Our good friend and colleague, Tony Funicello, passed away October 8th in Orlando, FL after a long struggle with cancer. He was 76.
Tony was born in Utica, NY. After graduating from college, he joined the Peace Corps in 1965 and was assigned to Ethiopia for two years. Following that, he worked for USAID in Senegal, Sudan, Ethiopia, Thailand, Vietnam, Panama and Bolivia, where he made many friends who will miss his ready smile and good humor.
He retired in 1989. Tony’s second career was with Track Masters where he was Chief Racecar Instructor for racing aficionados.
Tony is survived by his wife, Lisa.
May he rest in peace.
