ENFIELD - Carmine “Carm” Ruggiero, 95, passed away peacefully at home on February 4, 2020 surrounded by his family. Carmine was born on Park Avenue in the Thompsonville section of Enfield and later lived on D’Annunzio Avenue. He lived his whole life in Enfield. Carmine was a meat manager at A&P supermarket for forty-four years. He built a cottage for the family to enjoy on State Line Lake in Stafford, CT where friends and family spent many joyful summers. He loved cooking and preparing meals for everyone. For many years he loved gathering in his cellar where he and several close friends made as much at 360 gallons of wine a year along with a variety of homemade dried meats. He so enjoyed having parties in his backyard on D’Annunzio Avenue having pig roasts and other fun times. His hobby was cooking and everyone loved his pasta e fagioli. In his later years he and his companion, Caroline, enjoyed many winters in Ft. Pierce, FL. He is survived by his loving companion, Caroline Kamay, his two children, Ronald Ruggiero of Vero Beach, FL and Linda Ruggiero of Hazardville, his grandson, Jeffrey Ruggiero and his wife Jeannie of Palm Coast, FL, his great-grandchildren, Josh, Emma, Taylor and Meghan. He was predeceased by his wife of fifty-one years, Laura Ciolkis. Carmine’s family will receive family and friends on Sunday, February 9, 2020 from 3-6pm at Browne Memorial Chapels, 43 Shaker Road, and on Monday, February 10, 2020 at the funeral home from 9-10am. Interment will follow at St. Patrick’s King Street Cemetery followed by a luncheon at Figaro’s Restaurant in Enfield. Many thanks to the Hospice staff, Eileen, Carmine, Kathy, Marie and Sandy for their care and concern. Thanks also to his caretaker, June, for all that she did. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice.

I met Carmine at A&P when I was a teenager. I worked as a meat wrapper and deli clerk at A&P. My dad was a Meat Manager at A&P as well, Chick Reilly. I later worked in the Personnel Office and delivered your dad his check while he was out sick. He was a gentleman and always kind to me. My dad always spoke highly of him as well. I am so sorry for your loss. May your dad rest in peace.
