Westminster, CO – Anthony Robert Micucci, 33, formerly of Saugerties, NY, passed away at home on Sunday, January 29, 2023. Anthony was born on January 30, 1989 in Hudson, NY to Jane Micucci and the late Richard Micucci.
Anthony graduated from Saugerties High School in 2007. After high school, Anthony gained a great deal of experience in food and beverage. He honed his cooking and food preparation skills in a number of kitchens including his own. Upon moving to Denver, CO in 2014, Anthony attended Front Range Community College where he pursued one of his passions as he successfully completed a degree in Forestry Technology. Anthony also completed a plumbing apprenticeship and used what he learned, as well as his self-education, to successfully move forward in the field.
Anthony was a gentle and compassionate soul. He loved animals and spent many years later in life fostering and caring for senior dogs. Anthony also had a gift for expressing himself creatively. He enjoyed drawing, painting, and writing. Over recent years, he was sharpening his guitar-playing skills, as well. Anthony also loved the outdoors since he could walk. He enjoyed camping at North/South Lake with his friends and family throughout his childhood and adolescence. He spent much of his time kayaking, rock climbing, slacklining, hiking, and simply being in nature where he found the most peace. Anthony never missed an opportunity to explore the Catskill and Rocky Mountain regions and many others in between. He loved attending music festivals with his friends to include several years of Mountain Jam, as well as many Avett Brothers concerts.
Anthony combined his love for the outdoors and his keen landscaping skills when he founded Wilbur and Sons in 2017. Anthony was an expert in landscape installation, lawn care, handyman services, plumbing and irrigation, tile installation, and gutter work. He built his business from the ground up and was well-known and respected for the services he provided Denver and its surrounding areas. Anthony’s meticulous nature contributed greatly to his professional success.
Anthony was predeceased by his father and best friend, Richard (Wilbur), in 2015. Anthony leaves behind his loving wife, Shayna. In addition to his beloved mother, Jane, Anthony is survived by two sisters that thought the world of him, Anna of Saugerties and Angela (Frank) Danielsen of Watertown, NY, as well as his dear cousin Nicole (Brandon) Becker of Ft. Lauderdale, FL and several other aunts, uncles and cousins. Anthony also leaves behind one of his favorite people, his godson who he loved so much, CJ Shocklee.
In addition to Anthony’s immediate family, he leaves a void in the group of friends that were very much his family. Anthony maintained the same close-knit group of friends from kindergarten on. Anthony spent his childhood, adolescence, and adulthood making memories (and stirring up trouble) with his friends, his second family, whom Jane considered her bonus sons, and Anna and Angela considered their brothers. Anthony and his friends spent much of their youth and teenage years at the Micucci household building tree forts, playing hacky sack, filming “Jackass” stunts, playing Grand Theft Auto and World of Warcraft, and so much more. In early adulthood, they graduated to composing various kinds of music (shout out to “Borderline Bunk”). These relationships carried well into adulthood and Anthony never lost touch with those he considered his brothers. The bonds (and inside jokes) that Anthony had with his friends were incredibly unique and everlasting. So much of who Anthony was as a person can be attributed to his amazing and loyal friends that he loved and valued deeply. They shared so much over the years and the Micucci family is eternally grateful for the love and support Anthony had in his cherished friend group.
His Service of Remembrance will be held 3:30 PM Saturday February 18, 2023 at the Seamon-Wilsey Funeral Home, 45 John St., Saugerties, NY. Friends will be received Saturday, February 18th from 1PM-3:30 PM. Family suggests donations in Anthony’s Memory be made to the Town of Saugerties Animal Shelter, 1765 Rte.212, Saugerties, NY 12477.
