OBITUARY

Alexander A Suprin

December 16, 1922January 5, 2021

He could make a friend in moments, and leave an impression for a lifetime. Alexander Anthony Suprin, age 98, forever young at heart, died peacefully on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. He joins his wife Eleanor (Dombrowski) Suprin among the angels and saints. Al was born December 16, 1922 in Poland and emigrated as a boy to grow up learning, loving, and working in his hometown of New Britain. His steadfast faith and his belief in the importance of education lead him through his life. He joined the Marines and served in the Pacific theater through end of WWII. Always the playful leader of the gang, he had a variety of interests that created so many precious memories. The family's lakeside cottages were the center of many special times. He so enjoyed fishing, hunting, boating, swimming, snorkeling, dart playing, golfing, ice skating, grilling, and reading. He inspired a century of card games (especially cribbage, pinochle and setback), sports (especially his beloved Yankees), songs (Oh, how he played the harmonica!) and dancing with Eleanor, who was unquestionably the love of his life. While vigorously pursuing these endeavors, he found time to support his family as a fireman for the city of New Britain for 25 years, an electrician, and an engineer at New Britain General Hospital for 10 years. Al is survived by his son, Paul Suprin (& Kathy), his son, Mark Suprin (& Jill), his daughter Gail Suprin-Peplau (& Steve), and his daughter Lenore Carlone (& Mike); his 7 grandchildren Melissa Suprin, Alexander "Alex" Suprin (&Sierra), Rachel Harris, Christopher Bulawa, Kayla Suprin, Amanda Carlone (& John Opalenik), & Valarie Carlon; 6 great-grandchildren Ryan Suprin, Matthew and Natalie Hynek, Nicholas Harris, Brennan Bulawa, and Eleanor "Nora" Suprin, a brother, Stanley Czuprinski; as well as many many other family and friends who will miss him dearly. Due to Covid 19 services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to The House of Heroes, 3342 Whitney Avenue, Hamden, CT 06518 or Rebuilding Together, 200 Myrtle Street, New Britain, CT 060 New Britain Memorial Funeral Home, 444 Farmington Ave. New Britain, CT 06053 is entrusted with arrangements.

To The Suprin Family-

I'm very sorry to hear of Al's passing. He was a great man and lived a long life. One of my favorite memories of him was when we used to run into each other in the hallways at NBGH when we both worked there..... I'd say "what are YOU doing here?" and he would say back "what are YOU doing here?" and we both would laugh....He always had a smile. Al will be missed by many...

My sympathy to the Suprin Family..

Dear Paul , My sincere condolences on your father’s death. He and your mother made your home so welcoming to us over our early years together. I will especially remember those basement parties where your parents never checked up on our teenage behaviors . May he Rest In Peace with your mother, herself a childhood friend of my mother. Bob

Paul and Family,
I was so sorry to read of your dad's passing. How fortunate you are to have had such a wonderful father for so many years. I enjoyed the family photos, especially the ones on Garry Drive--my family's house "flipped" just across the street. You have a beautiful extended family and beautiful memories to cherish.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. The memories I have of playing basketball, swimming, and nights spent in the backyard treehouse your dad built are numerous and precious. It was parents like yours that made growing up in the time we did in the neighborhood we did so safe and memorable.
He will be missed but never forgotten.
My prayers and wishes are with all of you .

Paul & Kathy,

Paul, please accept my deepest sympathies for the passing of your Dad. He was a great guy with a real zest for life. I will always remember the times that your Mom & Dad would be so gracious when you and I had lunch hour at their home while working our summer high school jobs as groundkeepers for the city of New Britain. This was followed by so many great memories of both your Mom & Dad. Please give my best to Kathy and your family. Hope to see you soon.
Best regards, Joe
