D'Andrea Bros. Funeral Home

99 Oak Street, Copiague, NY


Anthony A. Mentesana Jr.

June 30, 1956August 30, 2019

It is difficult to encapsulate someone's entire life into a few words. Anthony was a dedicated son, brother, cousin and friend. In each of these relationships Anthony was always himself. Said differently, you knew what you got with Anthony, he was authentic and had a big heart that could be felt in every interaction. He also possessed an indelible charm in these interactions and in all that he did. His charm was his ability to always bring a child-like enthusiasm to life that upon reflection was his greatest attribute.

As we get older we harden this lens while Anthony embraced it and never let it go. From his enormous baseball card collection, his passion for slot cars, his love of the trans-am...to all his countless projects. Anthony always looked for the positive in every opportunity and it is this positivity that we should remember Anthony for and do our best to emulate more in our day to day lives.

Family and friends will gather at the funeral home on Sunday, September 1st, from 2:00 - 4:30 and 7:00 - 9:30 p.m. On Tuesday, September 3rd, Morning Prayers will be offered at 10:00 a.m. at the funeral home, and the procession will depart shortly thereafter for St. Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale. In lieu of flowers, remembrances in Anthony's name to the North Shore Animal League is lovingly appreciated.

It is difficult to describe the empty feeling in my heart for this larger than life friend.
The protector.
We met it elementary school , became friends and remained close friends.
The baseball, bicycle riding, football, boating and slot cars.
Going crabbing on a summers morning or sitting on the Jetty at the end of the block just fishing.
As we got older, the cars, my Challenger and your Road Runner.
May God welcome you into his Kingdom.
My family and I will never forget you.
Love you my brother.
