Samuel T.'s Story
Samuel T. Iannuzzi, 84, of Derry, N.H., died Tuesday, June 28, 2016, in his home.
A 40-year resident of Derry, he was born in Cambridge, Mass. on February 27, 1932. The son of the late Samuel and Lucy (Medeiros) Iannuzzi and brother to Louise Ebbs and Robert Iannuzzi (deceased), Sam spent his childhood in Cambridge and Somerville. Mr. Iannuzzi served proudly in the Korean War as a member of the U.S. Army. In his post-war career, he was Chief Armorer of the Cambridge Armory. Sam enjoyed puttering around the house and yard, watching movies and race horses, and sharing his love of nature and history with his family. He brought his unique sense of humor and love of laughter to many family events. His greatest love was for his family, and he found particular joy in doting on his grandchildren.
