Anthony William Tedeschi of Moorestown, New Jersey passed away on Sunday, February 7, at the age of 76.

Regarding marriage Tony would always say, “you can be right or you can be happy.” After high school Tony attended the University of Nebraska until his father passed suddenly and he had to take over the family grocery store. Upon selling the store, he went into the investment business as a stockbroker in 1969. He quickly built a very successful practice and was quoted in such publications as the New York Times and Bloomberg. Tony was a lifetime member of the Union League of Philadelphia. The most cherished thing in Tony’s life was his family. Whether it was his wife, children, grandchildren, cousins and close friends he loved spending time with them at get-togethers and having a good meal. To him family was everything and he will be dearly missed by all. In later years Tony struggled with a variety of health issues but remained positive till the end. Anthony was preceded in death by his parents and by his brother Ralph Tedeschi.
