    Jim & Pat

    Will always remember those days at the YMCA playing racquet ball. Tony was quick, precise and had no mercy. That’s what is all about.

  2. Katrina DeProfio-Carroll says:

    Uncle Tony, you will be missed. I am forever grateful for your love and support. Say hi to my Grammy (Yvetta) and my Grampy (Emilio) for me. I can just imagine you’re sitting around with your family, talking (yelling) in Italian and laughing!! Love you to pieces! Jim and Pam, my sincerest condolences from NC.

  3. John DiProfio says:

    Dear Jim and Pam, our sincerest condolences on the death “Uncle Tony”. He is missed, and our sole consolation is, he is with his beloved Connie. We will cherish the memory of our trips to Italy and Sicily and the reunions with the several cousins we visited. His “vacations with his southern relatives”—as he called us— were always fun-filled and will be remembered fondly. John and Dorothy DiProfio

    Dear Jim and Pam, sorry to hear about your Dad passing. We considered him a dear friend and spent many good times with Tony. He enjoyed many good Italian meals with his meatballs being his specialty. I will miss knowing that I can no longer visit with him but know he is with Connie.
