Obituary

Thomas William Conelias “Tom”, age 89, passed away peacefully on Sunday Dec. 13, 2020 after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Eileen Conelias (Ring) of Greenwich, CT.
He leaves behind his family , of whom he was most proud -daughters Kathryn Wile ( Michael) , Carolyn Conelias (Larry Nania), 5 grandchildren ; Kelly Milazzo(Robert) , Kimberly Faugno ( Patrick) , Erica Strazza( Joseph Pilloni) , Megan Wile and Thomas Wile (Erin) and 4 beautiful great-grandsons- who will miss their dear “Poppi” so much- Ryan, Grayson, Peyton and Thomas.
He was predeceased by his parents, Catherine “Kitty” and Jack Conelias and his brother, Philip Conelias. He is survived by his sister in law Helen Conelias, along with their children, Tom Conelias, John Conelias, Phyllis Monick and their families. Also he was predeceased by sister in law, Maureen Goley and husband Jim and brother in law Timothy Ring. He is survived by sister in law, Joan Ring and many nieces and nephews.
Tom was born in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and moved to Greenwich when he was a young child. He was raised and resided in Greenwich for most of his life where he graduated from Greenwich High School. He served his country, drafted into the Army in 1954, and was stationed in Germany. He was self-employed, owing a refuse collection business in Greenwich for over 40 years. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus for many years as well as a member of the Bocci Club of Greenwich, an independent social club, where he developed cherished, lifelong friendships. Golf was his sport and passion- he enjoyed playing until a few years ago. He was most proud of his hole- in - one at age 80!
He and Eileen enjoyed their retirement in Boca Raton, FL then returned to Greenwich in 2016 to be closer to their family.
Tom will be remembered as a kind and genuine man who focused on life’s most important things -- friends, family, hard work, honesty and integrity. He touched so many people over the course of his life.
Tom received Military Funeral Honors at the private services held at St. Mary’s Cemetery on December 15, 2020 arranged by Castiglione Funeral Home, Greenwich, CT.
A future memorial service will be planned when we all can gather safely.
Please consider donating in his memory to The Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich, 4 Horseneck Lane Greenwich, CT 06830
