Thomas Anthony Castellone

September 6, 1923 ~ June 22, 2017 (age 93)

Thomas A. Castellone died peacefully  on  Thursday, June 22, 2017,  surrounded  by  his  family.  Mr.  Castellone  was born  in  The Bronx, NY  on September 6th, 1923.  He had lived in Westfield for the past 52 years and enjoyed summers in Silver Beach, N.J.  Tom was  deeply devoted  to  his  family.  His greatest joy was spending time and laughing with his children,  grandchildren  and  friends.  It was his unconditional love, spirit, kindness and sense of humor that people knew and admired most.

Tom  was  raised  in  The Bronx, NY, by Thomas and Louisa Castellone, with his siblings, Rose, Richard, Dorothy, Madeline, Phyllis, Anthony and Eugene.  He enlisted in the Navy and served during World War II on the USS Boston. He  worked  for  the  New  York Telephone Company in New York, NY for 40 years,  where  he  met his wife. They were married in Hillside,  N.J.  and  later  moved  to Westfield, where he was a member of Holy Trinity Parish.

Tom is predeceased by his loving wife of 54 years, Anne M. Castellone; his three daughters, Melaine, Kate, and Mary Fehrnstrom and her husband, Paul; his one son, Thomas M.  Castellone, and his wife, Rose Mary, as  well  as  six  deeply cherished  grandchildren,  Tara  and  Andrew Castellone, Grant Bode IV and Grace, Sarah and Jack  Fehrnstrom, and great-grandchild, Liam.  He also leaves his brother Anthony, and his wife Alberta, many nieces and nephews and many dear friends. 

The family would like to thank friends, neighbors, and the Westfield Rescue Squad, for  their  care and support  – it means more to us than you will ever know. He will be missed each and every day and we hope you hold a special memory of him in your heart.

Arrangements were under the direction of the Higgins and Bonner Echo  Lake  Funeral  Home,  582 Springfield Avenue in Westfield. In  lieu  of  flowers,  contributions to the Westfield Rescue Squad, 335 Watterson  Street,  Westfield,  N.J. 07091, would  be  greatly  appreciated.
