Anthony Joseph Maselli

Anthony Joseph Maselli died peacefully at home in Chelsea, Alabama surrounded by his family including his loyal Doberman, Captain on October 20, 2022. He was 80.Anthony was born in Brooklyn, New York on March 20, 1942.  He grew up in Elmont, New York. He was preceded in death by his late wife Kathleen Frosina- Maselli, his father Joseph F. Maselli and Mother Anna Delach Maselli. He is survived by his wife Toni Beasley-Maselli and her son Jack.  He is also survived by his sister Claudia Maselli-Bazzi (Ghali) of Chelsea, Alabama. Anthony began working in the lawn service business on Long Island with his best friend Salvatore Mancuso. The job was very labor intensive, so he decided to enlist in the Army and was trained to become a Medic based in Augsburg, Germany.  He took advantage of being in Europe and traveled to many countries when on R and R. Upon returning home he had the opportunity of buying a home delivery route business delivering for pizzerias, florists, pharmacies, and bakeries.  He never met a stranger, a trait he got from his mother.  He met Kathy his late wife from a mutual friend.  During that time she was diagnosed with MS.  But at the same time, he lost his leg to MRSA from a toe infection and had to be amputated, but he took it like a trooper and stayed positive.  He decided that it was time to move to Chelsea, Alabama to give her a better life and to be near her family.  He was her caregiver until her passing in 2011. They were married for 28 years. After Kathy passed he met his wife Toni-Beasley Maselli while riding his golf cart from the ridge to the lake. They became friends and married 7 years ago. Anthony was very active and would go riding his CanAm with his Harley buddies and have breakfast at Bojangles during the week. They would discuss the world problems and how to solve them. This last year was a roller coaster with his health. He had many problems, but tried to remain positive.  His wife Toni had to find him a Care Giver which she was very successful in doing and kept him company for several months while his health declined.  Ms. LaCretia was truly a God Send for the family and became part of the family. A graveside service will be held at the outside columbarium of Saint Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church on Saturday, November 5th at 1:00 pm. Friends and family are invited to a remembrance meal at Lloyd’s Restaurant immediately following the service.
