Obituary of Anthony Philip LiVolsi

Anthony Philip LiVolsi was born July 3rd, 1930 on a kitchen table in Brooklyn New York, brought into this world by his beautiful mother Grace. An avid car lover since his youth, he counted the Ford Model A as his favorite car ever to have rolled off an assembly line. A self taught mechanic, he tinkered on cars his entire life, always instilling the importance of regular oil changes to his children. A proud veteran, he fought in the Korean War and returned home to marry the love of his life, Sylvia. They raised a son Anthony, who has blessed them with two strapping grandchildren, Anthony Peter and Nicholas and two amazing great-grandchildren, AJ and Addi and a daughter, Maryann who continues to remain outside of the family’s good graces for not adding leaves to the family tree (…and yes, that is four Anthony’s if anyone is counting). Much to his own delight and amusement, he continually bestowed pearls of wisdom upon his family until the very end, a favorite being “When you’re broke, you’re a joke!” His passion for autos was only matched by his fondness for singing. He even recorded a YouTube video for Sylvia called “A love letter to my wife Sylvia…”, crooning Mario Lanza’s “Because of You” for their 57th wedding anniversary, the same song he serenaded her with on their Poconos honeymoon in 1957. This coming March would have been Anthony and Sylvia’s 65th wedding anniversary. They were very content in their crazy, trying, patient, forgiving, perfectly imperfect kind of love that spans a lifetime. Sylvia is anxiously awaiting the continuation of their love story, but until such time will suffer through the endless hugs and kisses from her adorable great-grandchildren. Anthony…beloved husband, father, grandpa and great-grandpa…we applaud your life well lived. Rest well ox In lieu of flowers please keep Anthony in your thoughts and prayers.
