Born & raised in East Boston, he was a 1956 alumnus of Boston Trade School for Boys in Boston. Although, he majored in carpentry during his high school training, he really never used his gift of skill in his life work. The family long-held ownership & full operation of Frank’s Market (Corner of Trenton St. & Prescott St.) in East Boston, where “Tony” would spend most of his working career as an expert meat cutter. The family enjoyed a consistent reputation for quality, professionalism and cleanliness at their market. After the passing of Uncle Jerry, Uncle Lou, Grampa & Uncle Frank (Tony’s Dad), the family decided to sell the business. However, again, Tony took some well deserved vacation time & then began to get bored, so a return to work was decided. He worked for several markets along the way, and then spent about 8 years with MacKinnon’s Markets. He finally retired at age 70. He suffered the loss of his wife Joan F. (Dantona) Viscione on April 4, 1990 to metastatic endometrial carcinoma. He mourned her intensely until God sent him an angel, namely, Susan M. Huuskonen for the past 23 years. Susan has had a special place to occupy in Tony’s life and that of his three daughters.

He is the cherished father of Andrea Zecha, Rosemarie Villani & her husband, Michael & Janet O’Connor & her husband Thomas, all of West Peabody. He is also the cherished Grandfather of Alysse Zecha & her fiancee, Kyle Schneider of Weehawken, New Jersey, Joanna F. Zecha of Somerville, Steven A. Villani, John R. Villani, Olivia J. O’Connor & Matthew S. O’Connor all of West Peabody. He is the dear brother to Rosalie T. Gillis of Winthrop. He is also lovingly survived by his faithful long-time companion, Susan M.

    When I was a little girl, we lived on East Eagle Street. Frank’s Market was on one side of the Sheridan School and we lived on the other side. Every morning, our mother gave us a dime to buy dessert for our school lunches. I would go into what we called ‘Lou’s Market’ and I would buy Yankee Doodles – because you got 3 cupcakes instead of 2!! Then my dad got sick and my mother didn’t always have money for such extravagances. Lou would let her run a tab – and took whatever payment she could make. She often talked about how grateful she was for their kindness. Please accept my condolences on behalf of my entire family.
