Earl O. Hemingway Passed away Saturday, (November 10, 2012) at Hartford Hospital. Earl was born in St. Albans, VT on May 27, 1936. He was the son of the late Oney Hemmingway and Zora Cheney Hemingway. He was predeceased by his brothers Elmer Hemingway and Robert Hemingway, both formally of Vermont and his sisters Jackie Hemingway Horter Formally of New Jersey and Barbara Hemingway Cross formally of Vermont. A lifelong bachelor, Earl left behind many nieces and nephews that will sorely miss their Uncle Earl. Earl lived his entire adult life in East Windsor, CT and was a parishioner at Saint Phillips Parish. Earl retired from United technologies in 1993 after 39 years of service with both Pratt & Whitney and Hamilton Standard. He was the previous owner of Cape Cod Seafood in East Windsor. Earl lost his left arm in a farming accident in Vermont at the young age of 13 and many of his friends fondly called him "Lefty". In his entire life he never let his handicap control him. Earl loved to play cards and was a regular at the weekly set back games. He taught all his nephews how to play nickel, dime poker and they quickly learned that the lessons weren't 'free'. He loved going to the senior center and often competed in the Wii Bowling tournaments. He was very competitive and had over forty perfect 300 games.
Friends and family are welcome to join a grave side service at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov.17th at St. Catherine's Cemetery, on Rye Street in Broad Brook, CT. A gathering to celebrate Earls life will follow at Noon at St. Phillips church on Main street in East Windsor. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to East Windsor Senior Center in Earls name.
