Parishioners of a Fairfield church are coming together to try and help a retired veteran and his disabled wife whose roof has been in shambles since Superstorm Sandy.
The couple lives at 46 Poe Court in Fairfield. They say a contractor told them their roof will not last through the winter. A blue tarp stretches across the roof because homeowner Richard Hada says it is so full of holes that it leaks every time it rains.
The 69-year-old Army veteran says his wife is disabled and confined to the second floor of their home. He says he worries the roof will collapse on her when it starts snowing this winter.
Hada says the roof has been in its current state since Superstorm Sandy struck in 2012.
John Peterson is a contractor and parishioner at the nearby Black Rock Congregational Church. He says he started a fund to pay for a new roof when he noticed the shape of it.
