Kenneth Joseph Grindrod, born August 28, 1930, to the late Leo and Cecelia McArvel Grindrod, reunited eternally with the love of his life, Matilda "Tilly" and his son, Curtis, on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, peacefully with his loving family by his side. Ken served his country in the Navy for nine years, criss crossing the oceans before settling down in Fairfield, CT where he lived for the following 50 years. Ken was the owner of Westfair Supermarket in Westport, CT before becoming the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds for The Fairfield Public Schools. Once retired, Ken was warmly welcomed into the Mitchell's family as their maintenance man for their store in Westport, CT. After his wife passed, Ken dedicated his days to enjoy his passion for gardening. Ken is predeceased by both his parents, his sisters, Joan Kazmercyk and Dorothy DeLorenzo; as well as his two brothers, Wilbert and Clayton. Ken leaves behind his sister, Gloria Farrell, his son, James Grindrod and his wife, Mari Elena; daughter, Lisa Fernez and her husband, Michael. His grandchildren, Stephanie, Michael, Derek and Olivia will miss him deeply. The family would like to thank all those who sent their love and prayers Ken's way with special thanks to those who took such loving care of him while at home, especially The Connecticut Hospice Home Care. Calling hours will be held on Friday, December 16, 2016 from 4-8 PM in the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home, 1209 Post Road, in Fairfield Center. A prayer service will take place at 7:30 PM. All other services will be held privately. To order flowers online, for travel directions, or to sign his guest register, please visit
