Mario Pisano

$1,410 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 3 months
Anthony Pisano was a resident of the east village for over 40 years and a fixture in the neighborhood. Sadly, Anthony lost his battle to cancer on April 6th 2018. Known as the “mayor of 7th street” Anthony always greeted passers-by with a smile. But it didn’t stop there, he would invite anyone curious enough into his apartment (an old antique store converted into a studio apartment). To enjoy the belongings he gathered throughout his life. 

Everyone who knew him called him “Tony”. But for me it was “uncle Tony”. He lived his life simply and didn’t gather much monetary savings. His wealth came from love and compassion for his fellow human beings and sharing conversation.

As his remaining family is trying to pull together to fulfill Anthony’s final wishes. It is a very difficult task to afford a proper burial and memorial for him. That is why I ask all of you to help us give Anthony a “funeral fit for a mayor”.  Any size donation is accepted and greatly appreciated. 

I will regularly update everyone with exactly when and where the wake and funeral will be. So those of you who knew him can pay your last respects. 

Thank you you for your time and I look forward to meeting all of you.

I would like to thank everyone that donated or shared their warm thoughts of Anthony Pisano. It really was special to see how everyone came together to celebrate the impact Tony made in the lives. 7th street will never be the same, but at least his memory can live on in all of us.

He was a reminder to be kinder, and to reach out and connect with your fellow neighbor. The donations have been able to cover some costs that really helped lighten the load for his family. For that, my family and I are greatly appreciative.

As I close out this GoFundMe for my uncle Tony. I want to remind everyone that life is very special, but also fleeting. All it takes is a smile to make someone’s day better. So the next time you see something or someone peculiar, stop and satisfy your curiosity. For as my uncle Tony would say, those are the moments that make life “beautiful”.

Hello everyone, these last few days have been the toughest and happiest in my life. Seeing the support coming in from those that knew Anthony personally, and those of you that just heard his story is nothing short of amazing. It brings tears to my eyes knowing that Anthony has been able to leave a lasting impact with all of you.

Support is still so dearly needed to cover his funeral and final wishes. So please feel free to share with anyone who is interested.

I would like to update everyone with when and where the funeral will take place. It will be: Saturday April 14th, 2018 from 2pm-8pm at Peter Jarema Funeral Home 129 east 7th street 10009

Please come by to give Anthony a final send off and a “funeral fit for a mayor”.
