Lacerenza Family Dedicates Farm Bench To Founder in Historic West-Side

Oct. 23, 2018 Stamford Advocate

Stamford, CT. Up the road leading from the historic west-side funeral home that still bears his name, the family of the late Richard D. Lacerenza has dedicated a safe space for the community to enjoy for decades to come.

This past Friday, members of the Lacerenza family attended the dedication of a community bench purchased in Richard’s honor. The eight-foot teak wooden bench will serve the community at “Anthony’s Arbor”, a section of Fairgate Farm. The working farm is located just off Stillwater Avenue, in the “old neighborhood”.

“He loved the west-side, and especially that neighborhood”, states Jerry Macari Jr, Richard’s grandson and President/Director at “Lacerenza’s”. Richard joins lifelong family-friend and legendary fellow west-sider, restaurateur Anthony Pellicci, with spaces dedicated to them under the pergola at Fairgate Farm.

The benches, with bronze-plated dedication plaques, are located in the space that will be used for classrooms, cooking demonstrations and other year-round activities. Fairgate Farm also has a farmer’s market in season, and features locally-grown vegetables and a whole lot more. The farm is managed by Charter Oak Communities.
