Raymond Duval

Obituary of Raymond H. Duval

Raymond Duval of Wauregan entered into the kingdom of heaven on March 8, 2024, after a brief illness, which he faced with dignity and bravery.  Born on July 19, 1938, in Wauregan, CT, he was the son of the late Romeo and Evelyn (Goven) Duval.  He grew up in Wauregan surrounded by friends, many of whom would become lifelong friends.

While growing up in Wauregan, he met the love of his life and wife of 61 years, Eileen (Gelinas) Duval. They married on October 13, 1962, and the two settled down and started a family, of which he was so proud. They had three beloved boys, Robert, Matthew, and Andrew. Immediately after graduating from Plainfield High School in 1957, he went to work at Field Concrete Pipe where he remained for 43 years until his retirement in 2000.

Besides his family, his true passion lay in the Atwood Hose Fire Company, where he was a life member and served as Chief from 1980-1990. He was so proud that his three boys followed his footsteps and joined the fire company and spent their lives serving others as first responders.

Raymond also was a faithful member and Eucharistic Minister of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Wauregan, and in his later years St. James Catholic Church in Killingly.

He leaves behind his loving family: his wife Eileen; sons Robert (and his wife Donna) of Wauregan, Matthew (his wife Rebecca) of Manchester, and Andrew (his wife Bethany) of Wauregan; grandchildren Sarah (her husband Brandon), Nathaniel (his fiancé Kayla), Andrew Jr, Caleb, Madelyn, Lea, and Amelia; great-granddaughter Maya, and his sister Margret.  He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

He was predeceased by his parents Romeo and Evelyn, his siblings Romeo Jr, Cecile, and Eileen.  

Above all, Raymond will be remembered as a loving family man. He was always at his kids and grandkids school concerts, recitals, plays and major life events. He loved his family with his whole heart and his loss will be deeply felt by them.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks that donations be made in Raymond’s name to The Atwood Hose Fire Company  PO Box 14 Wauregan, CT 06387
