Obituary of Anthony Chianese

Anthony Andrew Chianese, 42, of Blairstown, formerly of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Newton, died suddenly of heart failure on Friday, January 12, 2018.
 
Born in Yonkers, NY, Anthony was the son of Robert and Claudia Chianese. Raised in Newton, he graduated from high school there before furthering his education at the University of New Mexico. There, he met and married Louise Aragon and together they raised two beautiful children.
 
Anthony held a career in customer service, first employed in car sales and later by Wells Fargo in Albuquerque.
 
Anthony was always interested in body building, and in his spare time could always be found at the gym. He had a great sense of humor, and everyone that knew him loved him. Anthony was always willing to help just about anyone, and wouldn’t hurt a fly.
 
His children, though, were the center of his life. This past Christmas they were blessed to spend 10 days together in sunny Florida, visiting his parents.
 
Anthony is survived by his children, Dominic and Alexandria; his parents, Robert and Claudia; his loving sister, Janine Patricia Chianese; his childhood friend and current girlfriend, Laura Schneider; his aunt, Lauren Cowell and her husband Charles; as well as his loving aunts, Mel, Judy, Marty, and Abbie, and Uncles Vic, Drew, and Matt; and not to be forgotten, his 94-year-old Nana Boo.
 
Visiting hours will be Sunday, January 14 from 1-4 pm at the funeral home.
 
In lieu of flowers, donations in Anthony’s memory to your local Good Will would be greatly appreciated by his family.
