The Mamaroneck community
has lost a great citizen and World War II veteran: Tony
Marsella died on August 6th. He was a supporter of
Kemper Memorial Park for many decades and a member of
the Board of Directors of the Kemper Memorial Park
Tony was arguably the human face of the fight to
preserve the Richard M. Kemper Memorial Park, as his
brother John perished in the War and is one of the 101
honorees on the memorial stone. Tony was able to spend
time in the Park
to grieve for his brother Pvt. John J. Marsella, US
Army, who was killed in action on the Anzio beachhead in
Italy on May 26, 1944. A graduate of Mamaroneck High
School, John was only 21 when he died and was awarded
the Purple Heart.
Tony's decades-long advocacy for the preservation of the
Park was tremendously effective. May he rest in peace
and may we who cared for him be comforted by fond
memories of him.

cakes and cookies, and a moment of respite and prayer provided
by thousands of volunteers from the surrounding communities.
