Antonino “Tony” Pafumi, 85, passed away Saturday (November 16, 2019) at Morristown Memorial Hospital. Born in Motta Camastra, Sicily, he and his late wife, Giovannina, came to the United States in 1956 and settled in Westfield.

Tony Pafumi, hardworking, smart, a perfectionist when it came to his work, at times stubborn, enjoyed his garden and loved beyond words his beautiful wife and adored his ever growing family. To have Tony as a friend was a life time allegiance and I was honored to be able to call him my friend. May God Bless You My Friend Rest In Peace
