Anthony Louis Vignola “ Tony” of Mountainside, beloved husband, father and grandfather peacefully passed away on Thursday, February 29, 2024.

Tony was born to Louis and Emily Vignola on November 11, 1932 in Bronx, NY. He was the younger brother of Francis Vignola who predeceased him in 2023, He and Frank were very close throughout their lives from friends to business partners. Our family is finding comfort in knowing that they are once again reunited in heaven.

Tony had a lifelong career with Generals Motors in the New York City office and was also co-owner of a local restaurant in Rahway with his brother Frank for many years . Anthony retired from General Motors in 2000 after 50 years in their executive offices.

Tony was a lifelong resident of Mountainside and spent his summers living on his boat with his family at Wehrlen Brothers Marina in Brick. He was devoted to and found joy in spending time with family, whether it was at home, on his boat or vacationing. Good food was always a must.

He was a proud US Army veteran, serving in the Korean War. "Love of Country" and "Proud to Be An American" were his mottos!
