Samuel S. Girgenti, of Hampstead, NH and North Port, FL, passed away peacefully in Florida on May 14, 2022, after a long illness. Throughout this time, he faced each day with courage. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Sam was the son of Salvatore and Ann (DiPrima) Girgenti of North Andover, MA. He was a graduate of North Andover High School and attended UMass Lowell. He worked in industrial wastewater treatment/environmental safety for many years.
A proud veteran, Samuel served as a Vietnam era veteran in the Navy Seabee unit.
Sam had many interests but most of all he was a Corvette enthusiast and was a member of the Spindle City Corvette Club for many years. During that time, he made many friends and enjoyed trips, car shows and other events sponsored by the club.
Other interests for Sam were camping, golfing, being at the beach and socializing with friends and family. He loved the time he spent in Maine camping at Old Orchard Beach. He also loved the winters he spent in North Port, FL. He couldn’t wait to get on that plane and fly into the Florida sunshine. Sam participated in a variety of social activities in the community and developed many lifelong friendships.
