Miklos (“Mickey”) Roger Csapilla, 62, passed away at his home on June 10, 2023 surrounded by his family. Mickey was born on December 10, 1960 in Basel, Switzerland. He started his adventures in 1961, when him and his native Hungarian family traveled to the US, stopping in Michigan and settling in Stamford, CT. He had this adventurous spirit from a young age and was known for his zest for life.He loved animals, nature, and exploring. He was a gifted, competitive athlete in the NASTAR Alpine Ski Racing in Vermont, Junior Tennis League of Stamford and Stamford High football team. His adoration of swimming, skiing and dirt bikes lead to lifelong passions of scuba diving, snowmobiling and motorcycles which he shared with his children.
He proudly dedicated four years of his life to the United States Marines, where he honorably served and became a skilled airplane mechanic. After his military service, Mickey embarked on a successful entrepreneurial journey, becoming a respected business owner and talented carpenter in Stamford. His dedication, perseverance, and strong work ethic were evident in every endeavor he pursued.
Mickey will be deeply missed by his children Jessica Langan, Jaime Leyerzapf, Samantha Csapilla, Shannon Csapilla, and Miklos Jr., his grandchildren Robert, Thomas, and Graham, his sisters Adrienne Muniz and Yvette Belmont, and a multitude of relatives, friends, and colleagues.
