EVENT RECAP GALLERY
The William J. May III Service Above Self Awards
Bill May was all about honor, and service. The House of Heroes Connecticut Chapter cofounder,
who passed away in December 2016 following a two-year battle with cancer, made a life of serving both his country and his fellow comrades in need through his devotion to the House of Heroes mission. In Bill’s final months, he worked tirelessly in his dual roles as chairman of both House of Heroes National and the Connecticut Chapter to do all he could to expand House of Heroes nationwide impact. One thing Bill knew was that he could not do it alone - fulfillment of the House of Heroes mission was then, and remains today, dependent upon an army of advocates,
volunteers, sponsors and supporters who make our work possible. So it is only fitting that Bill, and his legacy of service, be celebrated by honoring, on an annual basis, those vital supporters who help us keep Bill’s dream alive. House of Heroes Connecticut is proud to introduce this year its
inaugural William J. May III Service Above Self Awards, to be presented annually to a sponsor, contractor & volunteer whose selfless contributions help make our mission possible.
Congratulations to this year’s honorees! Your time, talents and financial support are fitting tributes to Bill May’s legacy, and are helping House of Heroes Connecticut continue to Make a Difference in a Day for deserving Connecticut veterans. Thank you!

Michael Stowe has carpentry in his blood. Michael’s grandfather ran lumber yards in Stratford and Bridgeport, he worked as an apprentice with the finest master carpenters in Fairfield County and owned his own construction company for 15 years. Helping others, too, is part of his DNA, ever since when, working for the Town of Stratford, he started an impromptu holiday campaign to decorate a local home and told the homeowner afterward “don’t you ever give up on Christmas.” HOHCT has benefitted from Michael’s talent and generosity since 2020, relying on his expertise to help the organization manage its ever-growing schedule of projects. Thank you, Michael Stowe!
