Obituary

Anthony "Tony" J. Schifone

Of Dedham, passed away peacefully Tuesday afternoon March 9th, 2021 in the comfort of his home with his loving family by his side at the age of 87.

Born on August 19, 1933 in Boston; beloved son of the late Carmelo and Antonette (DiChairia) Schifone. Tony was raised in West Roxbury and had resided in Roslindale for many years before moving to Dedham in 1985.

Tony worked as young man with his father in the family tile business and later became a Heavy Equipment Operator for over 35 years.

He was a longtime member of the Laborer's International Union, Local 22 and the Teamsters Union Local #25.

Tony served proudly and honorably with the United States Army during the Korean War.

His family and his friends were always first and foremost; he cherished the time spent with everyone; especially his grandchildren.

When Tony wasn't working you would find him fishing anywhere and everywhere. He always had a fishing rod in his car ready to cast a line when he could. He loved being on the beach and near the ocean. He was a handyman and in many ways a "Mr Fix It" around the house on many home improvement projects.

Tony is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years Nina M. (Zizzo) Schifone; his devoted & loving daughter Elizabeth "Liz" A. Niziak and her husband Bradley of Walpole; and his cherished grandchildren Bradley and Kendra. In addition his is survived by his sister and was predeceased by several siblings.

Tony was predeceased by his beloved daughter Maria Schifone. 

Out of genuine concern for those we love and care deeply about during this difficult time throughout the world and in our community; family will gather to celebrate Anthony's life and remember the loved he shared with those he touched in a private Funeral Service at the Mary Catherine Chapel of Brasco & Sons Memorial Chapels in Waltham followed by his burial with United States Army Military Honors at Saint Joseph's Cemetery in West Roxbury.

Donations in Tony's name can be made to the Conquer Cancer Coalition of Massachusetts, ConquerCancer.org http://www.conquercancer.org, Conquer Cancer Coalition of Massachusetts, PO Box 973, Framingham, Ma 01701
