On Tuesday, August 31, 2021, Antonio "Tony" Genise, father, son, and brother, passed away at the age of 56.
Tony was born on March 20, 1965 to Serafino and Franca, and spent his life working in the funeral industry. Growing up, Tony was involved in the Boy Scouts and that involvement continued throughout his life with Troop 14 in Little Falls and Troop 83 in Somerville when his son became involved in scouting as well. He was a volunteer for the Little Falls Rescue Squad.
Tony enjoyed spending his time being outdoors. He loved camping across the United States, spending summers on LBI, kayaking and canoeing down rivers, and skiing down the closest mountains he could find in the winter. He shared those moments with his friends and family, and instilled that same love for adventure in his children.
Tony was predeceased by his father, Serafino and is survived by his mother Franca, his two children, Serafina and Luke, his brother Eugenio, sister-in-law Linda and his niece and nephew, Chloe and Matthew Genise.
A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, September 4, 2021 at 9:30 AM at Our Lady of the Holy Angels Roman Catholic Church, 473 Main Street, Little Falls. Please meet directly at church. Entombment to follow at Laurel Grove Memorial Park, Totowa.
