Obituary for Zbigniew Butkiewicz

Zbigniew “Zbyszek” Butkiewicz of Chelmsford, passed away on May 6, 2024, at the age of 45.

Zbigniew was born in Suwalki, Poland on December 10, 1978, and moved to Chelmsford in 1988 along with his family to escape communist Poland.

Zbigniew, or "Z" as many friends called him, was a graduate of Chelmsford High School, class of 1997. He had a lifelong passion for cars and went on to work in the automotive industry in various roles for many years, and always had a project he was working on at home. He loved music, especially 90’s music, dogs, and traveling back to Poland to visit family.

A beloved daddy, son, brother, and friend, he will be remembered for his kind heart, his sarcastic sense of humor, and his giving nature, helping anyone who needed it without question.
