Quaker Hill – Anthony John (Tony, Sonny) Muscarella, 84, of Quaker Hill, died August 6, 2019, peacefully, at home, and in the care of his loving family.

He was born September 26, 1934 in New London to the late Sebastian Muscarella and Clara DeJourdan. He was raised by his paternal grandparents, Antonio and Josephine Muscarella, and by his father and step-mother, Mable Muscarella.

Tony served in the United States Army as a helicopter mechanic.  A well-known and talented tradesman, he worked at Grippo Garage, Deedy Construction,  and Allied Crane, and spent the latter half of his career working for Northeast Utilities at Millstone, before retiring in 1996.

He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Rosalie Ann (née Williamson), whom he married on December 24, 1955.  His family finds peace in knowing they are together again.

A man who loved hunting, horseback riding, and snowmobiling, Tony was always prepared to greet friends and family with a new joke.  He enjoyed discussing current events, could fix anything, and his humorous one liners (“Hello! Good Morning!”) will be sorely missed.

Tony is survived by his children, Kim Blair, and her husband, David, of Waterford; David Muscarella, and his wife, Nancy, of Waterford; and Timothy (TJ) Muscarella, and his life partner, Fay Cote, of New London.  They will fondly remember their father as the hard-working and talented man he was.

Tony is also survived by his grandchildren, Megan Ball, and her husband, Patrick, of Hudson, Mass.; Timothy Muscarella Jr., and his wife, Lindsay, of East Lyme; Tammy Taylor, of Waterford; and Wayne Jones, of Waterford, who are grateful to have held their Pop Pop’s hand during his final days of life.

In addition, Tony is survived by many extended family members and friends, including seven great grandchildren, his niece Valerie Ostronic and her husband, Thomas, of Quaker Hill, and their son, Tristan Ostronic, of Brookline, Mass. His family wishes to thank Center for Hospice Care, for their wonderful care and attention giving to their Dad, and a special thank you to, Rachel, Chris and John.

His family will receive relatives and friends on Friday from 6 to 8 pm at the Impellitteri-Malia Funeral Home, 84 Montauk Ave., New London. A graveside service will be held on Saturday at 11 am in Cedar Grove Cemetery with Military Honors. Donations in his memory to Center for Hospice Care, 227 Dunham St. Norwich, CT 06320.
