Anthony Maroto Jr., 96, of Danbury, passed away peacefully at home with his family on Saturday, January 13, 2024. He was the husband of the late Florence (Dzubak) Maroto.
Anthony was born on February 16, 1927 in Danbury, Connecticut. A son of the late Victoria Corona Maroto and Antonio Maroto Sr., Anthony attended Danbury schools and graduated from Danbury High School and then served in the US Army, during WWII, deploying to Europe. He returned to Danbury following the war and married Florence Dzubak on May 12, 1951. Anthony and Florence built a life and family in Danbury, and remained happily married for 62 years until Florence passed away. Anthony held jobs as a bartender, a hatter and was the Pressroom Foreman at the News Times where he remained for over 25 years until he retired in 1988.
Anthony made family and friends the most important aspect of his life, ensuring he was always there for his children and grandchildren. He welcomed everyone with open arms and a perpetual smile. Anthony’s zest for life was contagious and his ability to enjoy the simple things made every moment with him memorable. He truly was a one-of-a-kind.
