James F. Slahtosky, 81, of Suffield, beloved husband of Catherine, passed away after a brief illness on October 2, 2013 at St. Francis Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Born on August 27, 1932 in New Britain, Jim was raised in Collinsville and lived in West Hartford, Windsor and most recently Suffield. He proudly served in the U. S. Army for two tours during the Korean Conflict. He was predeceased by his first wife and mother of his children, Florentina. Jim is survived by his six children and their spouses, Carlene and Donald Dumont, Elizabeth and Gregory Lemone, Kathleen and Bradford Burton, Judy and David Birdsey, James and Jill Slahtosky, and Diane and Brian Creamer; his cherished grandchildren, Sean, Jeremy and Mario Dumont, Gregory, Stephen and Cheryl Lemone, Matthew, Lisa and Megan Burton, Jennifer Demarest, Josh, Jimmy, Jacob and Jason Slahtosky, John and Katie Creamer as well as his five loving step-daughters and their families. He is also survived by his sisters, Gloria Johnson and Rita McAllister as well as his many nieces and nephews who will miss their Uncle Jimmy. An avid Red Sox fan, he was overjoyed to see them finally win not one but two World Series. He was a true gentleman who was exceedingly proud of his family and always placed their needs above his own. Jim's family was equally proud of him and will fondly remember his warm smile, wonderful sense of humor, and kind nature. A funeral will be held on Sunday, October 6, 2013 at 2 p.m. in the Carmon Poquonock Funeral Home, 1816 Poquonock Avenue in Windsor with burial and military honors following in Windsor Veterans Memorial Cemetery. His family will receive friends in the funeral home on Sunday from 12-2 p.m. prior to the service.
