David Ganino

David Paul Ganino, 64, a lifelong resident of Stamford, CT passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 26, 2024. David was born on April 2, 1959, to the late Michael B. Ganino, Sr and the late Josephine Lazzaro Ganino.

David is survived by his brother, Michael B. Ganino, Jr and his wife, Patricia of Trumbull, CT and his sister, Rosemary Ganino of Norwalk, CT. He is also survived by his nephews and nieces: Michael F. Ganino and his wife, Gloria (Michael, Jonathan, and Deanna) of Monroe, CT, Catherine A. Sommer and her husband, Ronald (Christopher and Stefanie) of Monroe, NY, Christina M. Huydic and her husband, Craig (Craig, Jr and Christian) of Ansonia, CT and Gabrielle Ganino of Marlborough, MA.

David graduated from Rippowam High School with the class of 1977 and lettered in varsity football and wrestling. After graduation he was employed by Bonnie Doon Hosiery and the WWE, always ready and willing to go above and beyond, priding himself on perfect attendance at both jobs.

David lived his life with selflessness and determination. Epilepsy did not limit his ability to live life. He loved his family and all he did was heartfelt, and he was honored to be named Godfather to his nieces Christina and Deanna. He was an avid fan of the NY Yankees, the New York Giants and the UCONN Women’s basketball team and loved to discuss all aspects and details of the games with his nephews. David also loved to give “great life stories and advice” to his nephews and nieces. His favorite response to life’s questions was “Take It Ease”.

Visitation will be held from 9AM to 12PM on Saturday, February 3, 2024 at the Nicholas Cognetta Funeral Home, 104 Myrtle Avenue, Stamford, CT. A prayer service will take place at 12PM. The interment will be private.
