Warren H. Pendleton, 90, of Middlefield, beloved husband of Pauline 'Polly' (Skinner) Pendleton for 66 years, passed away on Tuesday, November 27th. Born on July 9, 1922, he was the son of the late Merritt Henry and Leonora (Fowler) Pendleton. After graduating from Middletown High School, Warren served his country during World War II from 1942 - 1946 in the U.S. Army Cannon Company 354th Infantry Regiment 89th Division. On April 27, 1946 he married Polly, the pretty R.N. he met while stationed in North Carolina. Together they built their family home in Middlefield. Warren was employed by New Departure of Meriden; Sanibel of Middletown; and CT Valley Hospital of Middletown. Through the years, his hobbies included fishing, bowling, hunting and cards, but golf became his favorite pastime. After retiring as Head Chef of Merritt Kitchen at C.V.H., he enjoyed his second career at Indian Spring Golf Course in Middlefield. Warren was former Adjutant of the American Legion Post 192; a member of the V.F.W.; and a lifetime member of the Middlefield Federated Church. Along with his wife, Polly, he is survived by his two daughters: Paula Pendleton and her husband Joseph Sardinas of Lady Lake, FL; and Marcia Pendleton-Sacco and her husband Vincent Sacco of Cromwell; two Grandchildren, Nicholas Warren Sacco and Lindsey Marie Sacco; three nieces, Lynelle Lakey Bennett of VT, Pamela Lakey Crandall of OH, and Susan Skinner Frazier of NC; Sister-in-law Edith Lewis Skinner of NC; and many great nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his sister Barbara Pendleton Lakey. The family would like to thank the staff of Pilgrim Manor at Covenant Village and Hospice.
