In Honor of Anthony J. Munafo

Created by Ross Muken

Anthony J. Munafo

Help us honor Anthony J. Munafo, 71, of Bloomingdale, who passed away on Friday, July 27, 2018 at Hackensack University Medical Center, while making a difference in myeloma research.

Anthony will always be remembered as the most loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He had a good soul, and would do absolutely anything for anyone. Anthony loved nothing more than being with his family, sharing his love of gadgets and spy gear, his appreciation of history, or his knowledge and skill with mechanics and classic cars. He had a great sense of humor, and a cunning wit. He will be dearly missed.

Anthony is lovingly survived by his wife of 46 years, Rita; his sons, Adam and his girlfriend Erica, Christian and his wife Allison, and Sean and his wife Christine; his granddaughters, Sophie Ann and Gabrielle Ann; as well as his brothers-in-law and their wives, sister-in-law and many nieces and nephews.

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), along with its research and medical industry partners, has fueled more studies, initiated more trials, developed more treatments, introduced more medicines, and have had a far greater impact than any other organization on myeloma. While the MMRF has made enormous progress, they still have much to do and cannot continue to do great research without your support.

Please consider joining me to fight multiple myeloma. Together we can make a difference.

Our beloved father, grandfather and friend. My father was a great man that made the sun shine a lighter brighter each day he was with us, and the world will be worse off without his physical presence, but we find solace knowing his spiritual presence lives on within and around us. My father fought this disease valiantly, and we pray that the MMRF will continue making strides towards finding a vaccine and/or permanent cure to this terrible disease. We also pray for all that are afflicted with other types of cancer, that modern technology will prevail and find vaccines and/or permanent cures.

I first met Mr. Munafo nearly 20 years ago, and each and every time we came together, he would greet me with just the biggest smile, and a warm, comforting embrace. He was genuinely interested in my life, he remembered details I couldn't even recall sharing, and he was eager to laugh at my bad jokes. It wasn't because I was anything special. It was because Mr. Munafo was special, and made outsiders feel as welcome and cared for as his own. I will miss him deeply.
