Antonio Lorusso. Antonio was born in Italy about the 5th of September, 1905, son of Nicola and Antonietta (Pelligrino) Lorusso.

Antonio (commonly called Anthony or Tony in this country) was a laborer in Worcester, Massachusetts, when he took Loretta Curran for his bride on the 26th of April, 1930. The couple was married by Antonio Sannella.[1] Sometime after the birth of their children, Tony and Loretta were divorced.

Loretta, daughter of Patrick and Mary (Griffin) Curran, died at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Georgia and Shirley Sear in Falmouth, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, on the 28th of May 1960, at the age of 55. She was interred at St. John’s Cemetery in Worcester.[2]

At the time of our marriage, 1963, Antonio and his second wife, Mary Yagjian, resided in Upton, Worcester County, Massachusetts, where they operated a metal manufacturing shop. While in Upton, they built first one home which they sold and then built another on property adjacent to the first on Matunick Beach in Rhode Island. When they retired from the metal business, they sold their New England properties and moved to Fort Pierce, Florida, where they lived until they passed.
