Logodicio Sr., and his wife Tracy; and their mother, Barbara A. Logodicio; 13 loving grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; and his brother, Joseph F. Carabetta.

Logodicio; four sisters, Josie Sartini, Rosie Marcellino, Katie Macchietto and Carmel Tricarico; and four brothers, Salvatore (Sam), Michael, Dick and Ralph (Sonny) Carabetta.
In true Logodicio fashion, Logi lived life on his own terms and believed life was meant to be enjoyed. He lived in Meriden his whole life, also working alongside his brothers, Mike, Sam, Joe, and Sonny. Being a family man, he cherished spending time with family, friends, and partner Elaine. Logi never failed to keep those around him laughing with his witty wordplay and famous one liners. In his spare time, he enjoyed being outdoors. Many hours were spent in his garden, whether it be relaxing in his hammock listening to the sounds of nature or planting flowers and various vegetables he’d use to cook with. Cooking, country music & fishing were a few of his passions, and he was known for making the best meatballs.
