Anthony C. Ricciardi Jr.

Anthony C. Ricciardi Jr. of Central Valley passed away Friday, Aug. 21, 2020, after a long courageous battle with cancer. He was 52 years old.

Anthony was born Nov. 11, 1967, in Yonker, the son of Anthony and Sandra (Molinari) Ricciardi.

Anthony was a graduate of Monroe-Woodbury “Class Clown” of ‘85.

Throughout his life, he routinely put the interest of others in front of his own and it’s no surprise he settled into a service-oriented career. He was a service manager for several dealerships throughout the Hudson Valley area.

His passions were his family, his friends, his sidekick and beloved dog, Delilah, cooking, the New York Yankees, Jets and Rangers.

Anthony was the beloved son of Sandra Ricciardi, loving father of Isabella (Angel) Ricciardi, baby brother of Regina Ricciardi, life-long partner of Renee (Mia) Warbrick, son-in-law to Little Lady Linda Warbrick, brother-in-law to Stephen Warbrick and Julie Worth, nephew of Barbara Stilo and God Father to Joseph Ricciardi and Ricky DiLello.

Anthony is also survived by innumerable brothers-at-heart, several cousins who were more like siblings and many great-cousins who referred to him as Uncle Ant.

Anthony was predeceased by his father Anthony C. Ricciardi Sr.

Anthony will be remembered for his big loving heart, quick wit, inspiring strength, occasional stubborn disposition and his love for his family and friends.

The Big Guy was a class act loved by all those that knew him. He never met a stranger and will be missed by all.

Anthony’s optimism and personality presented best when he’d remark, “forward, always forward.”
