Anthony John Corrado, Jr., age 68, passed away on Monday, January 25, 2010.
He was a native of Hartford, Connecticut and resided in NWF since 1972.
He was a retired U.S. Navy Sr. Chief Petty Officer with 24 years of service.
Among many other deployments, he served as a helicopter crew chief during the Vietnam War and a field team technical advisor in Iran, ultimately earning his Combat Aircrew Wings. Continuing his passion with all things Navy, he worked as a Plane Captain with LL3 at NAS Whiting Field where he was affectionately known as "The Candy Man."
He was preceded in death by his brother, Bobby Corrado; parents, Tony and Dot Corrado; and a daughter, Tonya Leann Corrado.
Tony is survived by his wife of 40 years, Pete Corrado of Pace; two sons, Rusty (Nancy) Johnston of Milton and Mike (Diane) Corrado of Middleburg, FL; two daughters, Stacy (Billy) Carter of Navarre and Tara (Ray) Albarado of Middletown, RI; 11 grandchildren; one great-grandchild; one sister, Chickie (Ed) Gould of Clearwater, FL; five nephews; and many, many special friends.
He was a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather. Known to his grandchildren and great-grandchild as "PaPa," Tony enjoyed every moment with them from pretending to be a monster, doing magic tricks, and giving them rides on the four wheeler.
Never one to turn down a talk about Navy life, he looked forward to his breakfast with his buddies the first Tuesday of every month.
Funeral service will be 11:00am, Thursday, January 28, 2010 at Lewis Funeral Home Pace Chapel. The family will receive friends on Wednesday, January 27, 2010 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Lewis Funeral Home Pace Chapel. Burial will follow in the Serenity Gardens.
Family and friends may send condolences and share fond memories at
