Antonio De Francesco

March 16, 1939 - February 1, 2021

It is with deep sadness that the family announces the passing of Antonio De Francesco on Monday, February 1st, 2021 at the age of 81.

He will be forever remembered by his loving wife Irma Taddeo, as well as his three children Carmelina (spouse Sylvain), Roberto (spouse Teena), and Anita (spouse Roberto).

He will be terrible missed by his six grandchildren, Hailey, Dharma, Zackary, Mia, Angelina & Dalia.

Antonio will be remembered for his beautiful smile, kindness, honesty, sincerity, knowledge, charisma and generosity.

Particularly, for his homemade vino that he loved to share and was so proud of, his excitement in playing cards with the game of Scopa after every meal, and of course his long-time passion for tiling ceramics which he did to perfection.

He was a man who loved deeply, and was truly loved by so many. He made a difference in the lives of those around him.

PAPA, you will always be with us in spirit today, tomorrow, and forever more. Rest In Peace

  2. My deepest condolences to the De Francesco family. Your father was a great person who always made me smile when I would run into him.

My thoughts are with your family.

    We are so saddened and heart broken for your loss. We have beautiful memories of Zio Antonio. He was always happy, helpful and hospitable. We always enjoyed our visits with him and we could never leave without having a bite and a glass of wine. He took much pride in his garden and we always got the personal tour and some goodies. We will miss him very much. May you find comfort in your beautiful memories. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
    Love, Frank and Rose D’Uva

  9. Dear Francesco family,

    My heart breaks for you at the news of this great man’s passing, I never physically met Mr Antonio but I heard and saw so many great stories and pictures from Carmen, and I felt like I knew you, you carry such a bright & beautiful smile, you are now our guardian angel from heaven watching us like you did when you were here, just by meeting your family I could tell how much of a good father and Nonno you were. You might be physically gone but not forgotten, as your children and grandchildren are an example of what you taught them about life, love and family values. I know this because I can see it and feel it when I am with Carmen and her girls! This is how I know for sure that your legacy will always live on thru them.
    May you rest in peace and watch over us as you always did .. all my love Vanessa
