Anthony L. Leggiero, a lifelong resident of Dobbs Ferry, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 5, at age 81.
Known as “Algiers,” Anthony was born on Sept. 8, 1938 to Anthony and Elvira (Pomponio) Leggiero. He graduated from Dobbs Ferry schools, served in the U.S. Army from 1957-59, and worked as a letter carrier for the Dobbs Ferry Post Office for 34 years. For most of his career he delivered mail to Beacon Hill.
Anthony was quick-witted and caring. His hobbies included watching “Jeopardy” and classic movies, playing cards, lottery tickets, and mastering the daily crossword puzzle in The New York Times. His apartment was an epicenter for friends who stopped by, especially Brian Coffey and Scotty Shevlin.
Anthony is survived by his brother, Angelo Leggiero, and his sister, Gloria Conn, both of Dobbs Ferry, and by his nephews and niece Mark (Noreen) Leggiero, Keri (Angelo) DiLascio, Dean Leggiero, and their children. He is also survived by ex-wife Pat Clancy and daughter Laura. He was predeceased by beloved family members Clarence “Cabby” Eriksen and sister-in-law Patricia Leggiero.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
