Raymond M. Turek, 78 of Enfield, beloved husband of Janice (Pikul) Turek for 49 years passed away Sunday, March 4, 2018, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Enfield, son of the late Anthony and Veronica (Gucwa) Turek, he was a proud, life-long resident of town and an active communicant of Holy Family Church. Ray graduated from Enfield High School in 1958, later receiving his BA from UCONN and his MA in education from Southern Connecticut State University. Ray devoted his life to the passion of teaching, both in the classroom and on the field. He began his career as a physical education teacher at St. Paul’s School in New Britain, and worked for the Bristol Public Schools for over 32 years, retiring in 2000. Affectionately known as “Coach,” Ray imparted his love of the game to many generations of children within his school community and hometown, coaching his children and grandchildren’s teams in baseball, basketball, and soccer. Ray was a member of the K of C in Enfield and enjoyed cards, golfing, and bowling with his friends. Ray carried his family’s agricultural heritage into his own vegetable and flower gardens, both a great sense of pride. He was an avid UCONN sports and Red Sox fan, but it was his family that brought him the most joy. He never missed an opportunity to be with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Besides his wife Janice, he leaves two daughters Michelle Turek and her fiancé John Fahey of Enfield, Tammy D’Aloia and her husband Jason of Stratford; his son Raymond M. Turek and his wife Marsha of Bethel; his eight precious grandchildren, to whom he was known as “Djiadziu”, Brendan and Jenna Fahey; Brianna, Michael, Sarah, and Samantha D’Aloia; and Rachael and Emily Turek; and a sister Lorraine Tweeddale and husband George of Enfield. His family will receive friends Thursday, March 8, 2018 from 5-8 pm at the Carmon Windsor Funeral Home, 807 Bloomfield Avenue, Windsor. Family and friends may gather Friday, March 9, 2018, 9 am at Carmon’s in Windsor followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 am at Holy Family Church, Parish of Saint Jeanne Jugan, 23 Simon Road, Enfield. Burial will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery, Poquonock. Contributions may be made to the American Heart Association (Jump Rope for Heart Program), 1 Union St. Suite 301, Robbinsville, NJ 08691.
