Obituary for Peter James "P.J." Horoszko

Peter James "P.J."  Horoszko
P.J. Horoszko, 27, a graduate of Newtown High School and resident of Brooklyn, New York died unexpectedly on Wednesday, March 2. P.J. was a poet, musician, son, friend and genius. Those who knew P.J. know that he was a hard man to define. His energy and charisma were unmatched. He was sincerely interested in everyone he met and always came away with their trust and life story. A man of many talents, P.J. was an accomplished writer, speaker and musician drawing his spirt from other brilliant souls such as Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.

P.J. attended Hunter College and would remain in New York as a fast-rising editor with Picador Press. A city boy through and through, the beautiful chaos of New York appealed to him and fueled his creativity. He was beloved by his parents Lynda Weber of Newtown and Peter Horoszko of Greenwich, his brother Jamie Horoszko of Newtown and his sister Katya Horoszko of Manhattan, NY, as well as by his grandparents Jim and Shirley Weber of Pittsburgh, PA and many other family members. His absence has created a giant hole in the universe and he will be missed by the multitudes that he touched.

Relatives and friends may call at the Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main St. Newtown CT on Saturday, March 5 between the hours of 11am and 1pm. A Memorial Service will follow at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Newtown Youth and Family Services, 15 Berkshire Rd., Sandy Hook, CT 06482 To leave an online condolence visit
