Carbone, Anthony C., 83 of Clearwater passed away peacefully on February 12, 2013. Tony was born in Brooklyn, NY to Charles and Mary Carbone on July 1, 1929. He and his twin brother Alex served in the army and later worked together at The New York Metropolitan Transit Authority. In 1951 Tony joined the US Army, where he was part of the 28th Division Company L 109th Infantry Regiment, AKA "The Iron Division". He became an accomplished marksman and supported NATO forces on tours of Germany, Italy, France, Belgium and Holland. Tony returned to civilian life in NYC, where he worked for the MTA for 25 years in the turnstile department and moonlighted in Coney Island working on the famous "Cyclone" wooden roller coaster. He retired to Clearwater in 1979. Tony enjoyed cooking, particularly Italian dishes, winning over many hearts with his eggplant parmigiana and his excellent red sauce with meatballs, for which he will be remembered, along with his tireless work ethic and his disarming, yet charming sarcastic wit. Tony is survived by his wife of 55 years, Josephine, his children Maria Milazzo (Nick), Anthony Jr., Colette, Josephine Perry (Doug) and Christopher (Nichole) and grandchildren Matthew, Nicole, Alyssa and Christina. The family will receive friends Thursday 2/14 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park and Funeral Home at 2853 Sunset Point Road, Clearwater. A mass will be held on Friday, 2/15 at 1030 am at St. Michael's Catholic Church and burial will follow at Sylvan Abbey.
