PASSERO, Enrico Antonio "Tony" - Trusting in a merciful God and the promise of eternal life first promised at baptism, our family, with heavy hearts, announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, loving Papa, brother and uncle Enrico Antonio “Tony” and known to so many as “Uncle Tone” Passero. Precious husband of 41+ years to Carmelina, (known by her husband as the “Lovely Carmeline”). Adoring Papa to Fr. Rico, Anthony, and Daniel. Precious son of the late Giovanni & Ermelinda Passero. Loving son-in-law of Cristina (and the late Antonio) Arcaro. Dear brother of Nicolina (the late Pasquale) Carrelli, the late Vincenzo “Vince” (Tina) Passero, Gennaro “Gerry” (Ofelia) Passero, Vito (the late Vittoria “Vickie”) Passero, the late Giuseppe “Joe” (Lilia) Passero, Maria (Adelio) Mastrangelo, Gaetana “Tina” (Bruno) Sardella, Ada “Ida” (Vince) Mancini and brother in law to Michele “Mike” (the late Angiolina “Angie”), and Liberina “Betty” (Nick) Colaneri. Lovingly remembered by many godchildren, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and extended family and friends. Tony had a love for family, faith, music - and we know he was the life of the party! He loved everyone in a unique and intimate way.
