Anthony F. Duva (Tony), age 84, of Trumbull, beloved husband of Lucy Cortello Duva, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 8, 2016 at St. Vincent’s Medical Center surrounded by his loving family.

An avid golfer, he was a member of the Tashua Knolls Men’s Senior Golf Club, and was a member of the Easton Lions Club. A dedicated husband, father and grandfather, he was a loving and giving man who treasured the time spent with family, especially his grandchildren.

He enjoyed life to the fullest and expressed it in everything he did.  The memories and love that Tony showed will continue to live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.
