Deep in his faith, Antonio (Junie) P. Trebisacci, Jr., went home to the Lord on February 16, 2021, at the age of 85, surrounded by his loving family. A devout and faithful servant he spent his life dedicating his time to his family and others.

Born in Westerly, he was the son of the late Antonio P. Trebisacci, Sr., and Nellie Trebisacci. He was predeceased by his brothers Louis A., David, John Sr., Salvatore, and one sister Josephine (Trebisacci) Christina.

He lived a full and blessed life. Antonio was a 1953 graduate of Westerly High School. Upon graduation he went to work at the Westerly Sun for 53 years with a two-year break to serve in the U.S. Army. He also served four years in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. His customers at the Westerly Sun loved to see him come, they always knew they would get a corny joke. He was known by many and loved by all. The community loved to hear him on Pizza Lady commercials on WBLQ. He was an avid Red Sox fan and played softball as a pitcher for many years in the Men’s Softball League. He was a member of the Mt. Carmel Feast Committee for 62 years and a member of the Calabrese Club. Antonio gave so much of himself by volunteering at South County Community Action and also cooked and delivered many meals to those in need. He was particularly known for his sausage muffins and eggplant parmesan. McQuade's Marketplace will certainly miss his daily visits. He will be fondly remembered for his sense of humor and his famous odes.

He met the love of his life, Carolyn Cozzolino and made her his bride. They enjoyed 58 years together dancing, traveling, raising their family and sharing their faith at the Immaculate Conception Church. He also leaves his son Kenneth P. and wife Rebecca A., daughter Karen, and daughter Christine and husband Timothy Riordan; as well as his grandchildren, Luke and Giovanna Trebisacci, Brianna and Nate Klein, and Anastasica Riordan; many nieces and nephews; and life-long friends, and his faithful canine best friend Sally.

There will be no visiting hours. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Immaculate Conception Church, 111 High St., Westerly on Saturday, February 20, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome, there will be upstairs and downstairs seating. Masks must be worn and social distancing protocols followed. Due to COVID restrictions, burial will be private. A reception to celebrate his life and share stories will be held this summer.

In lieu of flowers donations are welcome to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Hospice Homecare in Antonio’s memory. Gaffney-Dolan Funeral Home, 59 Spruce St., Westerly is in care of the arrangements. For online condolences please visit

Although I had not seen him for a while, I came across a nice picture of Juni and his good friend Joe "Tut" Donohue and a couple friends of mine on a trip I took them on to Western Massachusetts about ten years ago. I called Juni about six months ago, or more, not knowing he was in such bad health and we had a nice conversation. He was always welcoming, and always in the best of humor. I was glad to have met him at the Calabrese, and through him Tut. Nice memories of good years. RIP.

Dear Carolyn & Family,

A larger than life personality is a "truly fitting" way to describe Tony, 'Junie', as he was known to so many. His outstanding community spirit radiated to Family, his unlimited number of Friends and beyond!! Our sincere condolences and prayers on his passing.

Sincerely, Nick Jr. & Barbara Bottone

Tony made a profound difference in my life. He was such a kind person and always made me feel welcome. He loved and was beloved by so many people. I enjoyed his corny jokes and delicious eggplant parmesan, too. Because of him, I will always carry an extra scapular to give away. Patti Logan

Carolyn & family,

Our deepest and sincere sympathies towards your beloved husband & father; along with everyone else, he will sorely be missed by Linda, myself & our family.

"TT" took me under his wing when I began @ The Sun in 1986; from there on in, we forged a long-lasting friendship in and out of the workplace. Several times he & Carolyn attended our Christmas parties as well as summer cook-outs; they mixed in perfectly w/everyone in attendance - Tony even wrote one of his hilarious odes to my wife Linda as he & Carolyn attended my wife's 40th BD party @ - where else? - The Calabrese Club. The other guests, who were unfamiliar w/him and his "readings" were treated to his immense talent and the bear hug of his friendship towards Linda, myself & family. Once you met him, you were a friend for life.

He stopped by in early September to our home for a brief visit. Per usual, he had his "Italian Gold" (a stick of his home-made soupy) in hand. In retrospect, sadly it was the last time that I got to see him in person. But, along with everyone else, I have nothing but fond memories of this very dear man.

Good-bye, Mr. Bond.

Steve, Linda Hebert & family
