    Our dearest Tucci Family,
    No words can fully describe the deep, deep hole that losing our forever friend has made in our hearts.
    I cannot get through a single day without thinking of him and having a good cry.
    He was your Mom’s rock……they were so devoted to each other and depended on each other for everything.
    Your Dad is free now, at peace and with our Lord……the ones he left behind will remember him till they meet again in Heaven.
    R.I.P. our beloved Anthony…..we will never forget you 💔💔💔

    Anthony was a kind soft spoken cousin I have nothing but fine memories of him from my childhood. My wife Carolyn and I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to his entire family. Sincerely , Gerard F Salerno

    May God grant Mr. Tucci his eternal reward in Heaven. God bless all of you. His beautiful, loving family is his legacy.

  • Ron Salerno June 27, 2023 2:59 pm

    Anthony is with the saints in Heaven now no doubt. He will always be remembered for his kindness to others, love of family, and his sense of humor that was uplifting. When I was in my teens, I remember Anthony and three of his friends recoding a song on our “new” device called a tape recorded. What a great voice and harmony his barbershop quartet had. The last I saw him was about a year ago and he hadn’t changed a bit – the same caring, happy cousin with a huge smile. God blessed him and his family!

    Anthony and Irene were the cousins of my dear, late wife, Janet. We saw them many times at family events, and it was always a pleasure and comfort to be with them.
    Anthony was a consummate gentleman, a great father, and a loving husband. My thoughts and prsyers are with Irene and their family.

  • Brian Carr June 28, 2023 2:19 pm

    RIP Uncle Tony. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Tucci Family. He was one of the nicest and kindest people I’ve ever met. I have many fond memories of family vacations in the Poconos, Mummers Parades, Phillies games, and family gatherings while growing up. Simply the Best!

  • Susan Andrews June 28, 2023 4:22 pm

    My heart and prayers are with Mr. Tucci’s family, friends, and with his daughter, Marcella, whom I consider the greatest of friends. May the sorrow of his passing fade into the joy that love isn’t just memory, but is always present—always exists, forever.

  • Marie A Tucci June 28, 2023 7:49 pm

    My dear, dear Bro. Scriptures tell us “… rather leave the body and go HOME to the LORD”. So, while my heart is broken, my comfort is that you are HOME with the LORD. Thanks for always being there for me especially math challenges. Say “hello” to Dad, Mom, John and Fran. You will be missed, for sure. Love 💘 you more, Marie (MAWA)

    Praying that God comforts your hearts in the days ahead.

  • Sharon B Brown June 29, 2023 10:38 am

    Dear Tucci Family,
    It is always difficult to lose someone you love. Be comforted by knowing that God is with you and you have the blessed hope of seeing him and being with him in heaven one day. I hope that every memory of Anthony brings a smile to your face and brightens your day.

    With sincerest sympathy,
    The Brown Family

    Farewell Uncle Tony, your abundant warm-heartedness and good humor were always contagious and always appreciated. You were a blessing to my parents and to all of us. The welcome I felt in South Philly always is a big reason the city is a part of my soul to this day, as is my love for great Italian food! My love and prayers go out Aunt Irene and all the Tucci’s.

  • Tim Carr June 29, 2023 10:42 pm

    What a great man! When someone we love leaves this world, I try not to focus on the pain we are all feeling. I thinks of the joy he is feeling in returning to his heavenly home. I so love the picture attached to this obituary for that reason. I will miss my Uncle Tony as will all of us. But in just a relatively brief while, we will return as well and get to see him again. My prayers have been going out to Aunt Irene, my cousins, and the whole Tucci family.

  • Ruth A Mininger July 1, 2023 12:16 pm

    My deepest sympathy. May loving memories ease your loss and bring you comfort.

  • Anthony’s daughter Marsia Tucci July 6, 2023 9:20 pm

    Dear Dad, I miss our daily phone calls and our conversations about progressive topics. I love and miss you so much!

  • Dear Anthony July 8, 2023 5:21 pm

    May your gentle soul Rest In Perfect Peace.
