WATERBURY Mr. R. Patrick Conway, 70, passed away Friday, Dec. 25, 2009, at Saint Mary's Hospital.

Born in Waterbury on March 17, 1939, he was the son of the late Edmund and Catherine (Lawlor) Conway. He was employed by Mattatuck Mfg. for many years and retired from the Robert Shaw Co. As a peacetime veteran of the U.S. Army stationed at West Point, he woke many soldiers each morning as the bugler. Later in life he played taps at military funerals in this area. He was a devout Catholic and parishioner of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, and he was an avid Boston Red Sox fan.

Patrick is survived by his sisters, Shirley Thiffault of Simsbury and JoAnn and her husband, Robert Beaudoin, of Wolcott; a sister-in-law, Gladys Conway of Waterbury; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a brother, Alfred Conway.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 29, at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, 74 West Main St., with burial to follow in New St. Joseph Cemetery. There are no calling hours. The DellaVecchia Funeral Home in Wolcott has been entrusted with the arrangements. Visit for online condolences and directions.

The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception or to the charity of the donor's choice
