Born on April 12, 1959 in Hanover, PA, Anthony was a life long resident of Lower Bucks County. A Pennsbury Falcon football player, Tony graduated from Pennsbury High School in 1978. He was a member of St. John the Evangelist Parish.
Tony was employed by U.S. Steel Corporation prior to enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps where he proudly served his country including a tour of duty in the Panama Canal Zone. He later was employed as a security supervisor at Rider University followed by 18 years of employment with SEPTA. He was also an entrepreneur who previously owned a silk screening and embroidery business.
Tony enjoyed being in the mountains, fishing, riding his motorcycle and walking his devoted dog, Boomer. In earlier years, he was a volunteer firefighter with Fairless Hills Fire Department, coached Pop Warner football and Levittown Pacific Little League. The simple things in life were the most important to Tony – a good cup of coffee, a quiet lake, time with family and friends and making people laugh.
Son of the late Tony and Dorcas (Brown) DiSalvo, Tony is survived by his beloved wife of 35 years, Kathryn A. (Drake); his son Daniel A. (Amy) and grandchildren Danny Jr. and Alyssa.
Tony, also known as “Baby Tony”, is survived by his sisters, Judith Rymarczick and Tina Termyna (Mark). He was preceded in death by four siblings, Linda Bartle (Mike), Tom Kern (Kathleen), John Branstetter and Mary Bosserman (Raymond). He will be missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and his buddy, Uncle Bob. Savannah Dowling and Gillian Branstetter had a special place in his heart.
