Upon returning to the NY area Anthony was employed by the State of New York as a Veterans Counselor. After 20 years in that position he retired and relocated to Sun City, AZ in 1987.

Anthony was an active member of the American Legion for more than half of his life, serving, at one point, as Post Commander at Post 8 in New Rochelle, NY.

After moving to Sun City his home post was Post 62, where, for many years, he served his fellow Veteran's by helping them obtain their Veterans Benefits. Anthony will be greatly missed by his family and his many friends, especially his girlfriend of many years, Adrian "Midge" Manno of Sun City and his former spouse, Aurora Foglio of Orlando, FL. In addition to the above, Anthony is survived by his loving daughter, Lois Ann Campbell and son-in-law Kenneth Campbell of Virginia Beach, VA.

A Mass of the Christian Burial was said by Fr John Foglio on August 3rd at St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Virginia Beach. Interment with full military honors was performed on August 6th at Albert G. Horton Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk, VA.

To honor Anthony's wishes he was laid to rest dressed in his American Legion uniform.
