Anthony 'Tony' Schiavone, 68, passed away March 21, at home surrounded by family, after a short illness.
Born in Youngstown, OH on January 2,1952, to the late Salvatore & Minnie (Ambrosio) Schiavone, Tony was a lifetime resident of Vienna.

Later, he worked in the oil & gas industry as a title abstractor before retiring. Along with spending time with family, his passions in life included golf, traveling and being a die-hard Browns and Indians fan as well as rooting for the YSU Penguins and the Buckeyes.
