Anthony "Tony" Corsetti, 80 and a longtime Groton resident, passed away peacefully on November 18, 2021. He was the beloved husband of Irene (Mason) Corsetti for 56 years.
Tony was born on August 9, 1941 in St. Angelo Cassino, Italy, a son of the late Vincenzo and Graziella (Palombo) Corsetti. He emigrated with his family to the United States in 1956 and honorably served in the Army National Guard. In 1965 he married Irene, the love of his life and began a love story that would span over 56 years. The couple lived in Woburn and eventually settled in Chelmsford where they raised their family. They moved to Groton in 1992 where they were active parishioners of Our Lady of Grace (St. James Church) and Tony was active in the Knights of Columbus. Tony was a talented barber by trade. He also enjoyed woodworking and was a gifted handyman. Tony was extremely outgoing and his smiling face and energetic conversations will be missed by many.
