Anthony Angelo Moreno
Anthony Angelo Moreno left us peacefully on September 13, 2020, at the age of 83. His loyal and devoted wife, Dolly, was by his side, loving and caring for him as she has for the past 53 years. He was surrounded in his passing by the family that has looked to him as their patriarch for so many years. Anthony was the cherished father of Freddy (Tina) Moreno, Dina (Chris) Aivaliotis, and Shelly (Javier) Alandete. He was the proud and adored Nonno of Alessia, Anthony, and Joey Moreno and Mia, Marco, and Massimo Alandete. He joins his parents, the late Ferdinando and Rose Morena, his sister, Rose Schwartzer, and his beloved nephew, Ken Schwartzer, in eternal life. Known throughout his life as “Tony”, “TM”, or” Mo”, he was born and raised in Mt. Washington. He and Dolly were married at St. Raphael Church in1967 in Morningside, where they stayed for 24 years and raised their family. Those years with his young family were filled with fun and memorable times, including annual summer vacations to two of his favorite places, New Jersey and Hilton Head. During these years he enjoyed hunting and golfing, past times he taught his son to love, and he was the All-American dad, always playing sports with his kids, cards with his friends, and enjoying time with not only his children but his extended family as well. In 1991, he and Dolly realized their life-long goal and built their dream house in Scott Township. Despite his move from Mt. Washington after marriage, Tony remained a “Mt. Washington guy” his whole life. His greatest friendships until the very end remained his friends from the neighborhood. Known as “Our Gang”, they shared more laughs, stories, and good times than can be recounted. Tony was the life of any party, quick to make everyone laugh, always ready to enjoy a dance, and the kind of person anyone was happy to have a drink and a laugh with. He was able to bring a smile to anyone he came in contact with. He spent the bulk of his working years driving a truck for The Pittsburgh Press. In retirement, he enjoyed playing cards, gardening, travelling with his wife, and, most of all, being with his family. He will be missed by many but not soon forgotten. He was an ordinary man to most but to us he was a hero that will remain with us forever. Family and friends will be received on Wednesday 2-8 pm at the Brusco-Falvo Funeral Home Inc. 214 Virginia Avenue, Mt Washington (412-381-2323). Due to COVID-19 guidelines, social distancing and masks are required. Funeral Mass will be on Thursday at 10 am in St. Mary of the Mount Church, immediately followed by Military Honors by the VFW Post 5111.
