In the twilight of my life, many thoughts of my younger years pass through my mind. One such thought was one of my classmates in elementary school, Public School 77 in Ridgewood, Queens. One classmate was Anthony DiGiovanna. The only other Anthony in our class of June 1944. We were the only two in our class of Italian heritage. We both went to Brooklyn Technical High School, and in our lifetimes worked as draftsmen. In my autograph book upon graduation from PS77, Anthony DiGiovanna signed with "When you are old and looking like a hag, don't be left holding the bag' I found his name and obituary on the internet (Google) with many good comments on his life. May he rest in peace. Anthony Peralta

I've had the pleasure of meeting both your parents and have fond memories of your loving Father; I remember when he came to visit us in London. I was very young when I met him - 'Uncle Tony' gave me a book about Cars, in fact it was my first book and since then I have cherished it. With loving thoughts, my family and I would like to convey our deepest and sincere condolences. From Giuseppe (Joe) Di Giovanna and family: Daniela, Rachele & Gioele "Memories of the ones we Love, Never Die".

Dearest Tony, From the first time we spoke, I was struck by how loving and caring you were toward me. And each time we talked on the phone or saw each other, you were so good about remembering what was going on in my life and asking me about it. Thank you for accepting me into your family and making me feel like we had known each other forever. And thank you for all the hugs and "I love you's" you gave me. Most of all, I want to thank you and Jeanette for giving me my beautiful husband Michael. He is a gift to me everyday and I appreciate everything you did to raise him to be such a wonderful person. I am so glad I was able to get to know you and spend time with you, especially last week. I will miss talking to you and hearing your loving voice. I love you always, Susie
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Steve and DiGiovanna Family, So sorry to hear about your Dad. I have many great memories of your family. Since your house was right on the way to school for me, we often walked together in the morning and afternoon over the growing up years. The stories you would tell of the family have remained with me all these years. You are truly blessed to have had your parents. Cherish these memories. Sincerest condolences, Dave B Old Lyme, CT

Tony was a special man. Although we haven't seen each other in a while, he always kept in touch via email. I remember the old times we shared at the coffee club and I always had a lot of respect for his opinions & ideas. He was a great man and will be greatly missed.

My Dear Paul, Michael, Richard Stephen & Jean Marie, Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your wonderful Dad. Your mother and I were co-workers at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital before she was our East Lyme Tax Collector. I spent many wonderful times with your Dad and Mom. I have always kept them close in my heart, even after them moved away from East Lyme. Your parents were wonderful, caring, generous and kind couple. May God comfort you at this sad time. In special and fond memories, Verna

To the Digiovanna Family, I have many wonderful memories of your dad! I remember one Christmas in the kitchen with him making these wonderful meatballs and sauce. To this day I have never had any better! I remember him being a strong and firm dad, but always so proud of his kids. You all were blessed to have a wonderful and caring dad!
