It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a remarkable man who touched the lives of everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. Anthony J Maturo, passed away at the young age of 45, on April 23rd, after an intense battle with a rare cancer.

Born on January 9th, to Anthony (Tony) F Maturo and Cathy B Maturo, Anthony grew up alongside his twin sister Kelly M Edens in Orange, CT on the infamous Pardee Manor Rd.  From an early age, he demonstrated an incredible passion for life and a deep commitment to making a positive impact on the world around him. Whether it was through his work, his many hobbies, or simply his interactions with others, Anthony radiated kindness, compassion, and a zest for life.

After completing his education at University of New Mexico, Anthony went on to pursue a career in banking. He quickly established himself as a leader in his industry, earning the respect and admiration of his colleagues and clients alike. Anthony always had a smile on his face and a positive attitude with an intensity that earned him the nickname Turbo.  He was a true inspiration to all who knew him, and his determination and strength of character will always be remembered.

Anthony never lost sight of what truly mattered in life: his family.  In 2003, Anthony met the love of his life, Lesley, and together they embarked on a journey of love and partnership that lasted for 16 blissful years. They were blessed with two beautiful children, Joseph (16) and Jacqueline (13), who were the light of Anthony’s life. He cherished every moment spent with his family, whether it was attending sporting events for both the kids or an adventure-filled trip to ski, bike, or hike.  Anthony was a free spirit especially when he was skiing, the love for the sport brought a tremendous amount of joy to him.

Anthony’s passing leaves a void in the hearts of all who knew him, his memory will continue to inspire and uplift us. We will always remember his kind and generous heart, his infectious smile, and his unwavering courage in the face of adversity.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Anthony’s parents, Tony and Cathy, his twin sister Kelly, his wife Lesley, and their children Joey and Jacquie. May they find comfort in the knowledge that Anthony lived a life filled with purpose and love, and that his impact will continue to be felt for generations to come.


  • My sincerest condolences to Ant’s family during this wry difficult time. I especially pray that God gives Lesley, Joseph and Jacqueline the strength to cope with the loss of a wonderful ma, husband and father everyday. 🙏

    I had the absolute pleasure of working on the same team as Anthony. He literally always had me smiling and laughing. He made work a breeze, but what I loved most about him was his constant laughter and smile. I will miss him dearly but find comfort that he is in Heaven.

  • Where do I begin. When Naif told me we were meeting up with and old dear friend from ASU and his future bride I had no idea the amazing ride we would be in for! You two had so much love and we were lucky enough to witness it at your wedding! From there our boys were born and had playdates! Our husbands were the best of friends and now they are together continuing their wild adventures. Kojahs are praying for you all and love you to pieces!

  • Lesley, Joseph and Jacqueline, my deepest sympathies to you. I had the pleasure of working with Anthony for a replacement relatively brief time. Though I didn’t work very closely with him, his energy and enthusiasm were felt by everyone on the floor. He was affectionately known as “energizer bunny”. I pray that the Lord will comfort and provide for you in your grieving.

His body is whole now.
