Anthony James Langello, Jr., passed away with his daughter at his side, Tuesday morning, July 11, 2023 at the Greenwood Center. He was 79 years old and was the devoted husband to his late wife Margaret (Orabona) Langello.
He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Toni (Langello) D’Antonio and John D’Antonio of Norwalk, CT; and his “adopted” son, James Souza of Stamford, CT.
Born Sept. 6, 1943, in Johnston, he was the son of the late Anthony James Langello, Sr. and Filomena “Fannie” (Piccoli) Langello.
Also known as “Tony”, he was a man of many talents and skills. A multi successful business owner in the burgeoning days of the jewelry and accessory business, a custom-made personalized cigar business, a lucrative hardware store and ultimately an auto event company that earned him the famous moniker “Tony the Price Crusher”. He was the life of any party, the one with the greatest stories and the best craps teacher ever in his homemade basement casino.
He was kind, funny, playful and a person you’d always want by your side in any situation. A loving and supportive, “Daddy” who was forever supportive, encouraging and inspiring for all things in the creative arts, music and nature. A bold and vibrant soul with an infectious smile that will forever be cherished and missed with unforgettable memories. You can bet on it.
Visitation will take place Sunday, July 16, from 4pm until 7pm in the “WOODLAWN” Funeral Home, 600 Pontiac Ave., Cranston. His funeral will begin Monday, July 7, at 9am from the “WOODLAWN” Funeral Home, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10am in Ss. Rose and Clement Church, Long St., Warwick.
