Tony and I have been good friends since our kindergarten days at Main St. School in Warren, RI. He never forgot his friends and loved his family. Tony and i attended the Bristol July 4th parade for many years. He was a patriot who loved his country. Tony was a good businessman and organized many community events. He started the Warren Quohaug Festival which has been a popular family summer celebration to the present. His WHS 1963 classmates were dear to him, and he attended all the reunions. Tony was very generous with his time and donations. He and his family printed all our reunion invitations and tickets at their expense. Tony had a great sense of humor and could good light up a room with his smile and story telling. I had spoken with him recently, and he was his positive self and concerned about others health. Tony gave me a helping hand during a rough spot in my life. I will always remember his kindness. He was a fighter and never gave up on life. God Bless Tony Carbone and his family!
A very kind man, always willing to help my aging mother at Winslow Gardens with her cell phone. We spoke on several occasions and we knew many of the same Barrington residents. I always looked for him when I visit. Sorry for your loss.

I am sorry to hear of Tony’s passing; my aunt Anne Malafronte Collamore brought him up for many years, and I remember seeing him as a little boy at my Great-grandmother Collamore’s house. In later years I often took work to his Warren printing office.
Marty and I now live in Connecticut, where we are close to our son and his family. Please accept my condolences.
Tony was a wonderful man. I had the pleasure of working for him one summer and I will always think of him as the kindest man I ever worked for. More recently, my husband and I often spoke with him at Winslow Gardens events when we visited a family member. at Linn Health Care. Our condolences to the family.
So sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. We were both graduates of Warren High School and for the last 5 years or so met with other class of ’63 alumni for lunch once a month.
