Of Dracut, formerly of Waltham, passed away unexpectedly early Friday morning March 20th, 2020 in Newton – Wellesley Hospital at the age of 64.

Born on May 27th, 1955 in Waltham; son of the late Angelo and Marie (Marchetti) Taranto, Anthony was raised in Waltham and had most recently resided in Dracut.

Anthony was a graduate of Waltham High School with the class of 1973. He proudly worked at Digital for 20 years, until their closing. He immediately transferred to a position at Fidelity Investments where he also worked for 20 years, until his retirement. Anthony had a relentless work ethic and was dedicated to providing for his family. During his career at these companies, he owned and operated A.J. Taranto Services, a landscaping business. He would work daily at this second full-time job before going to the office. After
retirement, Anthony followed his true passion in life with his wife Nancy, opening a food cart at the Londonderry Flea Market called “Tony’s”. His greatest enjoyment in life came from cooking! He insisted that every recipe be followed to the exact and precise measurement, resulting in many delicious meals that were enjoyed with his family and friends.

Anthony is survived by his beloved wife Nancy (Santos) Taranto; his devoted and loving children Nicole Taranto of Waltham; Joseph Taranto and his grandson JJ of Hudson, and Kevin Santos of Dracut. In addition he is survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and extended family.

A Funeral Service will be held in Mary Catherine Chapel of Brasco & Sons on Wednesday March 25th at 11:00 a.m. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery in Waltham. Visiting Hours in the Brasco & Sons Memorial Funeral Home, 773 Moody Street, Waltham on Tuesday March 24th from 3 – 7 p.m.

Expressions of sympathy may be made in his memory to the Agassiz Village Summer Camp, 238 Bedford St., Suite 8, Lexington, Ma. 02420

Worked with Tony for 15 years at Fidelity. We had more than our fair share of laughs. So sad to lose such a great guy so early in life. May you rest in peace. My prayers and thoughts to your family.

Tony; what can I say about this man: he came into my life as a young man, dating my sister Robbie. They dated and then married, gave me a wonderful niece and nephew. Tony was a huge part of our lives for many years, he was funny, was the best cook ever, entertained the family at every gathering. He will always be my brother-in-law, and missed so much.
He was taken much to soon, we don't understand, but we will always have him in our hearts. Be in peace Tony.
