The Passing of a Great Friend...

It is with great sadness we inform you that Cary Prague passed away today, Sunday, December 7. Cary was many things to many people, a wonderful husband, father, brother, son, and friend.
Cary was diagnosed with brain cancer 3 years ago. Without complaint, Cary endured many surgeries, countless chemotherapy and radiation treatments. He fought this dreaded disease with dignity. Through it all, Cary kept his commitment to South Windsor strong. He continued to serve with distinction as a member of the town council.
Among his many roles in South Windsor, there are a few that stand out – founder of the South Windsor Spelling Bee, Member of the Board of Education, Town Council, Chamber of Commerce, South Windsor Community Foundation and South Windsor Rotary Club to name a few. Cary has earned many awards for his service, such as Business Person of the Year, the coveted Gene Policelli Award, and the highest rotary award - Paul Harrison Award.
Many of his friends would say that Cary could get more done in an hour than most would get done in an entire day – he was always willing to help, giving of himself tirelessly. He touched the lives of many.
Please join me in extending our deepest sympathy to his wife Karen, son David and wife Tess, and sons Jeff and Alex.
Cary – it was an honor and privilege to know you – God Speed
