Anthony loved to travel and always had endless stories to tell that kept you listening for hours. In his free time, Anthony was an avid reader and connoisseur of history. He was a collector of coins, stamps, and antiques. Anthony loved all music, broadway theater, and the arts. He loved to cook and was everyone's sous chef. Anthony always helped whenever asked; no was never in his vocabulary. His family was the cornerstone of his life and he will be greatly missed.
