Antonino Miceli, 87, of Waterford, and beloved husband of Annunziata Maiorana Miceli, entered eternal life Nov. 12, 2019, in the company of his loving family. He was born Nov. 9, 1932, in Tusa, Sicily, the son of the late Vincenzo and Maria Rosa Turissi Miceli.

Antonino worked on the family farm in Italy until he was 18, and then enlisted in the Italian Army. He was proud to serve his country for two years from 1950 to 1952. He married Annunziata Maiorana in their hometown of Tusa, Sicily in 1959. Months later, Antonino and Annunziata left their home in Tusa and took an arduous twelve-day boat trip on the Saturnia to get to the United States, where they joined family in New London. After arriving in America, Antonino worked for Laborers International Union of North America Local 547 in New London as a concrete finisher. One of his favorite jobs during that time was the construction of Dominion Millstone Power Station in Waterford. It took many years and was a big part of his life. Antonino later left the Union and went to work at Pfizer Inc. in Groton. He worked in shipping and receiving. He also landscaped and maintained the grounds at Pfizer until his retirement in 1996. He was always a hard-working man, and his life’s work brought him joy and a great sense of fulfillment.

Antonino was a gardener at heart and he loved spending time outdoors. He was proud of his home in New London, and afterwards, his home in Waterford. He enjoyed his daily walks, tending his flower and vegetable gardens, and he always made time for others. His family and friends both in the United States and in Italy were important to him. He was always so happy to spend time with them.

He leaves behind his wife of 60 years, Annunziata Maiorana Miceli; two daughters, Rose Marie Denniston and her husband Anthony; and grandson Vincenzo; and Gina Argento and her companion Gregory Dziczek, all of Waterford. He also leaves a sister Sebastiana DiMarco of Switzerland; three brothers-in-law; two sisters-in-law; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by two sisters, Maria Mussotto and Matilda Levanto.

His family will receive relatives and friends from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Monday, November 18, at the Impellitteri-Malia Funeral Home, 84 Montauk Avenue in New London; and then proceed to a Mass of Christian at noon at St. Joseph’s Church, 149 Montauk Avenue. Interment will follow in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Jefferson Avenue, New London.
