About Newell A. Stamm (1927-2018)
Newell A. Stamm was a founding member and past president (1979-1981) of UCAC and co-owner of Stamm Construction in Newington. He was also a firefighter with the Newington Volunteer Fire Department for over thirty years and a commissioner of the Metropolitan District. Newell was chosen as the 1988 businessperson of the year by the Newington Chamber of Commerce. He was well known in the utility construction industry in Connecticut but even moreso he was respected as a businessman and cherished as a friend.
