Anthony worked at Selecto Flash for over 30 years; the remainder of his career was spent with FLM Graphics. Anthony was a talented Mr. Fix-It, a skilled painter; he loved to build, create, and work on projects. He enjoyed sitting on the deck and spending time with his loved ones. Anthony especially looked forward to driving down the shore and enjoying his annual family vacation at Wildwood.
