Joseph D. Filomeno, CPA, 85, of West Hartford, (CT) beloved husband for 39 years of the late Yolanda Lynn (DiLoreto) Filomeno, passed away peacefully on Sunday (October 6, 2013) with his family by his side. Born on November 22, 1927 in Hartford, he was the son of the late Salvatore Sam and Mary (DeFranco) Filomeno. He was a 1945 graduate of Bulkeley High School. After serving in the Army, he graduated from UConn with an Accounting degree in 1951. Joe was always looking to improve life for himself and those around him. The son of a fruit vendor, Joe went to college, became a CPA and went on to establish Filomeno & Company in 1966, a prominent accounting firm in West Hartford. He now joins his loving, devoted and supportive wife Lynn in heaven. His greatest joy was his Cape Cod home: summers filled with fishing, boating, cookouts and making his famous baked stuffed clams. He especially enjoyed Sundays on the outer beach with his wife and family, sharing laughs and smiles. He will be dearly missed by his three loving sons and daughters-in-law, Daniel and Franca of Rocky Hill (CT) Thomas and Madelyn of West Hartford (CT) and Michael and Jeannie of Longmeadow, MA. He loved and was extremely proud of his nine grandchildren and their accomplishments, whether it be sports, school or college graduations: Mark, Joseph, James, Nicholas, Christopher, Madelyn, Alexander, Jacquelyn and Taylor. He is also survived by two beloved sisters, Anna DiCiccio of Wethersfield (CT) and Marie Rizzio of Old Saybrook (CT); his sister-in-law, Elizabeth DiLoreto of Farmington, plus 13 wonderful nieces and nephews who were all so special to him.
