Albert Buday

Buday, Albert G.
Buday- Albert George "Algy" Buday, age 74, of Trumbull, beloved husband of Eleanor Sabo-Buday, passed away on February 1, 2013 in St. Vincent's Medical Center.
In addition to his devoted wife, ELeanor, Algy will be remembered by his daughter, Lauren Buday-Kali, of Trumbull; his grandson, Maxwell Albert Kali, of Trumbull; one sister, Margaret McCarthy, of Monroe; one brother-in-law, Joseph Sabo, and his wife, Rhonda, of CA; many nieces, nephews, cousins, greatnieces, greatnephews, and a great greatnieces and great greatnephew. He was predeceased by his parents, Dr. Albert and Louise Veronsi Buday, his mother-in-law, Mary Sabo, and brother, Anthony Giaquinto.
Algy graduated from Fairfield Prep in 1956, and continued his education in Fairleigh Dickinson University and University of Maryland before receiving his sixth year degree from Fairfield University. A retired biology teacher, Algy taught for 33 years at Chalk Hill Elementary School in Monroe.
Born during the hurricane of 1938, he lived his life until the very end with that type of elemental energyy and force. Algy loved his family immensely and enjoyed the company of a wide variety of friends. And for all of them, he always had that certain smile and engaging sense of humor. His interests were eclectic, ranging from an affinity for sports (especially boxing and football), a love of films and entertainment, as well as fine dining, with drinks and lively conversation.
He was, in many respects, a man for all seasons. Algy always related that, when his life was over, he desired an announcement that simply and yet profoundly said "Game called".
Calling hours will be held on Wednesday from 4-8PM in the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home, 1209 Post Road, in Fairfield Center. A memorial Mass will be celebrated on Thursday at 10AM in Christ the King Church, 4700 Madison Avenue, in Trumbull, with his interment to follow in Lawncroft Cemetery.
Contributions in his memory may be made to: Amercian , 5 Brookside Drive, Wallingford,CT 06492.
