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.
