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 Preservation Fund.
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
