Antonio was born in Malito, Italy and came to Ellis Island on the Rex with his mother as a toddler.  He spent his childhood living  in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia before relocating to the Rhawnhurst section of the city as a young man. He attended West Chester College where he earned his teaching degree in 1958.   There he was able to put his barber skills to good use on his classmates for pocket money.  After graduation, he spent over thirty years working for the School District of Philadelphia as a High School Geography teacher.  After retirement, Tony moved to Huntingdon Valley where he was welcomed by his wonderful neighbors.  He was a dedicated parishioner of St. Albert the Great and an avid tennis player at the Delaware Valley Tennis Club. For many winters Tony enjoyed playing tennis in the warmer weather at the Tennis Club of Palm Beach in West Palm Beach, Fl.  Tony was a lifelong passionate Philadelphia sports fan. He enjoyed long walks around the neighborhood, tennis matches three times a week,  Saturday evening mass, and regular early bird dinners at Gallo’s.  He will be deeply missed by family and friends.
