Peter J. Carbone, age 96, of Newtown, beloved husband of the late Gloria Borgognone Carbone, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 3, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

His faith was of great importance and evident as a longtime parishioner of St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Fairfield.
