Anthony Aquilino passed away on Tuesday, September 10, 2019. He was 93. Anthony was born on May 5, 1926, in Bedford, New York, the eighth of thirteen children. He attended Bedford schools and upon completion, enlisted in the US Army at age 18, serving from 1944 to 1946 in World War II. He worked for many years for the US Postal Service and the Bank of New York. He was also a volunteer fire fighter in Bedford. He married Catherine Trapasso on May 31, 1953.
