1933 - 2023
Anthony J Nenni (“Tony”), a long-time resident of the Village of Wappingers Falls NY, passed away on Saturday May 14th at The Paramount at Somers Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Somers NY where he was battling dementia. He was 90 years old.
Tony was born on March 6, 1933, to Ralph and Julia (Lucaluce) Nenni and was the youngest of 12 children. He spent most of his life on Franklindale Avenue and was one of the “Irontown Boys.”
Tony graduated from the Wappingers Central School in 1952. He served in the U.S. Army from February 1953 through January 1955 and was stationed in Korea. He worked as a tool maker and was employed at Shatz Federal Bearing and later at IBM. He retired from IBM on March 31, 1995.
Tony was quiet and always smiling. He’d never got angry even when his nieces and nephews would find his candy stash and leave it empty. And he always had a candy stash. He loved to hangout on Sunday afternoons in his hammock, listen to the radio and enjoy a beer or two. He always looked forward to his yearly fishing trips up north with his brothers. He loved music, playing golf and cruising the seas with his partner, Barbara Armond. Even at the nursing home you could bring a smile to his face by bringing him a piece of candy and playing music by Frank Sinatra.
Tony was predeceased by his longtime partner, Barbara Armond. He was also predeceased by all but one of his siblings, Ralph Nenni of Wappingers Falls. He is survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
