Obituary

Feodor Konovalov, of Springfield MA, age 96, the beloved husband of his pre-deceased wife Galina Konovalov, and father of pre-deceased son, Leo Konovalov, passed away last Friday comfortably. He was born and raised in Borodino, Russia on February 17, 1919 and was the son of Alexey and Anna Konovalov. He attended and completed his fourth year of college in St Petersburg studying civil engineering when he was drafted into the Army to defend against the German invasion in World War II. He was stationed in Eastern Ukraine during the war and served as a Second Lieutenant in the Infantry Tank Brigade, until he was taken as a prisoner of war to a POW camp in Berlin Germany. While in Berlin, he met and later married his future wife. He, his wife Galina Konovalov, and their new born son Leo emigrated to the United States in 1949 and settled in Springfield MA. He leaves behind two children, George Konovalov of Sarasota FL, Natasha Konovalov Piantek of Charleston SC, two grandchildren Hilarie Crooks and Cory Romboletti, and 4 great grandchildren. He was employed as a Draftsman with United Engineers concentrating on tool design for Pratt & Whitney jet engines. He also contributed his time as the Warden, Property Manager, and communicant of St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church. His love and passion were to help the under privileged, contributing his time and whatever financial support was within his capability. His personality and smile lit up a room, and although that surely will be missed, his wish of re-uniting with his wife has come true, and for that we are glad.

Sharon, it's been a tough few months, hasn't it? As you have told me, Daddy Eddie didn't know who anyone was, but believe it, he did, somewhere deep down inside. You all still went to visit and spend time with him...that fact alone, should be of comfort. You father lived a very long life, and even though most of it wasn't in your day-to-day living, he was still your birth father...I am very thankful for that. He helped bring you into my life...to be a good friend (thru all these years) and a super dancing pal !!!!! If only we had just the dancing activity in our lives, perhaps then the pounds would just fall off....ha !!!! If only....ha ! Please pass on to your family, my deepest regards. I only was around Eddie a handful of times...but I am glad I had the opportunity. Until we get the chance to just kick back....or go for another girls weekend....I love you, never doubt or forget that. Thank you, Sharon, for calling to let me know of Daddy Eddie's passing. Always, Dee
