Obituary of Roger W. O'Connell, Jr.

Please share a memory of Roger to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Roger William O’Connell Jr. left this world on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.   After several months of declining health, Roger passed peacefully with his wife Dana and daughter Sara at his side.  We have lost a wonderful husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, coach and health care provider.

 

Roger was born on June 2, 1958 to Roger William O’Connell Sr. and Elizabeth McGreal in New Haven, CT.  He graduated from Trinity College in 1983 and from Quinnipiac University, Masters in Health Science, Physician Assistant in 1998. Roger and his family settled in Glastonbury in 1999 and built a life he was proud of.  He was a respected Physician Assistant for almost 25 years working at several hospitals throughout CT notably St. Francis Hospital and recently Community Health Centers (CHC). He was an avid sports fan whose favorite teams included the Yankees, Steelers and Celtics and could always be counted on to watch every single game. Golf was also a favorite pastime and he always loved playing with his son, daughter, brother, father, relatives and friends.

 

One of Roger’s greatest passions during his lifetime was watching and coaching both of his children on the ball field.  He was an incredible teacher and helped mold the lives of so many over the years.  His family holds so many fond memories of the great times spent with the players, coaches and family members over years of games.

 

He leaves behind his loving wife Dana, son Kevin, daughter Sara, brother Paul and a countless number of caring family and friends.

 

Visitation will be held on Saturday February 12, 2022 from 12-3pm at Mulryan Funeral Home, 725 Hebron Ave, Glastonbury, CT 06033. In lieu of flowers, a GoFundMe page at
