Maternal grandfather of my children.

Tony was the fourth child (of five) and eldest son of Francesco and Rosaria (Colombo) LaCorte.

His father died in Dec. 1945 when Tony was 17 years old.

Tony graduated from high school in June 1946.

At age 23 he married Margaret Sciacca (b. March 1930) on Sept. 23, 1951 in Canarsie, NY. They had four children: Frank (b. 1953), Suzette (b. 1956), Joseph (b. 1958) and Marguerite (b. 1963).

Occupation: Construction work (disabled)

He, his wife and young children moved to Brentwood, Long Island, NY in 1960 and their family was raised there. I met my future in-laws for the first time at Easter 1986 when my fiance Suzette, her daughter Nicole, and I flew to Brentwood. It was my first airplane flight.

In December 1986, Mr. and Mrs. LaCorte moved to a condo in Delray Beach, FL. Tony died from complications of a stroke in Boca Raton Hospital at age 65.

Survived by his wife, his four children: Frank (Diane), Suzette (Ronald) Gadzalinski, Joseph (Barbara) LaCorte, and Marguerite LaCorte and five grandchildren; Nicole Gadzalinski, Kevin Gadzalinski, Brian Gadzalinski, Joseph LaCorte and Sarah Gadzalinski. (His 6th grandchild, Emily LaCorte, was born after his death--in May 1994). Survived also by his sisters Toni Danetra and Dotty Barca and younger brother Joseph. His eldest sister Rose Ambrosino preceded him in death. He also had several nieces and nephews.
