Uccello, Donald Anthony

Donald Anthony Uccello of East Hartford died peacefully on November 18 at Connecticut Veterans Hospital in West Haven, following a short illness. Donald was the son of the late Mary (Pomerleau) Uccello, and the late Anthony Charles Uccello. He was born on August 29, 1935, raised in New Britain, and attended New Britain High School. Donald was a Korean War Veteran who served as a Staff Sergeant with the US Army’s 45th infantry. Among many business ventures, he dedicated most of his life to carpentry, and enjoyed his career as a general building contractor until he retired.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his two brothers; Samuel and Mark, and his sister Rosemary. Donald is survived by his sister Lou Ann Piccoli of Preston, a daughter Donna Eddy of Barkhamsted, a son Anthony Charles Uccello II of Farmington, three step children, several grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed for his amazing sense of humor, but mostly for his charitable nature, selflessness, and generosity.

    We may not have gotten to know our “Gran-daddy Don” too well, but we are very grateful for his Son Tony who became, and remains to be our amazing Dad, and “Gran-Daddy”. The few memories we do have are very pleasant ones, and we wish to express our deepest sympathy to the entire Uccello family, and the McCarthy family too. Big hugs from the whole Carver family: Kevin, Dillon, Logan, and Hannes.

    Dear Tony & Donna,

    I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad, Donny. I remember him as a great cook, and a talented artist. May he rest in eternal peace and may the perpetual light shine upon him.

      Thank you, Auntie Nancy! I’m very grateful for your prayers and condolences. You can bet my Father is, too.

      -Tony

    I spent a few years, back in the late seventies, early eighties, living and working with Donny. He was a very smart and funny person, but also kept his family life secret. He will always have a place in my heart.

    • Tony Uccello says:

      Thank you Karen. I remember you well, and have many good memories of spending time with you, and my Dad. Please know that you were very special to him. He spoke of you often, over the years. God bless.
      -Tony

      Thank you Margaret, for your kind words. My Father was proud to have come from where he did, and like most of us, wouldn’t have changed a thing. Peace and love to you and your family, some of whom I know very well.
