Waterbury – David M. Fama, age 55, of Waterbury, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, October 17, 2022, at Saint Mary’s Hospital. He was the husband to his loving wife Maria (Dauphinais) Fama for the past 35 years.

He also enjoyed cooking and spending time with his growing family and friends. He was a RedSox fan and an avid Buffalo Bills fan and loved watching all the games with his family. He loved fishing with his daughter and his son, but above all, he loved his grandchildren more than anything.
