John H. Will

April 26, 1929October 4, 2013

John Henry Will, Jr., 84, died on October 4, 2013 at Glen Hill Care Center in Danbury after a brief illness. He was the husband of the late Constance Miller Will.

He was born April 26, 1929, in Danbury, the son of Margaret (Carroll) and John Will Sr. Mr. Will grew up in Danbury, graduating from Danbury High School in 1947. He then went to work, for a number of years as a salesman and sales manager with several local auto dealerships.

Mr. Will married Constance Miller on June 14, 1952. They lived in Bethel, and began their family there. They moved to Brookfield in 1955, where their third, fourth and fifth sons were born and raised.

He and his wife started The Tractor Barn in Brookfield in 1970, and ran it successfully for nine years. He entered the power equipment distribution field, while at the same time he and his wife co-owned The Dish House, also in Brookfield. He retired in 1996.

Mr. Will was politically involved in Brookfield for several years after his retirement. John was never one to pontificate what he did. He loved NASCAR, traveling, and his cats

He is survived by five children, John Will of Sandy Hook, CT, Kerry Will Morse of Yuma, AZ, Alan Will and David Will, both of Brookfield, CT and Peter Will of New Fairfield. His five grandchildren: Alan, Jr., Scott, Megan, Amy and Katherine. One great-grandchild: Jordan. Several nieces and nephews also survive. He was predeceased by his wife in 2007.

To the Will family,

Upon hearing of John's passing my first thought was now Connie and John are together again. They were a lovely and we enjoyed seeing them through the years. They were a strong, loving couple who made the most of life.

So sorry, John, Kerry, Allen, David and Peter. I remember when both John and Connie dropped by the 1973 Class of BHS reunion at Stony Hill Inn. It was the last time I saw them. I will always remember the Tractor Barn at the corner of 133 and Rte 7. RIP, Mr. Will.
