Anthony GAROFALO

GAROFALO - Anthony, loving husband of Rosemarie, devoted father to Richard Garofalo, Robert Garofalo, Anne Marie Allen and Joseph Garofalo, grandpa and great-grandpa, passed on the evening of March 16th. A long time Port Washington resident, his strong sense of family, combined with his many contributions to the community he dedicated his life to, is a testament to his unparalleled kindness and generosity. A long time business owner of Anthony's World of Floors, he worked tirelessly to build a strong business community, while recognizing the importance of "giving back" through both over 30 years of volunteering for Cancer Care and their annual Port Washington fundraising showcase "The Red Stocking Revue" as well as serving as a past Grand Knight and Fourth Degree Member of the Port Washington chapter of Knights of Columbus. He was also a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Leaving behind a strong knit family, an friends too numerous to name, his loss will be felt by many. A life well spent leaves an indelible mark. Viewing will be at Austin F. Knowles Inc. Funeral Home (128 Main Street, Port Washington, NY) on Tuesday, March 18 from 2-4 and 6-9pm, and Wednesday March 19 from 2-4 and 7-9pm.
