Anthony A. “Tony” Corradetti, age 97, of Brookhaven, PA, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family on Tuesday, April 18, 2023.
Born and raised in Chester, PA on May 19, 1925, he was a son of the late Massimo Corradetti and Rose (Tempera) Callichia. Tony was a proud veteran of the United States Army Air Corp. serving in England, where he completed 31 bombing missions over Germany. In Tony’s early career days, he was a pattern maker working in Chester. His last 25 years of working were spent with the DuPont Company in Wilmington at the Engineering Development Laboratory as an engineering technologist.
Tony enjoyed spending his free time being creative; he could often be found wood working or building model airplanes. He found great joy being by the water fishing or going bowling. Tony was quite the handyman and always found a way to fix anything. Above all, he treasured his family and the memories he made with them.
In addition to his parents, Tony was preceded in death by his first wife, Marie J. Corradetti; siblings, Alfred Corradetti, Elsie Quirk, Massimo Corradetti, Jr., and Rose and Mildred Callichia.
