Obituary for Charles J. "Chick" Comparetto

Charles J. “Chick” Comparetto, 98, of Enfield, beloved husband of Deanna (August) Binnenkade-Comparetto, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 19, 2020 in the comfort of his home with his loving wife by his side. Born in Enfield, CT on January 8, 1922, he was the son of the late Calogero Comparetto and Rose Vella and grew up in the Thompsonville section of Enfield. He graduated from Enfield High School with the Class of 1939 and was the last surviving member of the Roamers Bicycle Club. Chick joined the US Army and served honorably during World War II. He worked at National Print in Enfield, Associated Engineering in Agawam, MA, and Package Machinery in East Longmeadow, MA. While working for Package Machinery, he was called upon by the Federal Government to work for Hamilton Standard making the small metal pieces for the backpacks for the Apollo 11 Astronauts. He was known as the best Experimental Machinist in the area. Chick was a very talented oil painter and had over 75 pieces hanging in his house. He had a love for photography and travelling all throughout Europe. He self-published 2 books about the Hazardville Powder Company and he and his first wife wrote a travel book about their adventures. They loved to dance and were considered the best dancers in the area. He also wrote a book about his beloved Bantam, Mozie. Chick was a longtime member of the Historical Society of Enfield and was on their board for 12 years. He was a member of the Tanguay-McGill American Legion Post 80 and was the oldest living member. He had great pride in building and spending time at his cabin in the Berkshires. Chick attended Hazardville United Methodist Church and more recently St. Bernard’s Church in Enfield. Whatever Chick did or built came out perfect, he was a self-made man. Chick will be remembered as a gentle and loyal man who always had a friendly smile on his face. Besides his beloved wife of 6 years, Deanna Binnenkade-Comparetto, he leaves 3 children, many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and was loved by Deanna’s 5 children, 4 grandchildren, and extended family; and special friends Jean and Joe. He was predeceased by his first wife of 68 years, Beryl (Kennedy) Comparetto; his son, Dennis Comparetto, and a half-brother. Many thanks go to Jane Lizotte for her ongoing devoted care, kindness, and friendship. Thank you also to his lifelong friend Attorney Richard Tatoian, Dr. Jay Burton and his Staff at Enfield Medical Center, and neighbor Bonnie. Chick cherished his friendships with all at The Enfield Senior Center and Hazardville United Methodist Church.
His family will receive friends on Thursday, January 23, from 3-6 PM at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd., Enfield. His Funeral will begin on Friday, January 24, at 9 AM at the funeral home with a Procession to St. Bernard’s Church, Enfield for a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 AM. Burial with Military Honors will follow in Hazardville Cemetery, Enfield. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Masonicare Hospice, and the Suffield House for their kind and compassionate care.
Memorial donations may be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Bernard’s Church, 426 Hazard Ave., Enfield, CT 06082, or the Enfield Senior Center, 299 Elm St., Enfield, CT 06082.

My deepest condolences, Deanna. Dick and I knew Chick and Beryl very well, and were aware of how lost Chick was when Beryl passed. We were so happy to see how happy you both were when you got married. I'm sure it was a good 6 years for you both. Peace, and compassion to you. God will be by your side. I know He has helped me so much since Dick passed in September. Blessings to you. Linda Borio
