Pasquale ‘Pat’ Troiano


Pasquale (Pat) Troiano, 91, of North Branford, died April 23 at Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) after a long, courageous battle with cancer. He was born on Sept. 15, 1926, in Woodbridge to the late Ciro and Jennie Troiano.

He was predeceased by his loving wife of 59 years Anna (Luzzi) Troiano. He retired from Tilcon 29 years ago and was a proud, active member of the Operating Engineers Local 478 for 61 yrs. He enjoyed refurbishing sleighs, wagons, and tractors, but his passion was his vegetable garden, which he enjoyed sharing with everyone he knew.

He is survived by his two daughters, Patricia (Gary) Christensen of Middletown, and Jennylyn (David) Manship of North Branford; his grandchildren Michael (Michelle) Christensen, Christopher Christensen, Michelle Christensen, Melissa (Greg) May, and Rebecca Manship; and his great-grandson Tristen Christensen. Pasquale also leaves behind his brothers Sam (Amelia) Troiano, Dan (Vivian) Troiano, and his sister Angelina Conte, all of North Branford; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brother Gino Troiano.

Pat’s family would like to thank the many nurses at YNHH who took excellent care of him.
