Cecere, Anthony J. (Tony)  
Anthony (Tony) J. Cecere, 89, of South Windsor, husband of 63 years to Dawn (Bouchard) Cecere, passed away peacefully Feb. 23, 2015. He was born in Hartford on April 8, 1925, to the late James and Antoinette (Barone) Cecere. Tony was raised in East Hartford, where he attended local schools. He was a resident of South Windsor for over 62 years. Besides his wife, Dawn, he is survived by his children, Michael (Barbara) Cecere, of Manchester, Pat (Gail Shimaitis) Cecere, of Manchester, Joan (Ray) Zaugg, of South Windsor, and John (Judy) Cecere, of Palm City, Florida. He is survived by his most cherished grandchildren, Christopher (Ashley) Zaugg, of Glastonbury, Danielle Zaugg, of South Windsor, and Carly and Jeffrey Cecere, of Palm City. He also leaves his siblings, Frank (Joanne) Cecere, Katherine Bartle, Josephine Pieri; and many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, Tony was predeceased by his infant sister, Olivia; his brother, Nicholas; his brothers-in-law, Joseph Bartle and Richard Pieri; and his special cousins, Joe and Rose Montano. Always a driven man with a strong work ethic, Tony did not fully retire until well into his 80s. Prior to his retirement, he was employed by C & M Warehouse in East Hartford and was a member of Teamsters Local 671. Tony took great pride in the lawn care and snow removal of both his property and that of his neighbors until just recently. Equally as impressive as Tony's dedication to hard work was his athleticism. Tony played fast-pitch softball for the Dovelettes of East Hartford in the '50s and '60s and was once scouted for the Cincinnati Reds. He was inducted into the Connecticut ASA Fast Pitch Hall of Fame in 1988. A lifelong Yankees fan, Tony shared his love of playing sports and being active with both his children and his grandchildren. Tony was a member of the Manchester Silk City Barbershop Chorus for over 40 years, having attained the status of Barbershopper of the Year and Joe Barbershopper. Dawn and Tony made many good, caring friends through the chorus, with whom they traveled throughout the United States to participate in many barbershop competitions. Once Dawn got Tony on the road, they vacationed in Italy, Hawaii, and Canada, and took cruises through the Caribbean, Alaska, and northern Europe. Of all places traveled far and wide, Tony's favorite spot was sitting on the deck of the Marginal Way House in Ogunquit, Maine, overlooking the ocean each September. Relatives and friends may gather at Samsel & Carmon Funeral Home, 419 Buckland Road, South Windsor, Friday, Feb. 27, from 5 to 8 p.m. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 673 Ellington Road in South Windsor on Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015, at 11 a.m. Burial will be private at the request of his family. Tony's family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the Hospital for Special Care, Masonicare of East Hartford, and Companions and Home Helpers of East Hartford for their care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Tony's favorite charities, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, Tribute Program, P.O. Box 1000, Dept. 142, Memphis, TN 38148-0142, and/or Father Flanagan's Boys Town, 200 Flanagan Blvd., P.O. Box, 8000 Boys Town, NE 68010.
