Anthony was born October 28, 1943 in Brooklyn, New York to Frank and Elizabeth Schirripa. He graduated from Lafayette High School in Brooklyn, New York in 1961. He served in the United States Marine Corp as a Lance Corporal from 1961-1966. On May 31, 1970, he married his wife Maryann Schirripa, in Brooklyn, New York. Anthony was employed by Conair and retired at the age of 45. Anthony and his wife opened their own restaurant and bar business in Lakewood, New Jersey. He was a bus driver and taxi driver; he enjoyed working to provide for his family and took pride in all he did. He was a 50-year member of the Knights of Columbus Council #4969. He enjoyed traveling, talking on the phone, playing cards, playing sudoku, watching tv and spending time with his daughters and grandchildren whenever he could. He was one of a kind; someone that made such an impression on you that you can never forget him. Anthony was so smart, caring, funny and charismatic. He was the guy who would give you the shirt off his back. Anthony was the best dad and pop-pop; we are all better people because of him.
Anthony is survived by his three daughters, Michele Alderman and her husband Scott, Rachael Schirripa, Anjelica Rivera and her husband Felix; 3 grandchildren, Dominic Alderman, Isabella Nelson, Anthony Alderman; his brother Carmine Schirripa and his wife Mariejean. He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Elizabeth, his sister Nancy, his brother Rocky and his loving wife of 48 years, Maryann Schirripa in 2018. Anthony was a good man, loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend to everyone.
A very special thank you to the people at Serenity Hospice, Atlantic Care Rehabilitation and Monmouth Medical Hospital Southern Campus for their loving care and support during his final days. Also, the family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude towards Oliverie Funeral Home & Crematory for being very accommodating and understanding during this difficult time.
