Anthony  Mineo
Anthony "Tony" Mineo, 75, of Sharon, passed away under hospice care on Friday morning, Oct. 18, 2019, in his residence.
Mr. Mineo was born July 28, 1944, in Farrell, a son of the late Joseph and Grace (Tataseo) Mineo. He was a 1962 graduate of Farrell High School and earned his associates degree in family development from Penn State University.
Tony was employed as a millwright at Sharon Steel's former Farrell plant for 27 years. An entrepreneur, he started many businesses throughout his career and was a well-known landlord in the Shenango Valley.
Tony was active in the community and served as a wraparound for troubled youth and as a swimming instructor at Sharon High School. He was also a volunteer at the Buhl Community Recreation Center in Sharon, where he was a member for many years.
Tony loved boating and enjoyed many summers on Conneaut Lake. He was a good man who made friends easily and would give you the shirt off his back if needed.
He is survived by his wife of 48 years, the former Judith Babinka, whom he met at Conneaut Lake and married on Sept. 11, 1971; three children, Anthony Joseph "AJ" Mineo and his wife Jennifer, of Chardon, Ohio; Leah M. McMahon and her husband Shamus, of Valley City, Ohio; and Noah M. Mineo and his wife Zimin "Z," of Barrington, Ill.; seven grandchildren, whom he adored, Michael and Max Mineo; Meara and Maisie McMahon; and Lillie, Marco and Mei Mineo; brother-in-law, Michael "Mickey" Babinka, of Branden, Fla.; several nieces and nephews; the Christoff family; and a lifelong friend, who was like a brother, Mike "Mouse" Matusick and his wife Jane, of Hermitage.
Besides his parents, Tony was preceded in death by three sisters, Caroline Mineo, Mary Ann Wiesen (Jerry) and Jean Ann Mineo.
While Tony passed Friday morning, he is likely delayed on his way to his final destination, shirtless, shooting the bull with everyone from here to wherever.
Undoubtedly, on whatever road he might be traveling and whoever he meets, all roads lead to Farrell.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be directed to the Buhl Community Recreation Center, 28 Pine St., Sharon, 16146.

Anthony, 75, of Sharon.
Calling hours: 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday (10-22-19) in J. BRADLEY MCGONIGLE FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORY, INC., 1090 E. State St., Sharon.
