OBITUARY

Anthony Peter Colasurdo

November 14, 1950July 12, 2018

Anthony P. Colasurdo, beloved father, husband, brother, and uncle, passed away Thursday, July 12th, 2018 at the age of 67, surrounded by loved ones.

Born in Jersey City, NJ in 1950 to parents Ralph Colasurdo and Filomena Strocchio, he went on to attend St. Peter’s Prep and St. Peter’s College before pursuing a career in education spanning four decades, as both teacher and administrator, in Weehawken, NJ. He held a Master of Arts in Reading and a Master of Arts in Administration from New Jersey City University.

He was truly one of a kind: an influential coach, teacher, and mentor to thousands of students in the classrooms and baseball diamonds of Weehawken Schools; a gifted musician, singer, and performer who personified rock & roll; and most importantly a man of the highest character, who approached life with humor, charm, integrity, and an ever-present smile on his face.

He is survived by wife Pamela, three sons Anthony, Nicholas, and Christopher, brother Ralph, sister-in-law Jane, niece Jillian, extended family, and many loving friends.

In lieu of flowers, the Colasurdo family and Weehawken Schools will be accepting donations to a scholarship fund in his name, to support Weehawken students in pursuit of higher education. Donations can be made on The Anthony P. Colasurdo Memorial Scholarship GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/anthony-colasurdo

A Celebration of Life visitation will be held on Wednesday, July 18th from 5-9pm at Mack Memorial Home, 1245 Paterson Plank Rd., in Secaucus, NJ.

My deepest condolences to the Colasurdo family. I first met Tony at WHS when I taught special education from 1995-2000. My first home room class was in his classroom. Pam, I was impressed how he would say that when he first met you, you reminded him of Annie Hall. Later on I joined the Child Study Team & Tony was my principal at DWS. We had some adversarial times but I always knew that Tony was a good guy & had the children’s best interest at heart. I will never forget how he helped me with my computer skills allowing me to use his expertise in creating the WHS performing arts playbills. He will be missed! I’m so sorry I cannot attend the visitation. I live in Pennsylvania now & have to be at work very early in the morning. Love to all❤️

Hi Ralph, I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your brother. Its been a long time that I had seen or talked to him but I remember he was very kind and I enjoyed playing softball with him. I will try to make the viewing but if I don't please know that he is in a better place and will never be forgotten.

God bless..
