Anthony W. Candido of Purchase, New York passed away on Sunday, January 19, 2020 at the age of 83 after recent months of declining health.  He succumbed to cancer, dying at his home in Purchase with his beloved wife at his side.  Tony was a generous and devoted man who dearly loved his wife, four children, and six grandchildren.

Tony was born June 30, 1936 in New Rochelle, New York to Italian immigrants Immacolata Monteleone and Ilario Candido.  As a young boy he enjoyed pigeon racing, and was raised in a humble home in New Rochelle then Mount Vernon with his three siblings Antoinette, Salvatore, and Rose.

As a young man he developed a strong work ethic from his parents.  He paid his way through night school, working as a carpenter, graduating from Iona College in New Rochelle and serving in the National Guard.  His business savvy and strong work ethic would someday enable him and his brother Sal to launch and grow a very successful computer company, Manhattan Information Systems, Inc.  As President and owner for 45 years, Tony earned recognition as a leading entrepreneur of small business.

However, Tony’s true passion and pride in life was his family.  In 1961, he met the love of his life, Susan Adamo, whom he married two years later.  Tony and Sue were loyal and loving companions for over 56 years.  Always an excellent provider for his wife, four children, and their families, Tony loved vacationing with his family at the Jersey shore for over 50 years.

Anthony is survived by his wife Susan, his children Debra (Mark Passalacqua), Christine (Michael DePaoli), Gregory (Rose Incardona) and Darren Candido.  He was a loving grandfather to his six grandchildren: Justino and Alyssa Passalacqua, Alexandra and Ryan DePaoli, Rhianna and Genna Candido, and a devoted brother to his two sisters, Antoinette Friscia and RoseMarie Roos.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Salvatore.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Church of St. Anthony of Padua in West Harrison, New York.

    Dearest Sue,
    Seeing the beauty of Anthony’s face touched me deeply. Yours returned to me and I experienced such a surge of love for you both…and I barely know you. Thank you for all you both gave to this life and for your love which, I believe, was an inspiration to so many. You are both in my heart and prayer,
    Pat Radulovic, Following Christ

    Miss you Dad more than I could ever imagine!! It has been so wonderful hearing so many people tell me how you touch their lives.
    What an amazing impact you had on many! But I knew that already long before you left this earth! I pray every single day that God
    holds you in the palm of his hand and grants you eternal life–may you forever rest in peace! You are forever in my heart!
