Anthony “Tony” Cacace, 98, of East Haven passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family at the St. Raphael Campus of Yale-New Haven Hospital. He was the husband of the late Sylvia Bellonio Cacace. He was born in East Haven on May 22, 1921, to the late John and Josephine Arcucci Cacace.
Tony was a part of the first full graduating class from East Haven High School, class of ’40. After high school, he faithfully served his country in the Army, attaining a rank of sergeant in the 7th Armored Division, Company A, during WWII. In doing so, he was awarded several medals, including the Bronze Star and Purple Heart for his bravery. He worked for 25 years for Turbine Components as a supervisor until his retirement in 1986. He also worked for H.B. Hendricks for several years. He was a true family man, who loved his New York Yankees and Lady Huskies.
He is survived by two daughters, JoAnn (Frank) Apuzzo and Rosemarie Lanno, both of East Haven; a brother, John “Corky” Cacace also of East Haven; and five grandchildren, Anthony (Tracy) Apuzzo, Frank J. (Laura) Apuzzo, Kenneth (Tiffany) Linsley, Christine (Michael) Nuzzo, and Emili Lanno. Besides his wife and parents, he was predeceased by two brothers, Joseph and Frank Cacace, and four sisters, Agnes Hainer, Mary Marino, Anna Ruocco, and Rose Cacace.
Tony’s family would like to offer a special thank you to all the nurses and doctors at the St. Raphael Campus on SL A4 and to all the staff at Branford Hills, especially Ledgewood Second Floor, for all your hard work and kindness.
