I have sooooo many great memories of my Uncle Anthony! I would need a whole book to share all of them truly. As my Aunt Kathy knows he was like another Father figure to me. I was around him and his family so much growing up. Then when I moved back to Arizona from Long Island by myself to go to College at Arizona State University,I stayed with him and Aunt Kathy,and my beautiful cousins,Maureen,Dean,Donna,and Melissa for a little while until I got on my feet. He always stayed on me like his own son,as my own Dad was usually working when I was younger until the business was sold when I was about 12. And in Arizona when I was by myself he would always give me his wisdom and advice. I always appreciated my Uncle Anthony,and I will miss him dearly! My Uncle was also like a best friend to me,and I always will treasure him. He was one good looking son of a gun too! As for my Aunt Kathy,Maureen,Dean,Donna,and Melissa I am so sorry for your loss. I love and miss you guys so so much. Uncle Anthony you will truly be missed by us all! As i said ,I would need a whole book at least to share all my memories of him! Rest in peace and God Bless You Uncle Anthony!

Anthony and my Father John Cuccurullo are cousins. They were very close back in Anthony's Brooklyn Degraw street and 5th ave days and the Huntington days. May they reunite in Heaven. John Cuccurullo jr.

I remember my big cousin Anthony always with a smile and a cheerful voice that made my feel good being around him. Sometimes I would go to Long Island and visit my aunt Mary and uncle Danny and my cousins, my godmother Louise, Joseph, John and Anthony. All good people and made you feel like you belong. But Anthony always made my laugh with his kidding. I will always remember my cousin Anthony with that wonderful smile.
