Edmund V. Duda, Jr., 79, formerly of Belle Vernon, passed away Tuesday, August 4, 2020 at Belair Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center, Lower Burrell. Born February 27, 1941 in Monessen, PA. He was the son of the late Edmund (Rex) and Catherine Sedunov Duda. He was Catholic by faith and retired after a life-long career with Bell Atlantic and Southern Bell.
Ed loved to bowl, enjoyed NASCAR, family trips to Deep Creek, caring for his dogs, and the occasional Rusty Nail. He was in the U.S. Coast Guard for four years, and was a volunteer fireman with O.W.L., in Woodbridge, VA. His favorite colloquialism: They told me to cheer up, things could be worse. So, I cheered up and, sure enough, things got worse!

He is preceded in death by his son Patrick Duda.
