Anthony Schiavone 1952-2020

VIENNA — Anthony “Tony” Schiavone, 68, passed away Saturday, March 21, 2020, at his home after a short illness, surrounded by family.

He was born Jan. 2, 1952, in Youngstown, to the late Salvatore and Minnie Ambrosio Schiavone. Tony was a lifetime resident of Vienna.

He was a 1970 graduate of Ursuline High School and attended Youngstown State University. He worked in the family grocery business for over 25 years before owning a travel agency in the late 90s. Later, he worked in the oil and gas industry as a title abstractor before retiring.

Along with spending time with family, his passions in life included golf, traveling and being a diehard Browns and Indians fan, as well as rooting for the YSU Penguins and the OSU Buckeyes.

Tony is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Carol Whiteside Schiavone; his children, Chris (Lori) Schiavone of Cortland, Jackie (Eric) Anthony of Cuyahoga Falls and Sal (Sarah) Schiavone of Tallmadge; and grandchildren, Cooper, Matthew, Grace, Mary, Sydney and Sage.

Thank you to those who cared for Tony during his illness at the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland Clinic Edwin Shaw Rehab, Ohio Living Hospice and Home Instead.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held privately and a celebration of Tony’s life will take place in the summer.
