Anthony Michael Lizza, 58, of Old Forge died Wednesday morning, July 24, 2013, as a result of injuries sustained in an auto accident on Interstate 81 in Avoca.
Born in Taylor, son of Anthony C. and Anna Arpaia Lizza of Old Forge, he was a 1972 graduate of Old Forge High School.
Anthony was a master plumber who operated his own business for many years. In years past, he also resided in Yatesville, Pittston, Dallas and Duryea.
Tony was truly a kind-hearted individual who would never turn a friend away. His calm nature and almost child-like exuberance made him so easy to get along with and a joy to be around. He loved his family, including his pets, with his whole being. Tony enjoyed music and also took flight lessons in the past.

Lizza, Washington, D.C.; and Steffen Lizza, Forty Fort; a brother, Mark Lizza and companion, Patricia Best, Old Forge; two grandchildren, Emma and Olivia; a niece, Lauren Lizza; two nephews, Mark Angelo and Nicholas Lizza; and his companion, Debbie Olivieri, Old Forge.
