Anthony William Vagnoni passed away suddenly on January 31, 2017.

Tony was born in 1983 as part of the first set of quadruplets in Delaware. Tony graduated from Concord High School in 2001. He was starting quarterback for the football team, played baseball throughout his high school career, and was crowned Mr. CHS during his senior year. After high school, Tony lived in Reading, PA and later moved to the Delaware Beaches. Tony enjoyed listening to music and spending time with his friends. He loved all sports and the Philadelphia Eagles were his favorite team. Even though he had his own struggles, he always found a way to help others, he had a big heart and saw the best in everyone.

Anthony will be greatly missed by his father, David Vagnoni; maternal grandmother, Gladys Burk; sisters, Lindsey Donovan, Kelsey Vagnoni, Ashley Chapa, Samantha Watson; brother, David Vagnoni; and extensive family and friends.
