Samuel C. Guglielmino, born Sept. 27, 1914, of Manchester, entered eternal rest on June 15, 2013, at Crestfield's Fenwood Manor in his decorated Boston Red Sox room that we called "Fenway South." He was married to his loving wife, Olga (Eccellente) Guglielmino, for 56 years until her passing in 2008.

Born in Lawrence, Mass., he lived in Bolton and Manchester since 1952. His career began at the Boston Navy Yard, becoming an accomplished toolmaker spanning a period of over 60 years. He owned and operated Atlas Tool, and SEG Manufacturing in Manchester, but previously had been an employee of Pratt & Whitney for over 30 years. A loyal fan of Boston sports teams, especially the Red Sox and Patriots, he thoroughly enjoyed celebrating the long-awaited Red Sox World Series championships of 2004 and 2007. He also was an avid fan of the UConn Huskies. In retirement, Samuel and Olga owned and operated an inn in West Harwich, Mass., "Cape Winds by the Sea," and always enjoyed conversing with their vacationing guests. After retiring as innkeepers, they wintered at their condo in Clearwater, Fla., and appreciated the company of their many friends.
Samuel leaves a son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Joanne Williams, and several nieces and nephews. Besides his wife, he was predeceased by his parents, Corrado and Paolina; his brother, Domenic, and sister, Pauline DeFusco, both of North Andover, Mass.
As a special note, Samuel and his immediate family want to thank the entire staff at Crestfield for their caring, support, and attention to all details of the last two years, making his life as safe and comfortable as possible.
