Anthony Joseph Mazza, or Tony Mazza as you probably know him, was born on July 26, 1946, to Joseph Mazza and Josephine Mazza (Spadaro), both who preceded him in death. He was born in RI, graduating from Cranston East in 1964. He had one sibling. His older sister, Rosalie Mazza, who preceded him in death earlier this year. Tony passed at his home unexpectedly, but with his loving wife by his side after 77 beautiful years of serving and loving people as far and as wide as he could on September 4, 2023. The world will shine a little less brightly with the loss of such an amazing man.

Tony was everyone’s friend. If he knew you, he considered you either a friend or family. He brought smiles and laughter everywhere he went. He always was willing to help.

Tony first became a father in 1969 when Marlene Velasquez (Mazza) was born. He married the love of his life, Linda Mazza (Yarusites) in 1976 and followed up with a second child, Kendra Kelling (Mazza). Two years later he had his only son, Damien Mazza.
