Anthony J. Branda

January 8, 1936 ~ May 27, 2021 (age 85)


Anthony J. Branda, 85, of Williamstown, formerly of Philadelphia, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, May 27, 2021.

Tony was a proud Marine and Veteran. He was a hardworking Union Glazier for Philadelphia Local 252 before retiring in 1994.  In his early retirement he enjoyed golfing. He was an avid Philadelphia sports fan, especially enjoyed watching a good Phillies game. You could always find “Tony” either sitting in his recliner, doing his daily crossword puzzle, watching Fox News or tinkering around in his yard. He was a proud and very humble man, who enjoyed telling old Marine stories to whoever would listen. His most favorite pastime of all was the time he spent with his grandchildren and his daily morning coffee with his son, A.J.

Beloved husband of the late MaryAnn Branda. Devoted father of Donna (Gerald) Waddell, Anthony (Rosemarie) Branda II, Louis (Doris) Branda and Marianne (Bobby) Barteld. Dear Brother of Concetta (late Anthony) Monzo, Frances (late Helen) Branda, Carlo (Arlene) Branda, Marie (Stephen) Freiman, the late John (the late Bertha) Branda, late Louis (the late Betty) Branda, the late Raymond (Tina) Branda and the late Elizabeth DiOrio.  Adoring Pop-Pop of Jeremy (Kiran) Waddell, Giana Branda, Talia Branda, Anthony Branda III, Amanda Branda, Adrian Barteld and Nico Barteld. Loving uncle to many nieces and nephews.
