Lawrence R. Zingo

January 29, 1951 ~ January 13, 2018 (age 66)

On January 13, 2018, Lawrence R. Zingo passed away peacefully at his home in Southbury, CT, with his loving son Michael with him. Larry faced his ‘cancer battle’ with courage & dignity- putting his strong faith, trust & belief in The Lord to walk through it with him.

Born in Bridgeport, CT on January 29, 1951, into a 9th generation Italian family, Larry grew up in Trumbull, CT. He spoke with pride & fondness of his Italian Heritage & childhood memories to those who knew him. He and his father had a popular roadside stand, in front of their home, selling their vegetable garden’s bounty- most remembered were the colossal-sized tomatoes!

A graduate of Trumbull High School, Larry spent the major part of his working career dedicating 25 years of state service to Connecticut’s  Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services. As a para-professional- Mental Health Associate, Larry truly had a gift in caring for those less fortunate than he. His compassion, keen ability to size up a situation & quick wit in adding his ‘on the spot’ humor, served him & those around him well.

The youngest of 5 siblings, Larry was predeceased by his parents, Vincenzo James & Helen Beatrice, as well as an older brother James Vincenzo  (‘Jimmy boy’). Surviving family members include 2 sisters- Connie Kraus of Bethlehem, CT, along with her son Kurt, also of Bethlehem- another sister, Joan Huff of South Carolina, & her children Michael & Andrea- & another brother Joseph from Eugene, OR.

He will be deeply missed by his only son Michael L. Zingo of Port Charlotte, FL-residing there with his wife Jeanette & their daughter, Mikayla.

His longtime love & friend, Nora Cappiello will forever hold him in her heart…his walk, his wit, his style & his smile…meet you on the other side…♥
