SAUGERTIES…. Anthony J. Missasi, 63, of Blue Mountain Church Rd. died Friday, January 6, 2023 at his residence. Born November 23, 1959 in Staten Island he was the son of the late Michael and Patt Tesoro Missasi. A graduate of Saugerties High School, class of 1978 .

He was a selfless man, always lending a helping hand and support to those who needed it. Anthony loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing with his son, Philip, golfing with his son-in-law, Billy. He was a member of the Tuesday Night Golf League at the Rip Van Winkle Country Club, but could most likely be seen at the course any day of the week trying to improve his game.
