Anthony served in the U. S. Air Force Reserves for several years and was a salesman in the Gypsum Industry for many years.

Anthony will be fondly remembered and greatly missed for his infectious laugh, his entertaining jokes, stories, “singing abilities” and most of all the love he gave so freely – There is not a number high enough to quantify all the times Anthony expressed his love to his daughters, grandson, family and friends . We all consider ourselves lucky and blessed to have had such a loving man in our lives. Tony would want to be remembered as a man full of life, love, joy, and an undying faith.

    My heart is full of love for you and the entire Visconti family, and sadden for the lost of a lovely young man. I’ve only spoken with him on the phone and in the few conversation I felt like I’ve known him for ever. Especially when his two beautiful daguther would talk so highly about him. So just reminber, he maybe gone from this earth but his spirt and laughter will always be in our minds and hearts forever! God Bless.
