Kean D. Yanarella

SEYMOUR — Kean D. Yanarella, 61, died peacefully on May 9, 2018 at his home.

Kean was born on Jan. 11, 1957 in Waterbury, a son of the late William D. and Elizabeth “Betty” (Brennan) Yanarella. Kean was raised in Naugatuck and raised his family in Oxford. He was devoted to his former work as a self-employed auto detailer, and his most current passion and inspiration was being a grandfather to his granddaughters. Kean had a big heart and loved strongly for those he cared for, and he also cared for people he didn’t know.

He was greatly loved by many and he loved deeply; his family, his many friends and those in his life he considered not only friends, but brothers.

Kean is survived by his daughters, Kenna Carlucci (Jason) and Keanne Razowski (Jason); his son, Brennan Yanarella (Rasheeda); his granddaughters, Gianna Carlucci and Adrianna Yanarella; his brothers, Mark Yanarella (Nikki), Drew Yanarella; his nephews, Christian Yanarella (Kristen) and Matthew Yanarella (Brianne); and his great-niece, Emilia Yanarella.

All services are private. There are no calling hours, and arrangements have been entrusted to the Buckmiller Thurston Mengacci Funeral Home, 82 Fairview Ave., Naugatuck.
