In Memory of



Obituary for Anthony Marano

Anthony Marano, 35 of Wayne, NJ
The first born and favorite Golden Child! Born 4/4/1985

During the early morning hours on November 17th, 2020 Anthony took a train to heaven. He grew up in Franklin Lakes & Wayne, NJ. He is remember for his sense of humor, smile and sparkling blue eyes. He was the kind of guy that if you were with him you felt safe and well protected. He had exemplary manners except when he wolfed down his food.

The day Anthony died, a part of us died along with him. We will miss him every day for the rest of our lives, along with his unique little shuffle in his step.

He is survived by his mother Deborah Frank Kuehnel, her husband Tom and his sister Michelle Marano, her partner Rob Beattys and her two children Layne & Violet. His cousin who is more like a second sister, Erika Frank. His grandma Eva, his grandma Jackie, His aunt Annie, uncle Tom & cousins Tommy & Stephanie Carleo, his Uncle Scott & Aunt Evelyn, His uncle John & Aunt Jeanette, and his family, his uncle Ray and his family, his aunt Linda, and her family, and cousins Shaun Connelly & Melissa Wagner, Along with countless other Aunts, Uncles and cousins on both sides.

He is predeceased by his father Anthony “Tony” Marano, his step father Bill Messineo, his paternal grandparents Tony and Tina, from Lodi, NJ. His paternal aunt Rose, along with countless other aunts, uncles, and cousins on his paternal side.

He is predeceased by his maternal grandfather Jack Frank, his uncle Bob Frank, uncle Michael Frank and his beloved cousin Raccine Frank, who hopefully hugged him tight, and then gave him a good hard love tap upside this head.

He loved clothes, and had a great sense of style. In his early years he was a print and commercial actor. Later in life he found his passion, cutting and styling hair. He loved fast cars, anything Italian, gangster movies, music and food.

Our broken hearts will forever feel the loss and emptiness of his absence. We only hope we learn to live with the pain in our hearts of never hearing him call our names or hear his laughter, never seeing the spring in his steps! We truly will miss you Anthony. Heaven is blessed to have you!

Private cremation was held with a memorial service at a later date.

Remember him by making a donation to St. Judes children’s hospital. A cause he loved.
