Antonio Ferri Passes Away

Antonio “Tony” Ferri died at home Dec. 12 from congestive heart failure. He was 84 years old.

Mr. Ferri was born in Broccostella, Italy on Jan. 10, 1925. He immigrated to Canada in 1950 where he worked on a farm and in construction. In 1956, Mr. Ferri married Lidia Vani, also of Broccostella, and the couple moved to New York. In 1961, he opened Tony’s Hero Shop on Old Country Road and three years later moved his family to Westbury.

Tony’s Hero Shop became a success and Mr. Ferri served hundreds of people daily. Many customers who moved away from the Westbury area made a point of stopping by Tony’s while in town, often buying trays of frozen food and flying it home with them as carry-on luggage.

Tony’s was truly a family business for nearly 40 years and a regular supporter of Little League baseball and other numerous community groups. The Ferris owned and operated Tony’s Hero Shop until 2000, at which time a long time employee took over, maintaining many of the traditional dishes and adding their own.

A funeral Mass was held Dec. 16 at St. Brigid’s Church in Westbury followed by Interment at Holy Rood Cemetery.
