Anthony Mario Tarullo
Age 92, passed peacefully Tuesday September 21, 2021 with his beloved wife of 65 years, Marianne (Belo) Tarullo by his side. Tony was born in Villetta Barrea, Italy, to the late Maria (Masciola) and Flamminio. He grew up in Coraopolis and enjoyed the rest of his life living in Sheraden amongst many friends and family. He proudly served the US Army during the Korean War, stationed in Germany. After returning home, he met the love of his life at West View Danceland. Soon after marrying Marianne, Tony joined his father in the masonry contracting business, which developed into general contracting under his leadership for 55 years. Tony loved to work, having built many familiar buildings in the Pittsburgh region such as Bell Telephone buildings, dormitories, churches, schools, shopping centers, car dealerships and many important agricultural and industrial facilities. He worked until the age of 84, only retiring when Marianne asked him to.
Tony leaves his four adoring children: Sundi Stein (late George), David (Lisa), Judy Vose (Andrew), and Karen, who all thrived under his caring attention.
Tony was the eldest of the family of three sisters who all lived within a mile from each other: Anna Swisher, Delphine Clemens, and the late Leonilde. He will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews.
He has been the dearest “Pappa” to five granddaughters, Christine Tarullo, Julianne Tarullo-Pinell (Blake), Diana Vose-Rupprecht (Jeffrey), Lauren Vose and Jeana Vose, who have felt the security of his indelible love. He delighted in his great grandson, Ryan Rupprecht, before leaving this world.
Tony enjoyed motorcycling in his youth, a game of poker with friends, hunting, the outdoors and traveling with Marianne around this wonderous world. But most of all, Tony enjoyed time spent with people, be they strangers, good friends or family. He was always the witty one, sharing his dry sense of humor to lighten the moment with all people.
Family and friends will be received on Saturday 6-8 and Sunday 2-4 and 6–8 pm at the William F. Conroy Funeral Home, 2944 Chartiers Avenue, Sheraden. MASKS REQUIRED. Funeral mass in Ascension Church of St. Philip Parish, 114 Berry St., Pgh 15205 on Monday at 10 am, followed by the burial at Resurrection Cemetery in Coraopolis.
