Surrounded by his family at the Veteran's Medical Center in West Haven, Henry (Dickie) J. Criscuolo, 79, of East Haven, passed away October 17, 2011. Born in 1931 in New Haven, Henry was the son of the late Paul and Mary (Gargiulo) Criscuolo. Henry is predeceased by his beloved wife, Lucille Mango Criscuolo, brother Joseph (Connie) Criscuolo of East Haven, and brother-in-law Frank Mango (Carolyn Barnes) of Florida. He is survived by sister, Lee Franco, wife of the late Nicholas Franco of East Haven, brother Paul (Laura) Criscuolo of Branford and brother-in-law of Dr. Stephen (Sandra) Mango of Virginia. Henry will be greatly missed by his four children, Mary Criscuolo (Mark Hoydilla) of East Haven, Rose (Jeffrey) Slavin of Wolcott, Anthony (Rosemarie) Criscuolo of East Haven and Louis (Cheryl) Criscuolo of East Haven. Henry was the loving and devoted grandfather of Louis Criscuolo of East Haven, Laura Denny, Michael, Michelle, and Jimmy Slavin of Wolcott. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews and was a role model and grandfather figure to his extended young family members. A Korean War Veteran, Henry honorably served his country as a sergeant and medic in the U.S. Army. In 2010, Henry was recognized for his service by the State of Connecticut in a ceremony honoring Korean War Veterans. After many years of service Henry retired from Marlin Firearms in 1993. He was an avid Red Sox fan, recently enjoying a family trip to Baltimore to attend a three game series. Henry also enjoyed trips to the casinos with his brother and sister. Well known for his quick wit and humor, Henry had a great love of family and friends and the celebrations that brought them together; he was much loved in return and his vibrant presence will be truly missed. His funeral procession will leave the PORTO FUNERAL HOME, 234 Foxon Rd. (Rte 80) East Haven Saturday morning at 9:15. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in St. Clare's Church at 10:00. Interment with military honors will follow in St. Lawrence Cemetery. Friends may call FRIDAY from 4:00-8:00 PM.
