Anthony E. Nuccitelli

ANTHONY E. NUCCITELLI, aged 87 years, beloved husband for 66 years to Jeanne (nee Britting), dear father of Richard Anthony (recently passed on Nov. 5, 2023) (Jill) and Renee Trebec (Randy Northrup), loving grandfather of Nichole Lazor (Will) and Jordin Kirk (Jaime), devoted great-grandfather of Keegan John Anthony and Grayson Joseph Lazor, and Landyn James and Westyn Anthony Kirk, dearest son of the late Stanislao and Anna, cherished brother of Vicki Olarte (Guillermo) and the late Angelo and Lenore, treasured son-in-law to the late Ann and Nicholas Britting, loved brother-in-law to Jo Asadorian (George) fond uncle and great-uncle to many.

Anthony (Tony to loved ones) E. Nuccitelli was born in Cleveland, OH. Growing up on Harvard and Broadway he enjoyed athletics, especially baseball. His first job was a caddy at Highland golf course, but you could always find him in the streets playing ball. After high school he married the love of his life Jeanne. Tony dabbled in different careers until joining Glastic Corporation. It is here he spent the majority of his career starting out as a tow motor driver. Heading back to school he took classes at John Carroll University and Ohio State University to further both his education and career. He retired from Glastic as the plant operations manager. He moved quite a few times, but the majority of his adulthood was spent on Balmoral Dr. in Richmond Heights, OH. A love for all things sports and competition, he never let anyone win. He could run backwards faster than most people could run forward. As a young baseball player, he had the opportunity to play in the minor leagues, but unfortunate circumstances made it not possible. That didn’t stop Tony from playing and he continued to play fast pitch baseball well into adulthood. An avid golfer he spent more time on the green than anywhere else. He met some of his closest friends when joining Quail Hollow in 1986. This love for golf enabled him to play in many tournaments and earn many awards and trophies. His love for golf is the reason why they packed up their belongings in Richmond Heights and moved to Concord Township only to have the 9th hole of Weiskopf as their backyard during retirement.

Tony loved getting together with family and extended family during the holidays and chatting up anyone who wanted to talk about all thing’s sports, big band, and Frank Sinatra. He was truly the life of the party wherever he went. He may have never arrived to a party on time because he was either holding a baseball or golf club, he was never the first to leave. Telling jokes (usually at others expenses) you were sure to have a good time hanging out with Tony. If you were lucky enough to be called “buddy” don’t worry he knew your face, just forgot your name but it was his signature saying to make sure everyone felt cared for when he was around.

He started traveling after marriage and both him and Jeanne made sure to travel with friends and family. From beaches to major cities, across borders, cruises, and even a trip to Japan made for lifelong memories. He loved to read, especially about the Civil War. Tony was a classy, witty, lovable, sarcastic, and competitive individual. His charismatic personality drew people in with warmth and positive energy, always leaving a lasting impression. He was always the best dressed in the room and always right even when he was wrong. He somehow was able to afford double hotels on the boardwalk and as the self-nominated “banker” he never lost a game. Just because he sometimes cheated to win doesn’t mean he did love big. Tony was a family man first and foremost and will be deeply missed.
