AMMIRATI, Antonio (Tony)

June 4, 1933 – Castelsilano, Crotone, Italy

Tony loved nothing better than to be in the great outdoors. He loved to hunt, fish, and spend countless hours tending his beautiful vegetable garden. Enjoying family lunches at the table together every Sunday for decades is what we will miss dearly. He lived life fiercely, working hard, and helping everyone that he could. We love you and miss you beyond words.

    We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Tony. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family as this will be a very difficult time. No matter how old or how young, how sick or how healthy, it’s always hard to say goodbye to another loved one. I can only imagine right now that my dad (Sam Ammirati) is sitting alongside Tony and they are catching up on old times, up in heaven. Many hugs and condolences for those left behind.
