LIMANNI, Dominic

Dominic Limanni of Portland passed away on February 2, 2013 at Yale-New Haven Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Willimantic on March 24, 1920, he was the son of the late Antonio and Francesca (Maiorana) Limanni. Prior to his involvement in World War II, he worked as a tool and die maker for Colt Firearms, supporting the production of 20mm and 40mm guns. In 1943, he enlisted in the United States Navy, serving aboard the aircraft carrier USS Hornet (CV-12) in the Pacific combat zone, achieving the rank of Water Tender Third Class, and briefly on the USS Tarawa (CV-40). After his Honorable Discharge in 1946, Dominic returned to tool and die making, working at Royal Typewriter in East Hartford for 23 years and Raymond Engineering in Middletown for three years. He ended his career at Chandler-Evans in West Hartford, retiring as a Master Machinist in 1984. Mr. Limanni is survived by his three children: Reverend Joseph Limanni, a Roman Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, TX; Maryanne Limanni Winslow, her husband Timothy and their son Robert of Virginia; and Nancy Crosen, her partner Bruce Poresky, and her children Kristin, Lauren, and Kevin Crosen of Portland; sister-in-law Gloria Limanni of Willimantic and brother-in-law Donald Cameron of Ledyard, as well as many nieces and nephews, and his beloved cat, Angelina. He was predeceased by his wife of 56 years, Julia (Szczesny) in 2007; his brothers Joseph, Samuel and Frank Limanni; sisters-in-law Genevieve Cameron; Mary Connelli and her husband William; Gladys Shea and her husband Daniel; and brother-in-law Rudolph Szczesny.
