It is with great sadness that Anthony L. Tornabe, 86, died Thursday, March 14, 2019 following a brief illness.
Born and raised in New York City, Anthony was a long-time resident of Jersey City. He was a man of deep faith, who enjoyed the company of friends and family - his wonderful smile would light up a room.
After serving in the Korean War and a member of the Catholic War Veterans, Anthony met the love of his life Josephine (nee) Altomonte. He worked for Rolls Royce and retired after 35 years as a computer operator at the U.S. Trust Co. N.Y.
Anthony is survived by his children Josephine and Roland Romano, Mary Louise Tornabe and Philip Jordan; grandchildren Christopher Romano and Michelle and Robert Fanning, brother Salvatore and sister-in-law Etta Tornabe. He will be remembered as "Uncle Tony" by numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.
Anthony was preceded in death by his loving wife Josephine of 50 years, parents Dominick and Mary (nee) Buffalino, brother Mario and sister and brother-in-laws Frank and Agnes Ferrara.
