Anthony was born and raised in South Philadelphia in the "devil's pocket' section which he was quite proud of. Anthony fixed everything around the house with duct tape and this was before the TV show "MacGyver". He loved his home down in the Villas, NJ especially his swimming pool in the back yard. He enjoyed going to the casinos, the horse races, old western movies, anything Frank Sinatra sang and many times relaxing just watching the Cape May Ferry near his home.
