Emil loved to spend the holidays with his family, always bringing with him a bunch of scratch Lotto tickets, hoping for a big win. He was an avid fisherman, who knew of every good bass pond in Connecticut and those that you are not supposed to fish in. We will miss your 4 a.m. fishing calls, baiting our lines, and your fishing stories about the one that got away.
Emil is survived by his daughter, Sharon Durgan, and son-in-law, Toby; his granddaughter, Jessica (Pekoske) Pompei; his great-grandson, Sonney Pompei, his pride and joy; and niece, Paula Snedeker. Emil is also survived by Lois Dionne, his companion of many years; his best fishing buddy, Leon Boucher and his wife, Alberta, who would prepare special lunches for their fishing trips; and a very dear friend, Rob Brainard. He was predeceased by his sisters, Mary Snedeker and Enis Verdolini.
