Obituary

Donald A. “Donny” Stankelis, 84, of New Britain, CT died Wednesday, September 25, 2019. Donny was born on January 1, 1935 in New Britain, CT and was the son of the late Anthony and Ann (Shalinga) Stankelis. Donny was predeceased by his wife of fifty-one years, Annette “Netty” (Scamoni) Stankelis. He graduated E.C. Goodwin Technical School as a baker. Retired from Emhart (Corbin and Russwin) after forty years as a buffer and polisher. Donny served his country honorably in the United States Army in France and Germany as a cook. He enjoyed traveling with his wife Netty, often with their many friends and family members. They were permanent campers at Hidden Acres Family Campground in Preston, CT for forty years and their fellow campers became a second family to them. Donny was an avid gardener, sharing the bounty with family, friends and the many doctors and caregivers he had as he battled his way through four different cancers. He was a great cook and all can attest that any meal prepared by Donny, be it a simple lunch or a holiday celebration, was a feast. Donny looked forward to Thursdays and an evening of cards and socializing with the Card Club
Donny is survived by his four brothers and sisters-in-law, Anthony and Ann Stankelis of Hebron, CT John and Rosalie Stankelis of Collinsville, CT, Peter and Marcy Stankelis of Middlefield, CT and Robert and Barbara Stankelis of Rhode Island and many, many loving nieces and nephews who adored their Uncle Donny.
Funeral rites for Donny will be held Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 8:30 a.m. with the procession departing at 9 a.m. from the Paul A. Shaker Funeral Home, 764 Farmington Ave., New Britain, CT., followed by a Liturgy of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. at St. Katharine Drexel Parish, 1010 Slater Rd., New Britain, CT. Burial with full military honors rendered by the United States Army will be in St. Mary Cemetery, 1141 Stanley St., New Britain, CT. The American flag will be presented to Donny’s brother Anthony. Relatives and friends may call at the Paul A. Shaker Funeral Home, Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Directions to funeral home – I-84 east or west, exit 37 (Fienemann Rd) right off exit – one mile down on right.
