He, along with his brothers, built thousands of apartment units throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. He was a proud veteran of World War II, having served with the U.S. Army Air Force in the South Pacific. He was a parishioner of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church.

He is also survived by eleven great grandchildren, Mikey and Hunter Lemay; Paulie, Dylan and Hannah Dumaine; Josh, Jacob and Jenna Tully; Donyel, Makynli and Luci Harvey. Also left to cherish his memory are his brothers, Joe Carabetta and Donald Logodicio and several nieces and nephews.

Uncle Sam was predeceased by his son, Salvatore (“Sammy”) Carabetta Jr.; his grandson, Peter Lemay; his son-in-law, George Jodon; four sisters, Josie Sartini, Rosie Marcellino,, Katie Macchietto and Carmel Tricarico; and three brothers, Ralph (“Sonny”), Dick and Mike.
