Obituary

Anthony DePietro Jr, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at Cornerstone Hospice in the Villages from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 77years old.
He was a resident of the Lake Deaton area in the Villages, Florida. He was born in Trenton, New Jersey to the late Anthony DePietro Sr and Phyllis Arnone. He moved to Logan, Utah prior to residing in The Villages, Florida.
Tony worked as a clerk at Hill Refrigeration, Trenton, NJ, followed by a career as a Corrections Officer at the Trenton State Prison in Trenton, NJ. After retirement, he worked at Resorts Casino in Security, Atlantic City. New Jersey and then at Lawrenceville Rehab Center in Pennington, New Jersey in security.
He attended Ewing High School in Trenton and completed 10th grade and then earned his GED.
He served as a volunteer fireman at the Prospect Fire Department in Ewing, NJ.
Tony was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He was a wonderful soul. He was so kind to everyone he met. He was such a kind, gently, generous, loving man and had the biggest smile that was so engaging to everyone. He loved sitting on the front porch and waving to everyone who came by, watching the clouds, listening to the birds and just enjoying life.
A few of his favorite things were fishing, spending time with his family, going to the Boardwalk at Seaside Heights, NJ, and playing the wheels, gambling at the casino caring for our many animals, and he loved his 66 Pontiac GTO. He called it the Green Hornet and won a race at Englishtown, NJ. As a youth, he loved cruising in downtown Trenton with his friends. He also loved watching the NASCAR races and when we moved to The Villages, he was so excited to attend the Daytona 500. He was a collector of hats from all of our travels. He was a great story teller. In the Villages, he loved watching water volleyball and became the official ball boy as he watched the games. The players loved seeing him and engaging in his many stories.
He is survived by his wife, Patricia Hornyak, two daughters, Sandra Gayda (Ron) and Michele Larivee (Ned), Two Grandson’s, Thomas and Nicholas Gayda. Ron DePietro brother (Sarah), 3 children, Patty Dolce, Sister (Vince) 3 children, and Steve Hornyak, brother-in-law (Susan) 3 children.

    Tony was a very cool guy. Every time I saw him at the Rohan for water volleyball, he had a happy smile on his face and just seemed to be enjoying life. He was very persistent on retrieving the balls that inadvertently go hit out of the pool. He had stories about gunners on the new bridge they were building and has a special place in my heart and mind.

    Tony was a very sweet and kind man. He always had an infectious smile and a story for all the water volleyball players at Rohan. Tony loved watching his beloved wife, Pat and her groups play. He is missed by all. Peace and blessings to Pat and his family.
