FRANCELLA, Anthony “Tony”

FRANCELLA, Anthony "Tony"

Peacefully at ARCH, with his children by his side, Friday, January 19, 2024, at the age of 84.

Beloved husband of the late Dolores. Cherished father of Frank (Melissa) and Tammy (Tom). Loving Papa of Anthony, Dominic, Connor, Tyson and Ryan.

The oldest son of the late Assunta and late Francesco Francella.  Brother of Mario (Sharon), Attilio (late Marie), Julio (Federica) and Lena Hebert (late Dave). Son-in-law of the late Thomas and late Marion Caron. Loving brother-in-law of late Sonny (Betty), late Shirley, late Ernie (late Marilyn), Patricia Verdoni (late Jimmy), late Jimmy (Reggie), late Herb (Mary Ann), late Rick (late Carol) and the late Terry (Debbie).  Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. Special friend to Claudette Frigault. 

Tony will always be remembered for his love of the outdoors, whether hunting, fishing, gardening or looking for all the outdoors could provide. He was always his happiest when he was in nature. He had the biggest heart and always wanted to be able to help in any way he could, whether he was catching fish and smelts to give to family and friends or picking up people to take them anywhere they had to go. Nothing made him happier than feeding people. No one would go hungry with Tony around.  

We would like to extend a very special thank you to Dr. Bruni, Sharon and the amazing staff and volunteers at ARCH. Although his time at ARCH was not long, you made everything so much better for all of us.

At Tony’s request, there will be no funeral service. A small family service will take place at a later date, yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations to ARCH would be greatly appreciated. Fond memories and condolences may be left at Arrangements entrusted to O’Sullivan Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 215 St. James St, 705-759-8456.
