Anthony Maritato, 81, died Wednesday, November 10, 2010, peacefully at home after a long illness.
Born in Brooklyn to Italian immigrants, he grew up in a 4-room apartment with his parents and six siblings. To escape poverty, he joined the Merchant Marine, but was discharged during his training when it was discovered that he was 14 years old.
Later, on his seventeenth birthday, he joined the Navy, where he served on warships in the Pacific fleet. Self taught in electronics, he spent most of his working life in that field, rising to various management positions. After a series of layoffs in the 1970’s, he was eventually hired by the Domino Sugar Corporation on the Brooklyn side of the East River, where he quickly rose to refinery manager. He retired from there to Pike County, PA.
As a manager, he won the respect and affection of a wide variety of employees; from poor women on the assembly line, to rough men on the docks. A physically imposing man, he disliked foul language or displays of bravado. As a husband, he would always express admiration for his wife, Marie, who worked full time while raising 4 sons. As a result, their sons wanted for nothing. Marie was also influential in his spiritual life. Like many men of his ancestry, Tony had a devotion to St. Anthony and Padre Pio. Although proud of his Italian heritage, he never lost faith in America or her people, despite the social upheavals of his time. His greatest trial came when, at age 75, he labored several months at his dying wife’s bedside in their home. When she died, he was left exhausted and inconsolable. From then on, he lived for his grandchildren. His favorite t-shirt was “Property of my Grandkids”.
The son of late Gennaro and Antonetta (Maio) Maritato, he was born February 15, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY. He is survived by his 4 sons: Dr. Gerard Maritato and his wife Cynthia, Honesdale, PA; John Maritato and his wife Lena, Calabasas, CA; Anthony Maritato and his wife Anna Maria, Albany, NY; Paul Maritato, Brooklyn, NY; 9 grandchildren and 1 great-grandson. He is also survived by his brother Pasquale Maritato of Albany, NY.
