ANTHONY “COOK” PATTI age 81, beloved husband for 43 years of Celeste (nee DeCorpo); loving father of Kimberly Ann (deceased), Anthony J. (wife Karen), James T., Matthew, Benedict, and Sara; devoted grandfather of Gregory Weller, Anthony J. Jr, Michael, Thomas, and Edie; cherished son of the late Anthony and Minnie (nee DeJohn); dearest brother of Charles (wife Penny), and the late Micheline “Mickey” Donovan (husband Michael) and Benedict; dear brother-in-law, uncle, great-uncle, cousin, and friend of many.
Tony was born on November 13, 1941, in Cleveland, Ohio and has been a resident of Mayfield Heights for over 75 years. Upon graduation from Mayfield High School in 1960, Tony continued his education at The Ohio State University and proudly served his country in the United States Army. He worked many years in construction and as a superintendent. He enjoyed his time as a member of the Mayfield Alumni Association and served as a past president. Tony was always learning something new, whether he was reading and learning everything there was to know about history or learning about family genealogy. He traveled to Italy and expanded his knowledge of his Sicilian heritage. Tony liked listening to Elton John, Simon and Garfunkel, the Eagles, the Bee Gees, and country music, as well as watching MSNBC, which was no surprise with his interest in politics. On September 11, 2023, the world lost a generous and devoted man. His family and friends will forever cherish his ability to help others all while making them smile and laugh with his unique sense of humor.
