Buzza, Edward P.Edward Philip Buzza, 89, joined his heavenly family on April 12, 2014 after a stay at Fellowship Manor, Whitehall. Born March 12, 1925 in Northampton, he was the son of the late Andrew and Katherine (Stenga) Buzza. He was predeceased by his wife of 48 years, Emma (Veres) Buzza. He was a graduate of Whitehall High School and attended Rutgers University. An army veteran of WWII, he served as a corporal in the 104th Infantry Division, the Timberwolves.
