Obituary

Roger John Mieczkowski, 78, of Coventry, beloved husband of the late Donna Kaye Mieczkowski, passed away on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.

He was born January 31, 1941 in New Britain Connecticut, son of the late Matthew Edward and Mary Barbara Mieczkowski (Orzechowski). Roger graduated New Britain Senior High School in 1958, and like his father before him went on to college to become a pharmacist. He graduated from the University of Connecticut in 1963 with a BS in pharmacy and later with a Doctor of Pharmacy.

While interning at Hartford Hospital, he met his future wife, Donna. They were married in April of 1964 and had two sons. In the summer of 1970 they moved to Coventry, Connecticut where he would live for the rest of his life.
Roger was a pharmacist in Manchester for almost 50 years. Most of those years were spent at Liggett’s in the Parkade, and then in the early ‘90s at Stop & Shop. He was loved by his many customers and made a lot of friends that would last throughout the years. He was a great athlete, having played basketball in high school and was an avid golfer as well. Whether it was bowling at the Parkade Lanes or golfing at Twin Hills or Skungamaug River Golf Club, Roger always kept himself busy.

Two of his big passions were television antennas and taking great care of his lawn. People always said he had the greatest lawn in the neighborhood. He was a workaholic who took pride in what he did. He even had worked for many years on his day off at Ellington pharmacy.
Roger loved to laugh and had a great sense of humor. He loved a good joke and impressions too.
Roger is survived by his two sons, Christopher John Mieczkowski of Coventry and Timothy Mieczkowski and his wife Lauren of East Hartford and his sister Marsha Rutz of Gill, Massachusetts. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother Matthew Mieczkowski Jr. and his wife Donna Mieczkowski.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to everyone with Woodlake at Tolland and the AMU at Manchester Memorial Hospital and everyone there for their care and kindness to Roger. Relatives and friends may join the family on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 between 4pm-6pm with a Funeral Home Service at 6pm at The Coventry-Pietras Funeral Home, 2665 Boston Turnpike, Coventry. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family. For online condolences please visit www.pietrasfuneralhome.com.

Family-
I just found Roger's obituary online, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. I graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy in 1963 as well. Roger and I both lived in Litchfield Hall. In fact, we lived at end of the same floor our last year there. I have many pleasant memories of Roger from those times. I last spoke with him when I called him before our 50th reunion. He said that he was not well enough to consider attending. May he be at peace.
Sincerely
Richard E. Rumrill
