Obituary for Samuel J Limanni
WILLIMANTIC – Samuel J. Limanni, 95, of 19 Russ Rd, husband of Gloria E. Limanni, died on Monday, February 1, 2010, at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown after a brief illness.
            On Feb. 16, 1914 he was born in Pawcatuck, Connecticut, the son of Antonio and Francesca (Maiorana) Limanni.  Samuel grew up in Willimantic and was a graduate of Windham High School.  After high school, he began a career in the newspaper and printing business, working as a linotype operator at the Willimantic Chronicle.  In March of 1942 he enlisted in the United States Army, serving his country during World War II.  After being honorably discharged from the Army in Nov. of 1945, he returned to Willimantic, and on May 25, 1946 he was married to Gloria E. LaVoie at St. Mary Church in Willimantic.  He also resumed his career at the Chronicle, where he worked for several years before taking a job with The Norwich Bulletin.  He later worked at Bond Press in East Hartford, and was last employed at the former Ace Printery until his retirement.  He was a life long parishioner of St. Joseph Church in Willimantic and was active for many years with the Knights of Columbus. 
            Samuel was a loving husband, father and grandfather and was known for his warm smile and his enthusiasm for life.  He enjoyed bicycling and walking, but his real passion was playing tennis, having played the sport well into his eighties and even took along his racquet whenever he traveled.
            In addition to his wife, Gloria, he is survived by three daughters, Sharon Gadarowski, and husband Frank, of Forest, VA, Susanne Marshall, and husband Tony, of Stone Mountain, GA, and Glorianne “Dee” Stollman of Colchester; one son, Thomas Limanni, and fiancé Chris Terzakis, of Guilford; five grandchildren, Kurt Gadarowski, Chad Limanni, Tiffany Limanni, Natalie Webb and Ryan Stollman; four great-grandchildren, Michael Wood, Jeremy Wood, Abby Limanni and Aiden Limanni; one brother, Dominic Limanni of Portland, CT; and many nieces and nephews; he was pre-deceased by his granddaughter, Stacie Wood; and two brothers, Joseph and Frank Limanni.
            Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 3, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. at the Bacon Funeral Home, 71 Prospect St., Willimantic, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 12:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Church.  Burial, with presentation of military honors, will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Middlesex Weiss Hospice Unit, c/o Middlesex Hospital, Office of Philanthropy, 28 Crescent St., Middletown, CT 06457.
