So sorry for your loss Masi family, I can remember when my cousins Betty and Tony came to visit my mom and dad, we always enjoyed seeing them. He always carried a camera and took pictures but we never got to see any of them, but he loved taking pictures of us all. We never new He was in the service, he never talked about it. You must be very proud.my thoughts and prayers are with you all.cousin Anna zampirri Coroneos

My deepest sympathy goes to the entire Masi family & friends. Anthony (as we always called him) was a cousin who, while on leave from the Army, visited us at the Old Homestead of the Vitch Family in Schenectady, NY. We were cousins from a family that is very near the end of that line of the family relationships. However, I am so very glad that he did attend the last Vitch Family Reunion in 2008 as a surprise guest. (Thanks to you, Arlene & the family). He is a member of an everlasting breed of heroes from long ago that will never be repeated. RIP, Cousin, Anthony.
