Survived by his wife of 63 years, Rosetta (Corsentino) Pecoraro; two sons and daughters-in-law, Chuck (Judy) and John (Sarah) Pecoraro;  eight grandchildren, Paige, Claire, Grace, Annie Dylan, Livia, Ava, Enzo, and Primo Pecoraro; three siblings, Joseph Pecoraro, Virginia (Homer) Pruett, and Jack (Sally) Pecoraro; as well as his many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.

Tony was born in Pueblo, Colo. on March 20th, 1933. After graduating from Pueblo Central High School in 1952, he enlisted in the Navy where he served for four years. He then attended Southern Colorado State College in Pueblo where he got his B.A. followed by a Master’s degree from Adams State College in Alamosa.

Tony taught at Heaton Middle School before becoming an administrator in special education for District 60 for many years. He loved what he did and had many stories to show for it.

He loved playing cards, riding his bike, traveling with friends, attending activities for his grandkids, meeting his buddies at the donut shop, and watching his “cowboy shows.” He will be dearly missed by those who loved him here on earth, but we have comfort in knowing he is at peace in Heaven with his parents and friends Eddie, Jim, and Gary.
