April 20, 1950 – July 30, 2020
Hiram Carrasquillo, 70, of East Hartford, passed away peacefully at home with his loving family by his side on Thursday July 30, 2020. He was born in Puerto Rico on April 20, 1950 to Nemesia (Reyes) and the late Francisco Carrasquillo. He was the beloved husband of Mildred Carrasquillo and had lived in East Hartford for the past 20 years. Hiram was a proud U.S. Army veteran, having served in Vietnam and had worked for ADRC for 20 years as a driver. Hiram was a member of AA, NA and an avid Red Sox fan as well as the Houston Astros, the Texans and Celtics. His favorite past-time, however, was fishing and he was happiest spending time at Hampton Beach.
A loving "Papi", friend and husband, he will be dearly missed by his wife Mildred of 23 years, as well as his children; Thomas, Ben, Hiram Jr., Dallas, Frances, Vivian and Julie, along with his sixteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Hiram is also survived by his mother of East Hartford, three brothers, a sister, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

From the moment I met you I loved you like a brother. My best memories are the barbecues at your house the fishing trips to Galveston. They are priceless memories! I’ll always remember you smiling because I’ve never seen you angry, you had a great sense of humor and was always a a good sport. We had some great times with family! I’ll miss you so much, but you will never be forgotten brother!
