Salko Mahmutovic

Salko Mahmutovic, 74 of Plainville, beloved father and grandfather, passed away surrounded by his family after a long illness on Thursday, June 2, 2016.

Born and raised in Yugoslavia, he served his country in their armed forces before moving to the United States where he raised his two daughters. A loving father and proud Papa to his three grandchildren, Sal's greatest joy was spending time with his family.

He worked in the manufacturing industry for many years, at Goss & Deleeuw and Pratt and Whitney and spent the last fourteen years landscaping for Botticello Farms and caring for the grounds at Lake Compounce where he leaves many friends that he enjoyed meeting for coffee. Known for his simplicity and daily routines, including playing the lotto, he followed politics religiously, enjoyed putting together puzzles, and gardening, and had a love for all animals, especially the family dog, Paige. He will be greatly missed, leaving legacy of love for his family.

Sal leaves behind his devoted daughter, Nila Malone and her husband, Kenneth, with whom he made his home in Plainville, his adored grandchildren, Devin Greggory Faulkner, and Mara LeAnn and Mia LeAnn Malone; along with many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his daughter, LeAnn Mahmutovic, and his former wife and dear friend, Donna James. The last surviving of six children to the late Omer and Zlatka Mahmutovic, he was predeceased by his siblings, Smail, Kasim, Sehija, Alija and Muharem Mahmutovic.

Sal's family extends their appreciation to the chemo nurses at the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute at the Hospital of Central Connecticut for the care and compassion shown to him while he received treatments.
