Anthony C. Sirignano 1940 - 2010

Anthony C. Sirignano

Saturday, June 18, 2011
I studied with Tony at Regis, Fordham, and for three years at Princeton. We even roomed together there 1962-1963 - downmarket New Yorkers among the elite. He was always the most lively, the most brilliant, and most fun of his contemporaries - though as roommates we argued about his taste in opera and my general messiness.
It was so sad to hear of his passing - RIP.

I remember Mr. Sirignano as someone who inspired others to be the best they could and who was filled with life. Despite my adolescent awkwardness, I always walked away from a conversation with him feeling quite special and inspired about the future. He made the world seem filled with possibilities. I owe him a lot for that, as I am sure many do. Leah, I am so sorry for your loss but am so happy that you had the chance to experience life with and be loved by such a wonderful man. I hope you are finding comfort in many happy memories.

I was blessed to have Mir Sig as a professor. He was the inspiration behind my pursuit as a philosophy major in college. I would send him papers I wrote for his approval, he meant so much to me. I quoted him often and was proud to have made this photo album. He lives on within me, for sure.

Mr. Sirignano was an amazing person, teacher, and friend. He taught to think critically and challenged us to question anything and everything. When I think back to my high school years at St. John's, Mr. Sirignano is central to my memories. To this day, when I hear references to Plato or Socrates, I remember his warm smile and infectious laugh. Mr. Sirignano will be sorely missed, but his spirit, kindness, and determination will live on through the lives of the hundreds of students whose lives he touched.
