GUY FRANCIS LINZA (Age 92) died peacefully and surrounded by family on Monday, October 10, 2022.

Born GAETANO FRANCESCO LINZA as a U.S. citizen in Lago, Italy, the son of Domenico and Maria (Runco) Linza. The family moved to America, to Greene County Pennsylvania, when Guy was 8-years old. He graduated from Mapletown HS, and received a bachelor's degree in accounting from West Virginia University. Upon graduation, he served his country in the US Army Europe, Heidelberg. Following his honorable discharge, Guy returned to Pennsylvania to marry his sweetheart Lucille Zoldos in 1957, and they soon moved to northern Virginia to raise a family; initially Arlington before settling in Vienna, their home for the past 53 years.

Guy achieved a 35-year career as a Federal employee, starting as a special agent for the Bureau of the Mint, and then moving to financial management assignments at a variety of Federal agencies, including U.S.Customs, HUD, and HHS. He received many awards and commendations over his career, including directly from the Secretary of the Treasury. Guy was an active community member. He was a charter board member of the Capitol Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, a long-time volunteer starter and marshall at Oak Marr golf complex (and even carded a hole-in-one!), and a 20-year licensed realtor helping many family and friends find homes. Guy and Lucille spent many happy years in retirement, extensively traveled the world, and as doting grandparents.

Most of all, Guy loved his family. He was the patriarch and could always be counted on for support or wise advice. Guy is survived by his beloved wife of 65 years, Lucille; son Joseph, daughter Susan (husband Rob), and son Stephen; and grandchildren Michael (wife Xochilt), Charlotte, Grant, Andrew, Brooke, Paul, and Domenic; brother James and sister Bernice.
