Obituary of Albert Moncovich Sr.
Albert J. Moncovich Sr., age 89, of Stratford, beloved husband of the late Eleanor Charlotte (El) Gould Moncovich, passed away on Saturday, January 27, 2018 in Bridgeport Hospital with his loving family by his side. Born in Edwardsville, PA, he was a son of the late Emil Sr., and Helen Ortutai Moncovich. A U.S. Navy veteran of WW II, Albert was a retired tool and die inspector at Sikorsky Aircraft, and was a member of the American Legion Post 0200 in Rocky Hill.
Albert enjoyed the simple things in life. He loved woodworking, camping, the outdoors and could often be found surfing the web on his computer. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. But of all these things in life, the most treasured was time spent with family. The memories they created will live on in their hearts forever. He will be truly missed.

He also leaves his feline companion Randy. He was predeceased by his brother Emil Moncovich Jr.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Doctors and staff of the MICU at Bridgeport Hospital and his aides; Kiki, Doreen, Bella, Maggie and Samantha, for the care and professionalism shown to Albert.
