Obituary for Anthony "Tony" DiStefano

April 21, 2017
Brigantine, New Jersey


DiStefano, Anthony "Tony" – 64, of Brigantine, passed away on Friday, April 21, 2017 after a valiant battle with cancer. Born in Camden, NJ, Anthony resided at the seashore in Brigantine, NJ for more than 40 years. He was a well-respected local realtor in Brigantine, starting at Walker-Rogge Realtors and most notably with Atlantic Coast Realtors.

Anthony enjoyed fishing on his boats, travelling to St. Augustine and the Keys in Florida, attending car shows, walking on the boardwalk, and spending time with his family. He also enjoyed watching shows about ghost-hunting, alien encounters, and Big Foot. He could be found on most summer nights on his front porch conversing with family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors.

He was a loving son, husband, father, uncle, and friend. Although he is no longer with us, he leaves behind his kindness, positivity, dedication, and pride. He will be most remembered for his ability to connect with others and his cautionary tales of jumping on the bed.

Anthony is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Deborah (Adamo) and his two beloved daughters, Rachel and Dana, his F.I.L. Ken, brother and sister in-laws, Dan and Cathy, Diane and Al, Doug and Darleen, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and close friends. He is predeceased by his mother Rose, grandmother Margaret, "best" mother-in-law Fran, brother Christopher, and sister Diane.
