A patient, kind, gentle and calm husband, dad, and papa, Anthony J. "Tony" Giambrone, passed away suddenly on Sunday, March 29, 2020 at his home. Tony was 83. He was born on June 13, 1936 in Utica, New York to his parents, Vincent and Domenica (Sardina) Giambrone, one of two boys.

He served his country with honor in the U.S. Army, 101st Airborne Division Band, where he played the trumpet. He was a talented musician and continued to enjoy playing the trumpet and the guitar throughout his life. Tony started his career in the mailroom and continued to advance to retire as the top civilian at W.P.A.F.B.

Besides his family, Tony's passion was photography. He enjoyed doing weddings and other celebrations, as well as developing the moments himself that he caught on camera. Because of his love for photography and his church, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, he was honored to be on a committee to improve and re-create photos of the history of St. Francis. Being from New York, Tony was an avid Yankees fan, who as a youngster would take the train and a lunch to the stadium to watch his beloved team. Since attending Oklahoma University and then living in Ohio for the last 50 years, he also was a fan of the Sooners as well as the Buckeyes, Reds and Bengals. Tony was also a very fervent reader, reading all kinds of books of various authors. And of course, he loved all things Italian...Italian food, opera's, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, and Andrea Bocelli.

Tony was preceded in death by his parents, son Anthony J. Giambrone, Jr., brother Joe Giambrone, and sister-in-law Sandra Noti. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Antoinette "Annette" (Talerico) Giambrone, whom he met at a wedding where he was best man and she was a bridesmaid. Tony is also survived by his daughter Alisa Pauley (Scott); two granddaughters Erica Hopkins and Nicole Giambrone, all of Bellbrook; one brother Jack Giambrone (Devina) of Utica, New York; brother-in-law James Talerico of Lancaster, Pennsylvania; and Annette's brother-in-law Sonny Noti of Utica, New York.

Because of COVID-19 and the social distancing that is mandated, we would implore you to send a condolence, plant a tree and share a story or picture about Tony here on his Online Book of Memories to help comfort the family.

There will be a Private Mass of Christian Burial at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church with Father Brian Phelps officiating. Burial will follow at Byron Cemetery, Fairborn. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 6245 Wilmington Pike, Centerville, Ohio 45459. Arrangements are being handled by Conner & Koch Life Celebration Home (937-848-6651).

Even though Rick's and my friend, Tony, has departed from this earth, he has never truly left...he will always be alive in my heart forever. He and Annette have been true friends for the past 57 years with many, many warm and happy memories that we made throughout all those years. Rest in peace dear friend. Daune Browne

We remember and honor Tony as a charming, wise, and kind man. He was always sensitive to others and was quick with a warm and sincere “how can I help” in times of need. We were blessed to have known Tony and fondly remember our trip to Hocking Hills and our wonderful spaghetti dinner with Tony and Annette in January. We offer our deepest sympathy to Annette and her family. God bless you all!

Tony was such a kind, good man, and I always admired his photography skills. He was loved by many and will be missed. Sending love and condolences to Annette, Alisa, Erica, Nicole, and family.

I remember Tony from the Men's Retreat team at St. Francis of Assisi. Tony was truly a kind and gentle man who was always smiling and uplifting in his words of encouragement to us all. We really appreciated his talents especially being the official photographer who somehow managed to get the entire men's retreat group, including himself, into a photo of the event. Tony will be missed by all. Ray Wasky

Tony is part of my extended family that was formed on Rawlings and Fairway Dr. As a young kid, he was one of those larger than life scary parents that somehow always knew what we were up to in the neighborhood. The biggest meals, whether it was Sunday dinner or holidays, were had at Tony and Annette's. The door was always open in Tony's house with the meatballs and pizza frieds rolled in sugar being a main stay. Everyone would be there from Alisa and Anthony, my sisters, the Bonamassa's, Pinella's & Pardee's and Meyer's. ( I guess we lived in Fairborn's Little Italy!)

Tony's photography was a huge part of his life. When I graduated from high school 40 years ago, the Giambrones gave me a graduation picture of four framed photos that Tony made in Glen Helen Nature Preserve. They knew that was my favorite place and I have cherished those pictures all these years. The photos I have attached do not do them justice.

Tony also photographed our wedding in Richmond in 1997 and they blew away what we received from the official photographer.

I am sorry to hear of Tony's passing and we wish Annette, Alisa and everyone else good memories and love
