Anthony (Tony) W. DiMeno of Upper Burrell Township, formerly of Freeport, passed away Tuesday, May 16, 2023 in Canterbury Place, Pittsburgh. He was born on March 22, 1925, in Freeport, to the late William and Rose (Caggiano) DiMeno. While he was in high school, Anthony was called up to serve during WWII. He joined the Navy and proudly served in the South Pacific as a Navy Signalman on an LST. Anthony worked as an insurance salesman for Metropolitan Life for many years and then served as Director of Veterans Affairs of Armstrong County helping veterans get the benefits they so deserve. Anthony was a lifelong member of St. Mary Mother of God Church in Freeport. He enjoyed home remodeling, making wine, traveling, cooking, baking, gardening, reading, and solving crossword puzzles. He especially enjoyed family get togethers. He is survived by two sons, Daniel (Monica) DiMeno of Upper Burrell Township, David DiMeno of LaQuinta, California and his daughter, Dana Chiesa of Freeport, six grandchildren, three great grandchildren and two great, great grandchildren as well as many beloved nieces and nephews.
