Josef L. Hundhammer 82, passed away surrounded by his loving family at his home in Avon, after a brave fight against leukemia, on Monday, November 21, 2016. To old friends, he is "Sepp." To new friends, "Joe." And to his immediate family, "Dad," and "Opa." Sepp was born on September 28, 1934 in Mietraching, Germany to the late Sebastian and Anna (Kriechbaumer) Hundhammer. He immigrated to the United States in 1957 and was a resident of Connecticut for more than 40 years. Sepp was a remarkable personality and incredibly thorough in all his endeavors. He had a very strong work ethic and especially enjoyed working with his hands. It seemed Sepp could fix anything and everything, and he was always immersed in one of his special projects. He greatly appreciated spending time outdoors, which led to his talent for skiing and his love of sailing. In his later years, he became an avid bicyclist and spent many enjoyable hours on the golf course. Sepp also found great peace in his quiet moments working outdoors and tending to the garden at his home. He was a truly special and devoted husband, father, Opa, brother, brother-in-law, and uncle, and he will be loved and missed forever. Sepp leaves behind his loving wife of 50 years, Ann; a son, John; a daughter, Christine and her husband, Bruce; a brother, Frederick; and two adored granddaughters, Emery and Alena. In addition to his parents, Joe was predeceased by three sisters and a brother. Sepp's family will receive friends on Thursday, December 1 from 9 to 10:30AM at the Carmon Funeral Home & Family Center, 301 Country Club Road, Avon, followed by a Memorial Mass at 11AM at the Church of St. Ann, 289 Arch Road, Avon. The family would like to express their great appreciation for the excellent care that he received from the doctors and nurses at Yale Smilow Hospital in New Haven and Hartford. In lieu of flowers, a donation in his honor may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, 3 Landmark Square, Suite 330, Stamford, CT 06901 or at www.donate.lls.org.
