Anthony D. Mingione

Anthony "Tony" D. Mingione, 65 of Charleston, SC, passed away on Wednesday, March 22, 2023. 

Born on March 4, 1958, in Long Island City, NY, he was a son of Santia Pagan Mingione and the late Andrea Mingione. 

After growing up in New York, Tony moved to San Diego, where he met his loving wife, Lynn. They later moved to Charleston and welcomed their cherished daughter, Eva. Tony was known for his irreverent sense of humor, such as assigning people funny nicknames and his appreciation for slapstick comedy. He was an avid football and horseracing fan. In his younger years, he was a regular bicyclist for work and pleasure and his favorite outdoor locale was the desert. Tony was a serious audiophile, with an extensive collection of albums on vinyl. He enjoyed live concerts, particularly progressive rock artists, such as Peter Gabriel and King Crimson. His family will remember him as supporting them with loving acts of service and devotion. 

Besides his father, Tony is preceded in death by his beloved pets: Zippity, Rudy, and especially, Baxter.

Tony is survived by his wife, Lynn Wener; daughter, Emily "Eva" Mingione; his mother, Santia Mingione and his sister, Lynn Mingione.
