Anthony Feliciano, childhood nickname “Ching”, known as “Tony” to many friends, at age 61 passed away suddenly on Saturday, July 11, 2020. Anthony is survived by his beloved wife of 25 years Lizsandra. He also leaves behind his children Desiree, Anthony, Marco and Granddaughter Nevaeh. He also leaves behind his sister Elaine and nieces Alicia and Ashley, nephew Michael Angelo and great nieces Leah, Jessie and Grace as well as his sister Betzsaida Feliciano Pagan and family.
Anthony was born in Manhattan “El Barrio” East Harlem. He recently retired after 36 years of service from the Mass Transit Authority 207th Overhaul Shop and was part of the Local 100 Transit Worker Union.
Anthony was larger than life, he was a man of faith and was loved by all who knew him. In his childhood he was an active member in the community being both a boy scout and an altar boy in the Catholic Church. He then gave life to his beautiful daughter Desiree and was an active and caring father.
Anthony then met his wife of 25 years Lizsandra, and had two beautiful sons Anthony and Marco who he raised with love. He then became a Grandfather to a beautiful girl Nevaeh who he loved dearly.
Anthony moved to Rockland County, New City, New York with his family in 2008. There he passed on his love of baseball and especially his love for the New York Mets to his two young boys, one of them going on to play Varsity level baseball at Clarkstown South, who unfortunately turned out to be a Yankee fan (love you Marco :D).
He was a board member of the New City Library. He was a kind, compassionate and gentle man who was loved dearly by his neighbors and community. He will be missed by his family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and community more than can be put in words.
