Francis “Sammy” Larkin, age 76, of Bridgeport, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at Bridgeport Hospital with his family at his side. He was the son, and one of ten children born to the late Francis Larkin and Eva Farrell Larkin. Sammy was a life long South ender. During his youth he was a lifeguard at Seaside Park. He graduated Bassick High School where he was an outstanding athlete excelling at three sports. He loved to share fond memories of the many softball games he played for multiple teams. Sammy was an avid sports fan and would often have two televisions on tracking the scores of his favorite teams, the Giants and the Yankees. He was very proud of his Irish heritage and was a member of the Gaelic American Club. He was retired from Harvey Hubbell.

Survivors include his brothers Bobby Larkin of Fairfield, Richard Larkin of New Hampshire, sister Ann Lombardo of Fairfield, brother in law Micky Manduak, sister in law Rita Campbell and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by sisters Catharine Arszyla, Agnes Ziman Kroszer, Gertrude Daniels and Margaret Mandulack, brothers Billy Larkin, and Charlie Larkin. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses in the ICU at Bridgeport Hospital.

Dear Family, I have fond memories of Sammy. We used to sit on the park benches at St. Mary's by the Sea with a group of guys and talk of the memories of life in Bridgeport, current events and how we would solve the world's problems. He had a great sense of humor and we shared many laughs. My condolences to you. May you enjoy many happy memories.
