Obituary for Antonio "Tony" Trichilo

Antonio (Tony) Trichilo entered into Eternal Rest on Saturday, July 13, 2019. He was born on September 13, 1954 in Mirto, Siderno, Reggio Calabria, Italy, on such a stormy night that he often joked that without the light of the moon or a watch, it was difficult to know exactly which day he arrived into this world. Son of the late Michele and Caterina Trichilo, he joined his older siblings, Concetta Agostino (dec. Giorgio), Esterina Fragomeni (dec. Giuseppe), Carlo (Maria), (dec.) Cosimo (Aurora), Maria Valentino (Cosimo). He was later joined by Salvatore (dec.), Rosalba Zito (dec. Giuseppe), Silvana Crupi and Roberto. At 14, Tony began his life-long work as a car mechanic working for a local garage, where he learned a trade that would make him an asset, not only to his employers, but also to his family and friends. At 18, he was selected by the Italian Navy to work on an aircraft carrier as one of their chief engine machinists. Upon finishing his service to his country, he made up plans to move to the U.S. where he lived with his sister, Concetta and her husband, Giorgio. Needing to improve his English, he was tutored by his future wife, Mary E. Civale. In 1987, Tony and Mary were married in a Roman Catholic Service at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Meriden, CT. Settling in Enfield, CT, where Mary taught, they became members of the Holy Family Church and soon had two beautiful daughters, Rosaria Caterina and Isabella Maria. Tony was extremely proud of his intelligent, strong, young women. His "big one" and "little one" were the loves of his life. He taught them to be respectful, considerate, compassionate people. And a day didn't go by that he didn't hear from one or the other with whom he shared and laughed with on the phone. Tony will be sadly missed by all his family and friends who loved listening to his stories and benefitted from his sage advice. In addition to his beloved wife, daughters, and granddog, Brizzie, who will miss getting Dunkin Donut Munchkins and pieces of table food from his Grandpa, Tony is survived by his brother-in-law, Salvatore Civale (Lisa), his nephew, Adam, and numerous Canadian and Italian nieces and nephews, all who loved and respected his familial responsibility.

"On Angel's wings you were taken
But in our hearts you'll stay
And in God's light you will rest
Until we meet again someday."

Relatives and friends are invited to join the family for calling hours on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 from 4:00 - 7:00 pm at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd., Enfield, CT 06082.

Ciao , fratello caro.
Ho bisogno di scriverti queste poche parole oggi ; forse , mi sentirò meglio .
Sai , finito il mio lavoro in Reparto , sono scappato via per sedermi di fronte alla tua immagine , a questi fiori , e scrivere , e questo mi aiuta forse a credere che io possa ancora vederti e ascoltare la tua voce.
Molte volte , in questi giorni , mi sono reso conto che forse , è stato meglio che mi abbiano impedito l'accesso al volo , a Venezia , venire li per non trovarti ..
Quando penso ai lunghi discorsi che facevamo per telefono , mi rendo conto adesso che eri non solo un fratello adorato , ma anche un grande confidente amico , e un altro Padre a cui appoggiarsi dopo la morte di nostro Padre.
Se puoi , Tu che in vita hai aiutato tutti , aiutaci ancora , a sopportare il dolore.
Tuo fratello Roberto.

Ciao , fratello caro.
Volevo dirti alcune cose oggi , adesso che il dolore da spazio a un attimo di rassegnazione.
Avrei tante cose da dirti , e non so da dove iniziare.
Vorrei ringraziarti per quando ero piccolo e per la prima volta mi portasti al cinema .
Per quando ero piccolo e acquistati per me la prima bicicletta in uno dei tanti momenti difficili della famiglia.
Per quando mi dicesti che uno come me deve fare il Liceo Classico e mi aiutasti ad iscrivermi.
Per quando mi consigliasti di studiare a Bologna e mi aiutasti tanto nel seguire la mia strada , senza mai volere nulla in cambio.
Per avermi aiutato ad acquistare una casa e mettere su la mia famiglia .
Ringraziarti per tutta la mia vita , che io devo ai genitori per avermi messo al mondo , ma che devo a Te per tante , tante e tante cose , senza le quali , forse , oggi , non sarei ciò che sono.
E ti chiedo adesso perdono se quando chiedesti il mio aiuto , non ho potuto dartelo , e di questo mi sentirò sempre colpevole in fondo al cuore.
Adesso che scrivo queste poche parole , sento che non è vero che c'è un pò di rassegnazione in me a tutto questo , a questi maledetti giorni che sempre odierò con tutto me stesso , alleviati solo dalla Laurea di mio figlio , ma sento invece che starò bene solo un giorno , quando potremo sorridere di nuovo insieme , con Te , Mamma , e Papà.
