October 8, 1949 - June 20, 2017
Born in New London
Resided in Niantic, CT


Niantic - Leon Hugh Calanquin, beloved husband of Anne (Sullivan) Calanquin, passed away at home on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at the age of 67.

He was born on October 8, 1949, in New London, the son of Leon V. and Virginia (Lena) Calanquin, and the grandson of Leon J. and Mary Calanquin, and Dr. and Mrs. Hugh F. Lena Sr.

Leon was a graduate of St. Bernard High School and Culver-Stockton University is Canton, Missouri. He worked briefly as a professional actor and spent the rest of his career as an auditor and accountant. He retired from the Office of The Secretary of the State in 2006. He was active in the Wethersfield Lions for many years.

Leon's favorite activity was theater. He was a founding member of The Euqine O'Neil Theater Center in Waterford, and spent many happy days and evenings attending plays and concerts. If heaven has a theater, Leon is there. We shall miss him for his love for and knowledge of theater, his gregarious personality and his love of a good party.

Among his survivors are Anne, his wife of nearly thirty-six years, nieces and nephews, and many cousins whom he loved dearly. He was predeceased by his parents, his grandparents, and his brother Kevin F. Calanquin.

Per Leon's wishes there will be no formal funeral service. There will be a memorial service at a date to be announced in the future. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Eugene O'Neil Theater Center, or a charity of the donor's choice. And be greatly appreciated. Arrangements are entrusted to the Thomas L. Neilan & Sons Funeral Home.
