Anthony Postighone, 93, Mount Vernon Resident

MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Anthony Postighone, of Mount Vernon, died Monday, April 11. He was 93.

He was a resident of Mount Vernon all his life. He served his country stateside in the U.S. Coast Guard during World War II. When he returned home, he started his own carpet business, Anflo, with his wife, and still was installing carpet up until he got sick.

His passion in life, when he had the time, was that he loved to dabble with his oils and paints. He was most proficient in capturing the emotions of clowns in his art work.

He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Florence; his four sons, Neil, Peter, Paul and Anthony; and three grandchildren, Clifford, Steve and Alison.

Family will receive relatives and friends from 2-7 p.m. Thursday at the Yannantuono, Burr, Davis and Sharpe Funeral Home, 584 Gramatan Ave., Mount Vernon. A prayer service will be offered at the funeral home at 10:30 a.m. Firday. Entombment will follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery, 575 Hillside Ave., White Plains.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks anyone wishing to honor him make a memorial donation to Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation , 199 Water St., Floor 23, New York, NY 10273-0211.
