Anthony “Tony” Maurello, beloved husband, father, uncle and brother, passed away peacefully on June 18, 2020, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was born in Sciacca, Sicily on September 24, 1963 and moved to the United States in 1966. He was the youngest of six children born to the late Giuseppe Maurello and Vita Giarratano.

Our most sincere condolences to the Maurello family. Rick and I both worked with Tony at the North End Post Office since 1995.
He was such a sweet man, loving father to his children & wonderful husband to his wife. He was a very hard worker, insuring to provide well for his family. I (Linda) & my son Tyler took some cooking classes with his wife Nina.... wonderful time, which led to his family to catering our son Tyler’s wedding❤️ Something that our family and friends talk about to this day, 15 years later, the most delicious food ever.
Tony, you are missed by all. Much love to you and your family....

My name is Paul P. Nelson. I worked with Tony for 23 years at the Northend Station. My birthday is March 4th and every March Tony will say "THAT'S MY FATHER -IN-LAW BIRTHDAY' and we will just make a laugh noise. Also when the children was little. I would dance with them at the union Christmas party. I will miss you my friend and the way you talked in your Italy language. Say hello to Jesus Christ and my parents and brothers and sister and my nephew for me. Until we meet again. Much Love Brother Tony.

Will always remember Tony and what a wonderful little boy he was. He always came over on Sunday to eat a few Meatballs. Sometimes we met at Bollingers. Can’t believe he is gone. I did speak to him about a week ago. He wanted My son George and I to keep an eye on his brother Vito. Little did I know that this would be the last time I would talk to him. Good bye Tony. Will make you meatballs & Raviolis if I make it to heaven. ❤️ you forever. Say hi to my Mom & Dad. Delphi 🤗😘

I remember the day our mother brought you home from Sciacca. You were so small, so fragile, like a beautiful, little doll. I remember how I carried you in my arms and how people thought you were mine. One of my fondest memories of you, was on the day of my wedding 50 years ago. You were my ring bearer. You were so handsome and proud dressed in your suit. You will always be my little brother and I will never stop loving you. Now, God has decided to have you in heaven with our Mom and Dad, grandpa Joe and grandma Rosa and our oldest brother Giovanni. Give all of them hugs. I will miss you and you will always be in my heart.
Love and Miss you Tony
Your sister Anna
brother in law Joe and all your nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews and great great nieces and nephews
