Anthony L. Forestieri

Died: 1/21/2011

Anthony L. Forestieri, known fondly as Buck, age 77, of New Castle, DE, died on Friday, January 21, 2011.

A native Delawarean, Mr. Forestieri was born in Wilmington on February 20, 1933, son of the late Anthony Forestieri and Marion A. Smith Forestieri. He proudly served his country in the US Navy during the Korean War. He would go on to make his career as a sales representative with Color Craft, where he retired after many years of service. He later worked in private security.

In his leisure hours, Mr. Forestieri greatly enjoyed crabbing, fishing, and bowling. Most of all, he delighted in spending time with his beloved family.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 43 years, Elnor A. Thomas Forestieri, in 1997. He is survived by his children, Anthony L. Forestieri, Jr. (Sharon) of New Castle, Denise M. Turner (Donald) of Clayton, and Cynthia M. Forestieri of New Castle; brothers, William Forestieri of Bear and John Forestieri of Rehoboth; grandchildren, Dawn, Donnie, Vincent, Constance, and Marion; and great grandchildren, Breanna and Dylan.

Services will be held privately and at the convenience of the family.
