George S. “Bud” Fay, of East Hampton, passed away peacefully at home on September 1, 2021 after a long illness. He fought hard until the very end. Born in Hartford, CT, on July 14, 1938 to the late Velma Allen and George Fay. He was the loving husband and best friend of Doreen Noack Fay, sharing 60 wonderful years together. Bud attended schools in East Hartford and East Hampton, CT. He retired from the State of Connecticut D.O.T. as an equipment operator after 34 years. He then worked for several years for private construction companies. Bud and Doreen had a home in a small town called Kirby in Northern Vermont for many years. They restored an old house and property, which was a true labor of love. It was a very special place, holding memories of beautiful views and happy times shared with family, friends and neighbors. Bud was an avid catch and release fly fisherman, happiest when he could be in a river. He also had a passion for wood. He loved to cut, split, stack and burn wood. Always keeping his home warm and comfortable for his family.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by his three children who he was so proud of, George Stephen Fay Jr., Cheryl Siegmann and her husband William, Jodi Fay-Stubbings and her husband Daniel, his granddaughter, who always had a special place in his heart, Emily Foster and her husband Steven, two great granddaughters Madelyn and Lillian Foster. They always put a sparkle in his eyes and a smile on his face. He is also survived by his brother-in-law Keith Noack and his wife Lynn, who were a wonderful support during his illness, and also several cousins. He was predeceased by his daughter-in-law Sue Ann Fay. A special thank you to the East Hampton Volunteer Ambulance and police officers.
