VIENNA, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Anthony ‘Tony’ Schiavone, 68, passed away Saturday, March 21, at home surrounded by family, after a short illness.
Born in Youngstown, Ohio on January 2, 1952 to the late Salvatore and Minnie (Ambrosio) Schiavone, Tony was a lifetime resident of Vienna.
He was a 1970 graduate of Ursuline High School and attended Youngstown State University.
He worked in the family grocery business for over 25 years before owning a travel agency in the late 90s. Later, he worked in the oil and gas industry as a title abstractor before retiring.
Along with spending time with family, his passions in life included golf, traveling and being a die-hard Browns and Indians fan as well as rooting for the YSU Penguins and the Buckeyes.
Tony is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Carol (Whiteside) Schiavone; his children, Chris (Lori) Schiavone of Cortland, Jackie (Eric) Anthony of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio and Sal (Sarah) Schiavone of Tallmadge, Ohio and grandchildren Cooper, Matthew, Grace, Mary, Sydney and Sage.
