Anthony J. “Gardy” Guarneri, 95, Carbondale, died Thursday at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore. His wife, of 68 years, is Lillian Gentline Guarneri.
Born in Carbondale, son of the late Onofrio and Lena Norella Guarneri, Tony was a TRUE GENTLEMAN who was extremely devoted and dedicated to his family and to his many friends in life. Tony was especially devoted to his wife Lillian, his daughters, three grandchildren and five great grandchildren. It was always “family first” with Tony.
Lovingly known by his grandchildren and great grandchildren as “PaPa Tony”, he set an outstanding example of what it means to live life as a Good person.
Tony exemplified what it means to be a HUSBAND, a FATHER and a GRANDFATHER. He was always the first person to help family, friends, and anyone in need of assistance. He was a generous, kind, and unselfish man who always put others first.
Tony and his wife, Lillian were devoted members of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, Carbondale. He proudly served our country in WW II as a member of the U.S. Navy.
