Born in Carbondale, son of the late Giacomo and Angelina Rei Pettinato, he was an electrical engineer for IBM before retirement and was an Army veteran, serving during the Korean Conflict.
Tony was all about family and friends. He was especially proud to be a grandfather and great grandfather. He demonstrated his love every day. Ever the supportive presence, he was viewed by all as a role model, using his many gifts to inspire those around him. Tony was a strong kind man. His story telling was world renowned, he summarized life lessons in simple expressions, he could carry on a conversation with anyone, and he was always available to lend a helping hand. He loved dancing the twist. His legacy will live on in all of us. He was loved more than words can express.
