his family and give them everything he could and more. You could visibly see the glow in his eyes & in his heart as he would stand next to his kids as they excelled in life at different stages and even more as his eldest became an alumni of UCONN! Jimmy struggled the past few years after an unfortunate incident at work, but that never discouraged him from moving on, trying & doing whatever he needed not to miss a beat! He is the beloved son of the late Jimmy Gutierrez Jr. and Minerva Rosa currently residing in the Sunshine State! He was a person who everyone noticed as being very simple and quiet until you got to know him and then you knew you had met one of the greatest guys ever! He will be sadly missed by all!
Besides his mother, Jimmy is survived by his daughters Nayja Gutierrez and Shiloh Gutierrez; his son Timothy Gutierrez, His sister Diana Gutierrez; brothers Miguel Fuster and David Paneto, and many other relatives and friends whom although grief stricken by the sudden passing, they know God embraced his arrival in the heavens above.
