Mr. Ignazio (Tony) Raspanti of 49th Street passed to the next life yesterday, surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife and their three children, and grandchildren. The funeral is at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church on Tuesday September 4th, 2007 (44th and 30th). Tony was an Astoria institution. Words fail me today. If you would like to pay your respects, please check with the priest at St. Joseph's regarding the family's wishes.
