In 1932 he married the former Eleanor Holt and they settled in Portland and raised their family. During their early years he was employed by Cumberland County Power Company as a laborer.

When World War II broke out he was unable to enlist because of a hearing problem, so he was hired by Bath Iron Works as a ship fitter on the Liberty Ships that were being built at the South Portland Shipyard.

After the war was over, he found a job with the Cumberland County Power Company’s successor, Central Maine Power Company and remained with that company until his retirement.

After Tony’s retirement from Central Maine Power Company, he was employed as a crossing guard at the Henley School in South Portland. When health problems forced him to give up that job, he spent his time at home, taking long walks, playing cribbage and pinochle, and entertaining friends. He enjoyed sitting in the sun doing his word games as he kept watch on the neighborhood of Preble Street and Fort Road.

Antonio is survived by his wife Eleanor of Cape Elizabeth; his brother James and his wife Louise of Texas, and his brother George and his wife Karen of Windham. His only sister, Dorothy DeSimon, predeceased him.
