Steven Saramanidis Tribute


Steven Saramanidis, 82, of Old Saybrook, passed away surrounded by loved ones on February 22, 2024. His wife, Patricia Saramanidis, of 61 years was by his side.

Born in Greece, the son of Argirios and Anastasia. Known for his kindness and gentle heart, he married his high school sweetheart, Patricia. A longtime resident of Farmington before moving to the CT shoreline that he always loved.

Steven was a Doctor of Optometry in Simsbury for decades and took great pride in treating patients and families of multiple generations. He never rushed, always listened, and truly cared for all his patients. With a strong work ethic and not one to sit still, he retired from private practice and for many years continued to work for the State of Connecticut in their medical department. After finally retiring, he thoroughly enjoyed each day by the ocean with his wife, family, friends, and pets.

Steven was an avid nonfiction reader; he was an intelligent and knowledgeable man that friends and family often sought out for medical advice or any type of dilemma…he listened, never judged, and always had great advice. He was a lifelong learner who welcomed conversation on any topic with friends and family.

He loved his wife, children, grandchildren, and his great grandchildren. He took great delight in spending time with them, and he will be sorely missed. In addition to never missing a UCONN basketball game with his wife, Steven was always a taste tester for great grandchild McKenna’s cooking concoctions and a cartoon connoisseur with grandchild Roman. He also enjoyed the ocean boating trips on his grandson’s boat with his great grandchildren Danielle and Brenden.

Steven is survived and will always be remembered by his wife, Patricia; his children Anastacia and Melissa; his grandchildren, Gregory (Becky), Steven (Megan), Zachary (Heather), and MacKenzie. He is also survived by several great grandchildren, many extended family members, and friends.

A memorial to honor Steven will be held March 1st at noon at All Saints Orthodox Church in Hartford, CT. Burial will be scheduled at a later date.
