Michael Wheeler

Apr 07, 1945 - Feb 17, 2024

location-icon

West Hartford, CT

Michael was a kind soul, generous with his time, hospitality, and humor. Before dawn on February 17, 2024, and in the company of his beloved daughter, Siobhan, he passed in the same humble, quiet manner in which he lived. And his was a full life well-lived.Born in Hartford on April 7, 1945 to Reynold and Gertrude Wheeler, Michael was the third of five children. He grew up with his family in a modest home on South Road in Farmington located on the land his relatives had farmed for two generations. There, Michael’s doting mother, who according to his sister June considered Michael her favorite child, nurtured his gentle manner. His father, a formidable man who by all accounts could (and did) build or fix anything, set a stern example of how to live to the exacting standards of the master craftsman that he was.As a child, Michael loved baseball. While his inability to hit a curveball ended his playing career too early, Michael’s love of the game never waned. As a devoted coach to his son Brendan’s Little League team, Michael dutifully pitched batting practice until he couldn’t lift his arm. He was a fixture in the stands as Siobhan and Brendan took to the diamond during their high school years. And of course, there was the Red Sox. Whether watching on TV at home or catching a game at Fenway, he reveled in the team’s ups and patiently endured their downs, never losing his sense of wonder in the magic they performed.As a student, Michael exhibited an uncanny agility with numbers. After graduating from Farmington High School in 1963, he attended St. Michael’s College in Colchester, Vermont, where in 1967 he earned a bachelor’s in mathematics. Michael found a fit for his talents at The Hartford Insurance Company, where we worked as an actuary for over 20 years. At the outset of his career, he earned a master’s degree in mathematics from the University of Connecticut in 1973. As his career progressed, Michael even wrote test questions that appeared in the battery of professional certification exams all actuaries nationwide had to complete.Although he would never say so himself, Michael was an able marksman. In his youth, he won shooting competitions, sometimes bringing home a Thanksgiving turkey as prize. But as a young naval officer in Vietnam, his sharpshooting had a much more serious application. Michael served as the gunnery officer aboard the U.S.S. Westchester County, a flat-bottomed sea-going tank landing ship that could operate in Vietnam’s rivers. On November 1, 1968, he fought through the deadliest attack suffered by the U.S. Navy during the war, when Vietnamese frogmen placed mines below his ship’s waterline that exploded, ripping through the hull, killing 25 men onboard. Michael revered the U.S. Navy, cherished his service at sea, and honored all those who have served in the military.After his honorable discharge in 1970, Michael retuned to the Hartford area, where he met Bridget “Bridie” Ahern, a Kerry woman and nurse at St. Francis Hospital, whom he married in 1973. In February 1975, they welcomed the birth of Siobhan on the same day they closed on their house on Arundel Avenue in West Hartford where Michael lived for nearly 50 years in until his death. And two years later in 1977, Brendan was born, completing the West Hartford Wheeler clan.Michael soon settled into the familiar routine of suburban life -- family, work, school, church, summer weekends at the beach house at Old Lyme Shores with his brothers and sisters, and the kids’ sports and activities. To unwind from it all, he picked at the banjo and savored his long walks and bike rides through West Hartford. But without complaint, he paid the heavy dues familiar to every dedicated hockey parent – countless hours driving through winter weather to games, and countless more standing frozen in frigid ice rinks, offering his kids his warm, heartfelt support no matter the outcome of the contest.Most summers, Michael brought Bridie and the kids to Killorglin in County Kerry, Ireland to visit Bridie’s parents and siblings and their children. He embraced the charms of Irish country life, and won the hearts of the extended Ahern clan with his easy manner, “Yank” humor, and endless curiosity about Irish history and culture. He dreamed of building a house outside Killorglin. And from the first appearance of the Internet at his Arundel Avenue home until his death, Michael was a voracious consumer of Irish news, making him as credible a commentator on Irish affairs as could be found on this side of the Atlantic.Eventually, the seasons of his life changed, the kids graduated into careers on their own, and in 2009 the unthinkable happened: Michael’s bride of 36 years passed. It was at this time, with Brendan married and posted overseas, a father-daughter friendship for the ages grew into its own. Together, Michael and Siobhan traveled the length of New England, attending football games, hiking, picnicking, or just simply seeing the sights. They also traveled overseas to Ireland to attend family weddings or to wherever Brendan was posted at the time, including to Egypt for a thrilling trip up the Nile River and back into the age of the Pharaohs.In recent years, the consequences of Michael’s declining health tested his soul to its core. But instead of breaking him, the adversities he overcame revealed the bottomless depth of his faith, perseverance, and grace. And it is in celebration of his inspiring example of a full life well lived that we, his family, say farewell to Michael – a son, a brother, a father, a grandfather, a veteran, a friend, and now, a gentle soul taken to Heaven by God for blessed eternity.Michael is survived by his daughter, Siobhan Wheeler; his son, Brendan Wheeler and his wife, Gina Reynolds-Wheeler and their daughter, Lucy Wheeler; his brother, David Wheeler and his wife, Linda Wheeler; his sister, June McKeon and her husband, Charles Friedman; his brother, Joseph Wheeler and his wife, Patricia Watras; and his sister, Elizabeth Wheeler.Friends may call at The Ahern Funeral Home, 111 Main St., Rt. 4, Unionville on Wednesday (Feb 21), from 3 – 7 pm. Funeral procession from the Ahern Funeral Home will be Thursday (Feb 22) at 9:15 am followed by the Funeral Liturgy in the Church of St. Peter Claver, 47 Pleasant Street, West Hartford at 10:00 am. Burial with full Naval Honors will follow at Fairview Cemetery, West Hartford.In remembrance of Michael’s life the family asks that any charitable donations be made to St. Michael’s College. You can make donations directly at https://engage.smcvt.edu/give or by contacting the Office of Institutional Advancement at 888-448-7111 or giving@smcvt.edu.

Linda Maxwell Kuhnmuench Crowe

Dec 13, 1943 - Feb 13, 2024

location-icon

West Hartford, CT

"Whether you were telling her of heartbreak and disappointment or sharing joy and elation, Linda Maxwell Kuhnmuench Crowe always seemed to understand. And she would rejoice or mourn right along with you. She had a special capacity for compassion and empathy and, when needed, she stepped in and acted on it. Just days before Linda died, Jaime Jackson Larsen sent Linda this message: “Everything I have today is because you took me in and guided me through when I needed someone like you the most.\u0026quot; Linda passed away Feb. 13, 2024, in West Hartford, Conn. surrounded by the love of her sister, Suzanne, her sons John, Jeffrey, Zachary and Maxwell as well as dear friends who visited days earlier. She was 80. “Linda was a kind, loyal, generous and loving friend,” said Liz Florio, former neighbor and friend of 38 years. Born to John and Patricia Maxwell on Dec 13, 1943 in West Hartford, she was the oldest daughter among the family’s six children. She attended Putnam Academy and went on to graduate from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis. in 1967. She married John Kuhmuench and the couple had two boys, John and Jeffrey. The pair later divorced and Linda went on to marry screenwriter Christopher Crowe and moved to Los Angeles where she would live for more than 45 years. She and Christopher had two boys, Zachary and Maxwell. Linda was a devoted mother, making countless trips to Tar Pits museum, the tide pools at the beach in Tarzana, surf shops, craft stores and spent many an hour helping them with elaborate homework projects. “One thing for certain is that she loved her boys,” said close friend Sanna Stein. She was a consummate caretaker, pampering family and friends with exquisite cooking, insisting on the freshest ingredients, and was known to send one shopper back to the store with vegetables that weren’t up to her standards. She loved hiking in Coldwater and Laurel canyons near her longtime home in North Hollywood, and cherished times walking her beloved dog, Boxer, through the hills. Linda was an avid reader, a quiet intellect and happiest in later years when surrounded by her books — poetry, philosophy, history, spirituality, psychology. “So intelligent and innately wise,” Sanna added. Linda also suffered loss and trauma and struggled with strained relationships. But she was a survivor and most often used her hurt as a blessing to minister to other women in need of healing. Beauty for ashes. She sought solace and wisdom through dream work and wilderness excursions. She was courageous and loved to tell stories about her times sleeping alone in the desert. She took pride and pleasure in tutoring friends’ kids, reading them classic books and opening their hearts to the world in a special way. She loved scarves and all things cashmere, simple and elegant clothes. Sterling silver over gold. Dark chocolate. At 5’2” and never more than 110 pounds, Linda was petite in stature, but filled the space around her with kindness, love and laughter. A unique soul whose presence on earth will be deeply missed. Linda was preceded in death by her daughter Laurie Wade, brothers Robert, Jeffrey, John (Terry) Maxwell and sister Laurie Maxwell. She is survived by sister Suzanne Bailey-Gates, sons John and Jeffrey Kuhnmuench, Zachary and Maxwell Crowe, and grandsons Maxwell and Bodhi Kuhnmuench. A memorial is being planned for spring in Los Angeles. Donations can be made in her honor to the Alzheimer’s Association."

West Hartford, CT

"It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. William (Bill) Hewett, a brilliant soul whose presence illuminated the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know him. Bill departed this world on February 2, shortly after celebrating his 88th birthday with family and friends on January 27. He leaves behind a legacy of love, wisdom, and enduring memories. Bill was born in Buffalo, NY to Dr. Joseph and Ruth (Yensan) Hewett. He was the eldest brother to James, Mary, Donald, David, and Elizabeth. Through his esteemed lineage, he was granted a membership in the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. Bill graduated from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. In 1961, he obtained a medical degree from the University of Buffalo School of Medicine and went on to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology. He began his career as a Captain and received a promotion to Major in the US Army, where he served as a medical officer for 3 years stationed in Heidelberg, Germany. Upon returning to the States, he joined a practice at Hartford Hospital. For nearly 30 years he served as a member of the Hartford Hospital medical staff and the University of Connecticut (UCONN) medical staff. During this time Dr. Hewett honed his specialty and began a successful practice as a Gynecologic Oncologist, lending his expertise and time serving on several medical boards, impacting the lives of many. His notable leadership roles included President of the Mid-Atlantic Gynecologic Oncology Society (MAGOS), and President of both the New England and Connecticut American Cancer Societies. He was the recipient of the Dr. George Sheehan Award for his unwavering commitment to humanity. In his leisure time, Bill enjoyed playing golf and tennis and was a former member of the Hartford Tennis Club, Farmington Field Club and the Country Club of Farmington. At age 55, Bill decided to pursue his dream to be a pilot. He obtained his Private Pilot License with an Instrument Rating, as well as a Certified Instructor License and many other flight certifications. He especially loved spending time “in the air” and enjoyed a second career being employed at the Brainard Airport in Hartford, CT. Upon retiring from flying, he volunteered as a docent at the New England Air Museum and was an active member in the Connecticut Old Guard and a WWII History Book Club. Bill’s real passion was teaching. He had an incredible mind that constantly inspired those around him. Whether he was at the operating table, in the clinic or his office (his preferred classrooms), giving flying lessons from the cockpit of his Cessna 182 (2351G), leading tours at the air museum dispensing fascinating historical details about WWII, or sharing his vast general knowledge on almost any topic, Bill will undoubtedly be remembered by many whose lives were enriched by his friendship and guidance. Bill is survived by his devoted wife and life partner, Marian (Forti) Hewett, and his 8 children Lori (Hazard) Demaria, Terri (Hazard) Bonee, Amy Hewett, Jodi (Hazard) Mallon, Michael Hewett, Catherine Hewett, Jacqui (Hazard) O’Keefe and William J. Hewett, Jr. along with their spouses and 17 grandchildren. The family wishes to express their special thanks to Renee Green for her invaluable help over the past 4 years, and most recently the hospice services provided by Hartford HealthCare at Home. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating “in memory of Dr. William J. Hewett” to Parkinson’s Foundation at 1359 Broadway Unit 1509, NYC, NY 10018 or Hartford HealthCare at Home- Hospice at 1290 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield, CT 06109 or any charity of your choice. A memorial service is planned for Spring 2024. In the meantime, please help remember Bill by sharing your memories at Molloy Funeral Home: https://www.molloyfuneralhome.com/."
