Henry L Pucci, Sr. age 90, of Seymour, CT entered into rest on Friday, May 15, 2020 at Griffin
Hospital with his loving family by her side. He was the devoted husband of 68 years to Dorothy
Veglio Pucci. He was born in Derby, CT on December 16, 1929 son of the late Ermete & Ida
Pucci. He was an Inspector for many years at the former Winchester Arms in New Haven, CT
before his retirement.
Henry was a member of Msgr. Murphy Knights of Columbus in Bridgeport for over 50 years and
a longtime member of the Italian American Club in Derby, CT
Henry’s greatest love in life was his family. He routinely worked 2 and even 3 jobs so that he
could afford to take his children on annual vacation trips to Wildwood, NJ, Banner Lodge in CT
or Tamiment Resort in PA. Many of his cousins would do the same so we could all go together.
He also loved Sunday picnics with his family at Seaside Park in Bridgeport during the summer.
Henry is the beloved father of Kathleen Pucci, Henry L Pucci Jr and his wife Carol, Christine
Schneider and her husband Thomas and the late Gary Pucci and his wife Rene.
Loving grandfather to Frank and Michelle Celini, Jaime Hrubala, Lisa Filarsky, Gary Pucci, Jr.,
Shane and Sarah Pucci, Tom Schneider, Dana Degennaro and Lee Schneider and great
grandfather to William, Emma, Morgan, Bella, Shane Jr., Connor, Laila, Jayce and Gary
Joseph. He is also survived by several nieces and one nephew.
Henry was predeceased by brother William Pucci of Ansonia, CT and sister Lena DiGiovanni of
Derby, CT.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic a private service for his immediate family will be held at the
Edward F. Adzima Funeral Home and burial at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Trumbull, CT.
A memorial mass will be held at later date to be announced for his extended family,
friends and the community to attend and support Henry’s family.
The family requests that memorial contributions may be made to the “Alzheimer’s Foundation
of America”.
