Condolence: COMMENTS FOR TONY MARCO MEMORIAL SERVICE JAN 5, 2018



Tony was born in January 1935 and lived his early life in the East End of Clearfield within a large Italian community. His father Gennarino,was an electrician at the Harbison Walker Company and a musician. Tony’s mother, Lina Biviano Marco was a loving and caring person who would do anything to create a good life for her son. Also in East End were the Biviano grandparents who doted on their grandson Tony, and aunts, uncles and cousins who played an important part in Tony’s childhood.

In our corner of East End there was a clear sight between the Marco house, Aunt Vickie's house, and the Maioranos. There were 20 kids between all these families of which there were beautiful and loving girls; Joanna, Rose, Sara, Rosejane, Rosie, Tessie, Jane, Carrie M, Tina, that looked out for us boys. Having all these wonderful women in our lives gave us enormous respect and protective instincts towards women.
There were many interactions and good times between our households.
We all considered Tony as part of our family, as we had the same aunts and uncles, and he would frequently join us for dinner, wine and cookies at holidays. Tony could be very animated with his face and very funny, and of course very talented with his horn or with telling stories that were too funny to finish as we were laughing so hard.
Tony was always respectful and loving to our Mother and made a point of visiting us when returning from his various journeys. Tony and Vince were good buddies of the same age, and Tony was an usher with Emery at Vince and Nanette's wedding. At a later time Tony and Emery traveled to dances at the "Big Trout Inn" and the "St Agnes Hall" As adults, there were also the trips with Vince and family to Ocean City when Tony would play his trumpet at the beach to the delight of Monique, Michele, Vince, and Jim.

Tony was blessed to be born with “good looks” and an outgoing engaging personality that included extreme confidence and an ability to make many friends. The heads of the young girls in Clearfield would swing around when Tony passed by. When he bought that 1956 Chevy convertible he was quite the sight driving it through downtown Clearfield. Tony also noticed that girls liked him,and when he played baseball, the opposing team could divert his concentration by taunting him that his girlfriend was watching. Tony was a natural athlete who was able to excel in baseball, basketball or any athletic pursuit he desired. He could throw a blazing fastball, and he could sink a basketball from half court.
Under his father’s tutelege and the Sons of Italy music program, Tony learned to play the trumpet at an early age, and played with a high degree of skill in several bands. After high school , he served four years in the US Navy, attended Penn State University and also joined a traveling band playing Jazz within the US.

In the 1970s Tony moved to Utica NY to work with General Electric and then transferred to the Baltimore MD area to work with the Black and Decker Company. He innovated within the company in improving technical and managerial practices and later became the director of one of the Black and Decker Remanufacturing Divisions.
Tony is survived by his dear wife Ellie, who works at Carefirst Blue Cross Blue Shield as a Financial Specialist, and by his daughter Eve, her husband Tom, and grandchildren Marena, Marc and Andrew.

Love,
The Sturniolos; Emery, Vince, Nanette, Rose, Sarah and Frank Here is an online version of the 1952 Clearfield Bison:
