To the Agatone Family Anthony was a great guy! Even loved to tease and joke in grade school. He was pretty good at it and almost beat me as Student Council President;). I can't even imagine how much you all miss him. My thoughts, prayers and love are with all of you.

Dear Agatone Family, I will pray for you to find some kind of peace and acceptance on the anniversary of your beloved Anthony's passing. He is so missed and mourned by so many people. He was a wonderful human being. I hope that you will have a Blessed Christmas and peace in the New Year.

To the Agatone family, I just was informed of the news. I haven't seen Anthony since College. But he was a great friend during my college years. Anthony and I went to a pet store when we were in College and we bought Cockateals, one for him and one for me. Mine was named Herschel. Its been so many years I cant remember what he called his. We had a lot of laughs together and I appreciated his friendship very much. I thought about him and many other College friends through the years but, Anthony was a special guy. I am so sorry for your families loss. He will remain in my thoughts and prayers as will your family as you rebuild and heal from this. With many fond memories, Paul Heemskerk

To the entire Agatone Family - I am so sorry for your tremendous loss. I went to BSHS w/Anthony. Even in high school (when we are all still formulating who we will become) he was such a wonderful person. Sweet, gentle and great sense of humor! We shared a lot of laughs. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

Like it was yesterday, I can remember working Track & Field events at Harrison with Anthony when Billy and Dallin were there. I can tell you there were lots of laughs. I especially enjoyed his "communion shuffle" story. From that point on, I would look for you guys at Saturday night mass. And there he would be, the end of the line so he didn't have to do the "communion shuffle". What an incredible loss for so many people. Jamie, I can't imagine the loss for you and your boys. I am so sorry this has happened. Please know you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Kathy

I knew Anthony from work and even with not knowing him well, can see from others around him that he was a good man that made people smile.
Posted by Scott Fell on 17th December 2014
Anthony and I were college roommates at Elizabethtown. I remember him aways laughing, joking around and watching out for others. To read all these tribunes from friends, family, co-workers and people that he touched is a testament to his character and the incredible person he was when we were "kids in college" and continued throughout his life. Rest in Peace my friend.
Posted by Mike McCourt on 17th December 2014
Very sorry to hear this. Played basketball with Dallin when we were little. Mr. Anthony was a great guy. Always waved to me when he was running and I was outside. He always had a smile on his face. RIP
Posted by Jada Poller on 17th December 2014
Dear Agatone Family, Anthony was a great person to be around and he always asked how I was doing when I saw him in the hallway at work. Anthony always had a smile and a word of encouragement for people and he had a lot of passion for life. May God comfort the Agatone family and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am deeply sorry for your loss of Anthony. I worked with him for many years until I retired. He was an amazing, wonderful and sweet man who I cared for a lot. He always made me smile. My prayers are with your entire family that you will find peace. God Bless You.
Posted by Jennifer Bagin on 17th December 2014
Dear Jamie, Dallin, Cade & Cavan, Anthony was an amazing man that touched the entire Bagin family in a different way. Gary's tribute will be written separately, but I will miss his infectious smile and presence dearly at all of our kids' sporting events, including soccer games and cross country meets. He and I talked about running almost every time that we saw each other, and I will miss that so much because we understood each other's love for it. He loved our boys and constantly encouraged them whenever he came in contact with them. I know that he will watch over and protect all of us from Heaven, may God rest your soul in peace, Anthony. With love, the Bagins

To Jamie and your sons. Although we have never met I am compelled to share with you that which you already know, that Anthony was and will remain a very special person in all of our hearts. I worked with Anthony at Boeing. Each time I saw him during one of my travels (we worked at different sites) he made me feel very welcome, like part of the team, his work family. Anthony always made us smile, he knew what was valuable and even during difficult discussions he always made others feel their thoughts were valuable and worth consideration. I knew him as an honorable man, a caring individual, a leader, someone I will never forget and hope I can live up to some of his achievements myself. May God grant you and your family peace through this untimely loss, knowing what an impact beyond your immediate family circle your husband had on his colleagues and associates. We will miss him greatly. God Bless.

I have a lot of good memories growing up in Springfield, with the Agatone Family as neighbors. From playing in the back yard, walking to school, or just hanging out. I can remember playing football and being on the track team with Anthony... these are the good things I will remember about him. My family has his parents and siblings, in our thoughts and prayers.
Posted by Larry Schnepp on 16th December 2014
To the entire Agatone Family, reading through these posts provides a testimony to the kind of man that Anthony is. Saw the Agatone family on the boardwalk in Ocean City NJ and we exchanged hello's a few years ago. Words cannot express the sorrow we feel at the loss of a "good" man. My prayer for you is that the sadness and grief you feel can soon be replaced by happy memories of the times you shared as "family". My family will continue to pray for you and your family that God and Anthony will watch over you and give you peace. God Bless You.

What more can be said about such a wonderful person, boss, co-worker, husband, father, son, uncle!! Always there for you even when he was out of the office for the day. Anthony will always hold a special place in my life for all of his kind acts during my own personal trials. Take sollice in knowing that he was the kindest man I have ever known and he is missed terribly. My prayers will remain with you all.

Agatone Family, My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Anthony was a great person. His radiance was all around Boeing. He will be sadly missed at Boeing. Anthony will be watching over all of you forever. God Bless you and your family. Mary D’Avella
Posted by William McDowell on 16th December 2014
Dear Agatone Family, Anthony was a great friend. I remember when he first became a boss at Boeing. There were lots of layoffs at that time, people were being moved around and I had got assigned to him. When I got there I knew I was being moved again in 2 weeks because I was the low man in his group and it was his turn to lose a man. Anthony felt so bad for me because I was being moved again he said “I’m taking you to lunch because I feel so bad for you and you’re the first person I’m losing as a manager”. I told him he didn’t have to do that because it wasn’t his fault and I wasn’t being laid-off, I was just being moved again. But that’s how he was…always concerned for others. He is sadly missed!

To the family of Anthony I was sadden when I heard about husband, son and father . I am praying that God would comfort you Jamie and the children. God loves you and cares and he is the Greatest comforter. Call on him and he will answer you and wrap you in his arms. With tears of sadness Lannette Fleming co-worker

Posted by Chris Schmidt on 16th December 2014
I met Anthony in September 1987 while attending my freshman year at Elizabethtown College. As 3-south hall mates, we shared a unique group of friends that still to this day get together at least yearly to reminisce about all of the great experiences, stories and carefree times college life affords you. Anthony had a unique way to his humor that no matter the mood; could always make me laugh and I remember that most about him. While in school we shared a great deal of free time together doing the things college kids do and sometimes shouldn't. I can't put into words how deeply saddened I was to hear of Anthony's passing and how much he will be missed by me, my family and our circle of college friends. I'll miss you my friend.

I was absolutely heartbroken to hear of Mr. Agatone's passing. He was, hands-down, one of the best and most genuine people I've ever known. My brother and I spent tons of time in the Agatone's house when we were younger, playing with Dallin, Cade, and Cavan. He was always around to have a conversation with, to crack jokes with- I don't think I ever heard him say something that didn't put a smile on my face. He was always being silly and joking around. One time, he walked in from work and I was sitting at his kitchen table, doing my homework while the boys were downstairs playing, and he said, "Wow. I wish Jamie had a work ethic like yours!" and cracked his big smile. He waved to my family every time he would run by us, even after we beeped at him one time and scared him so bad he nearly fell over. Every time I said hello to him, I got a "Hey Nicoletta, how are you, hun?" and every time I said goodbye, I was told to take care, a simple thing I'll miss so much. He was one of the sweetest people there was. I know that he would do anything for anyone. He was so very special to everyone who knew him. I never knew a neighbor could have such a positive impact on someone's life. To the entire Agatone family- I'm deeply sorry for your loss and my thoughts, prayers, sympathy, and love are with all of you guys...Mr. Agatone may not be here with us anymore, but he will live on forever in our hearts.

Jamie, Dallin, Cade and Cavin, It is with very heavy hearts that we extend our sincere condolences. Anthony was a wonderful person who will be greatly missed. We always enjoyed laughing with him on the sidelines at the boys games and waving to him as we saw him jogging in town. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. ~The Sindoni Family

I just want to start by saying that Anthony was a great man and will be greatly missed. Not just great at one thing, but a great coach and great neighbor, and I'm sure he was also a wonderful husband and father. I hadn't seen him much lately, but when I was younger the two of us spent a rather large amount of time with each other, even when our relationship was just a kid to a friend's father. I always commuted to places with him, and it was especially awesome when during the last soccer game of the 2011 season when I played goalie, and some kid got on a break away. I made a good save and the game ended with that. Needless to say he led the charge onto the field with the team behind him, as the great coach and person he was in general. In conclusion, he was a truly great man and he will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jamie, Dallin, Cade, and Cavan.

Dear Agatone Family - There are no words to say how sorry we are for your loss. Some of our best memories - particularly Aidan's - were how supportive Anthony was of Dallin and the whole cross country / track teams. Anthony always had a kind word of encouragement for Aidan and was ever present at the meets - cheering everyone on. Your family will remain in our prayers. Sincerely, The Mokris Family

Many of us on the Clearview Cross Country team are broken-hearted for the Agatone family. Anthony has always been such a strong supporter of his sons and just one of the most decent people anyone will ever meet. Life can be so cruel. The one ray of sunshine is that many of Anthony's great features, his intensity, his patience, his genuine concern, his warmth, his sense of humor, will live on through the fine young men he fathered.
Posted by Mike Bickford on 15th December 2014
The entire Agatone family is in my thoughts and prayers. I always enjoyed chatting with Anthony in the hallways before and after meetings. When I was new to the group, and needed help, I always knew Anthony could point me in the right direction. He was a great co-worker and an even better person. I feel extremely lucky to have known him. I hope you can all find comfort in knowing that he was such a liked individual. RIP Anthony.
