Obituary of Anthony J. DeSanctis

Anthony passed away on Sunday, January 8th, 2023, at the age of 102.

He is predeceased by his loving wife of 64 years, Vivian, his parents, Francesca & Massimo, his siblings, Katherine, Ada, Lou, and Albert, his beautiful daughter, Christine, as well as countless special family members and friends, all of whom will welcome him in heaven. Anthony is survived by his son, John (Carol), his granddaughter, Jessica (Shane), his grandson, Ian, his great-grandson, Leo, and many other close family members and friends.

Anthony was a loving, charismatic, hard-working, generous, and social person. As a child, he supported his family during the Great Depression. As a young adult, he fought in the Battle of the Bulge and D-Day in World War II. Throughout his midlife, he sold over 10,000 vacuum cleaners as “the Electrolux man” while raising a family. Anthony spent his later years loving his family and spending time with friends at the coffee shop and church (as an usher of over 50 years). Anthony was adored by the entire community and treasured by his family. He will be dearly missed and remembered as a legend.

Calling hours will be held on Thursday, January 12th from 3:30-7:30pm at Falvo’s Funeral Home, 1295 Fairport Nine Mile Point Rd. On Friday, January 13th, please meet the family at 10am at St. Ambrose church (Peace of Christ parish; 25 Empire Blvd) for Anthony’s funeral service. Interment immediately following at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
