WAPPINGERS FALLS - Anthony Frank "Tony" Sileno of Wappingers Falls, NY passed suddenly into the arms of God on February 23 at the age of 74. Tony, who grew up in Newburgh, was the son of the late John Guy & Vera Squillace Sileno. Tony will be greatly missed by his family and his many friends. We will miss his love and compassion and especially his humor. Tony is survived by his beloved wife of nearly 50 years Anne (O'Leary) Sileno and their four children: Maria DeLoughry (husband Tom), Christina Hopper (husband John), Terri Sileno, and Andy Sileno (wife Suzanne). He is greatly missed by his six grandchildren on whom he showered his love and patience: Ryan DeLoughry, Kevin DeLoughry, Allison Hopper, Elizabeth Hopper, Samuel Sileno, and Olivia Sileno. Tony is also survived by a brother, John, of Fort Meyers, FL, and many nieces and nephews. He was a graduate of Manhattan College with a BS in mathematics and attended St. John's University. An information systems professional, Tony worked for a number of companies in the Hudson Valley, retiring from the Mid-Hudson Medical Group several years ago. A devout Catholic, Tony served St. Martin de Porres for 43 years as a lector, cantor, and choir member and donated his time in his retirement to maintain the computer lab of the parish's school. Tony was also a 4th Degree and Past Grand Knight of Council #7551 of St. Martin de Porres and he also sang with the IBM Mixed Chorus. Tony was a life-long Dodgers fan, who did not hold a grudge after the team left Brooklyn. All who knew Tony, including the gang who gathered at the bagel shop after morning mass, will miss his warmth and his love of jokes and puns that often brightened someone's day.
