Fargiano, Carl N.
Carl Nicholas Fargiano, 78, of Port St. Lucie, Florida, died suddenly on Wednesday, January 1, 2014 at Danbury Hospital, of complications resulting from a hemorrhagic stroke. Carl was born on July 3, 1935 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, to the late Frank and Caroline Fargiano. He graduated from Warren Harding High School, and in 1957 earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Connecticut, from which he would later receive his MBA. He married his high-school sweetheart Evelyn Linda Conti on June 6, 1959 in St. Patrick's Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Carl spent the majority of his career developing and managing information systems and services at Norwalk Hospital in Norwalk, Connecticut, eventually retiring as a hospital Vice President in 1995. Carl was a lifelong sports fan, and an ardent supporter of the UConn Huskies basketball program. As an adult, he participated in softball, bowling and bocce, and he rediscovered the simple joys of bicycling after moving to Florida in 2006. Having served his country as a member of the Army National Guard, he gave his time generously to various social and charitable organizations, including the Knights of Columbus and the Lions Club. In his later years, he volunteered his time and talent for the betterment of his community in the Lakes at Tradition in Port St. Lucie. Carl and his wife traveled extensively during retirement, ultimately realizing a life-long goal to visit all 50 states. Most recently, he and Evelyn completed a month-long Mediterranean cruise and tour of Europe, accompanied by their close friends. Above all else, Carl's greatest joy in life was spending time with his family. He was an eternally devoted and loving husband; a patient, kind and generous father; and a proud, doting grandfather. He will be missed beyond words by all of us who had the great fortune to be counted among his family circle. Carl is survived by his wife of 54 years, Evelyn, and his three sons C. Douglas Fargiano (and wife Michelle) of Bethel, Connecticut, Dr. Stuart Fargiano (and wife Christina) of Goshen, Virginia, and Chris Fargiano (and wife Amanda) of Hopkinton, Massachusetts. He also leaves four beloved grandchildren, Olivia, Justin, Benjamin, and Timothy; his sister Dolores Pivovar; his brother Frank Fargiano; and several nieces and nephews.
