Anthony Joseph “Tony” Aulisio, 73, passed away Friday, April 17, 2020.
Tony was born in Youngstown, March 25, 1947, the son of Carmel and Anthony Aulisio.
He grew up on the North Side, graduating from The Rayen School, and working with his father at Aulisio’s Fish Market. Tony attended college for a couple of years, but he had an entrepreneurial spirit and eventually opened multiple small businesses in the Youngstown area, including his own fish market and seafood restaurant.
Later in life, Tony specialized in home improvement sales, which he thoroughly enjoyed for the personal relationships he made along the way.
All who knew Tony were welcomed by his big smile and warmed by his big heart. He was a loving father and he cherished nothing more than being surrounded by family and friends.
Taking after his parents, Tony was an amazing cook and his favorite way to express himself and his love for others was through food. He loved family gatherings and holidays and always went out of his way to make them so special. His warmth and laughter will be sorely missed.
Tony is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Michele Evans and Kevin White of Columbus; son and daughter-in-law, Anthony and Anna Aulisio of Washington, D.C.; sister and brother-in-law, Mary Lou and Joseph Carlucci of Barberton; and extended family and many close friends.
Tony was preceded in death by his parents, Carmel and Anthony Aulisio, and his great aunt, Mary Carbon, who helped raise him.
The family would like to thank Tony’s doctors and nurses at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, especially the staff in the ICU, for the caring and kindness they showed him. Their unwavering service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.
Following the wishes of his daughter and son, there will be no funeral services. A celebration of life will be held at a later time. Condolences and special memories can be shared with the family online at www.heritagecremationsociety.com
