William Dennis "Bill" Elovecky

Obituary Condolences

William Dennis Elovecky of Manchester, died Monday (March 18, 2002). Born December 10, 1956, he was raised in Monroe, graduating from Masuk High School, where he served four years as president of the Class of 1974. He was active in Boy Scouts of America for many years during his childhood, and received the prestigious BSA Eagle Scout Award in 1973. He served in the U.S. Air Force as a Cryptographic Equipment Systems specialist from 1974-1978, stationed in Tampa, FL. Bill was an Information Technology specialist with the IBM Corporation, and was fiercely proud of his membership in their organization. He was hired by IBM in 1978, after his service discharge, and remained a loyal employee throughout his years. Bill attended night classes at CCSU from 1988-1998, where he received his U.S. Degree in Industrial Technology. Bill became a private pilot in 1985 and loved flying. He was treasurer of the Ct. Valley Flyers Aviation Club at Brainard Field, with whom he co-owned his plane. He was an associate member of the French Social Circle of East Hartford. His love of music inspired his expansive music collection, and he also enjoyed listening to audio books, especially of his favorite author Stephen King. He was an avid UCONN Huskies Women's basketball fan, attending games regularly. To the delight of Bill's friends, his hobbies included cooking and making his own beer and wine. Bill was proud of his knowledge of American Sign Language, which he employed at every opportunity. Of recent, Bill concerned himself deeply with colon cancer awareness and research, and was pursuing a project to help fund the National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance. Bill was the beloved husband of Rinette Bouchard Elovecky, his late wife. They were loving soul-mates who were never meant to be apart. Bill will be greatly and sadly missed, but we now seek solace in their joyful spiritual reunion. Bill was the son of the late Stanley Elovecky and the late Mary (Stromsky) Elovecky of Monroe. He is survived by his son, Michael Elovecky, currently in the U.S. Army stationed in Germany, and daughter-in-law Jennifer; and three grandsons, Robert, Michael, and Alexander. In great sadness, he leaves his brother and sister-in-law, David and Carol Elovecky of Southbury; his brother, Stanley Elovecky of Monroe; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by two brothers, Michael and Robert Elovecky. He will be deeply missed by his dearest friends, Claude and Linda Rossignol, and David and Jeannine Manson. Bill had an extraordinary mind and a beautiful loving heart, which he generously shared with everyone he met. He therefore leaves behind numerous very close relatives and friends, whom he proudly embraced as "his tribe," who will miss his free and loving spirit in their lives forever. A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, April 6, 11 a.m., at the The First Church of Christ Congregational, 2183 Main Street, Glastonbury. There will be no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to NCCRA, (National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance) c/o EIF, 11132 Ventura Blvd., Suite 401, Studio City, CA 91604. The Newkirk & Whitney Funeral Home of East Hartford, has been entrusted with the arrangements.
