Castagna, 70, of Coventry, cherished husband of 48 years to Susan (Parente) Castagna, passed away peacefully on May 30, 2020. He was born on September 30, 1949, in Hartford to the late Tonino and Sebastiana (Pinnone) Castagna. He grew up in the south end and graduated from Bulkeley High School. Tony worked as a shift supervisor for the Metropolitan District Commission W.P.F. for over 20 years, where he built lasting friendships, until his retirement in 2011. Tony loved life. He had an infectious smile and could put anyone at ease with one of his one-liners after just meeting him. He loved to laugh but he loved making other people laugh even more. Even after Frontotemporal Dementia "FTD" took his ability to speak, Tony kept his laugh. He was an outdoorsman, spending many of his days hunting, fishing, and boating. He taught all three of his daughters and his oldest granddaughter how to fish. Tony enjoyed doo-wop music, dancing, old western movies, a decent cigar, Sunday afternoons with his family, and the NY Giants. Besides his wife, he leaves behind his daughters, Gina Alderucci of South Glastonbury, Lauren Frisbie and her husband Richard of Tolland, and Christina Charest and her husband Mark of Tolland; his grandchildren, who lovingly knew him as Grampy, Ariyana, Richard, Jr., Gianna, Mia, Keirra, Kayden and Kenley; as well as his brothers, John, Vincent and Pasquale and a sister Diana, an Uncle, Pat Castagna and an Aunt, Luisa Grogan, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Tony was a strong, kindhearted, and devoted family man and will be missed every day. Private funeral services will be held Monday, June 8, 2020, which will be live streamed starting at 10:30am, through Tony's web page on farleysullivan.com. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are requested to The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration, 2700 Horizon Drive, Suite 120, King of Prussia, PA 19406.
