It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Antonino "Tony" Fazio on Sunday, May 1st, 2022, 82, with his family by his side in the comfort of his home. Tony was born to Tindaro and Maria Foti Fazio in the Oliveri Province of Messina, Sicily, Italy in the year of 1939. Tony, a mason by trade, received a merit award in 1960 for being an outstanding apprentice of masonry. This earned him the opportunity to go on to compete in Washington DC at the 12th Annual National Bricklayer Apprentice Contest, in which he placed 10th out of the nation's 38 best. As a result of his achievements, he had the honor of meeting President Eisenhower. Shortly after, he ended up becoming a master mason who went on to own his own construction company, Fazio Masonry Corp, with his two sons, Anthony Tindaro Fazio and Marcello Joseph Fazio. As a family, they completed many outstanding projects. A few notable projects consisted of The Skidmore College, Tang Art Museum, Saratoga National Racing Museum, The Fort Orange Club, and the Albany International Airport parking garage, where the Eastern New York Chapter American Concrete Institute Annual Award was given in recognition of excellence in conception, originality, and applicability of concrete in both design and construction. Although Tony retired in 2006, he still remained around the trade by becoming a watchful eye over his two sons, providing continued knowledge and a helping hand when needed. Tony enjoyed soccer, hunting, fishing, traveling, and making homemade wine annually with his family. Tony leaves his wife Mary Martha Sidoti and their sons Anthony T. Fazio (Ornella) Marcello J.
