Below are the details of his obituary, and he was given a hero’s sendoff for his many years of service to his home community of Woodbury, NY.

Anthony J. “Tony” Maggio
May 8, 1960 – January 28, 2021
Central Valley, NY
Anthony J. “Tony” Maggio passed away on Thursday, January 28, 2021 at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, PA. He was 60 years old. Son of the late Anthony and Antoinette Zambrotta Maggio, Tony was born on May 8, 1960 in New York, NY.
Tony was a Police Officer for NYPD 19th Precinct in New York, NY. He was a member of The Fraternal Order of Police in Monroe, NY, Woodbury Community Association, Woodbury Community Ambulance and worked EMS for Columbia Presbyterian and New City Ambulance.
Tony was raised in a loving home in Ridgewood, NY. He began his lifelong service to others at the age of 17. In his 43 years of service, he has held new life, saved lives, restored order, reached out to help a colleague, gentled the passing for those at the end of life and taught skills to new EMTs.
Tony was a wine, golf, Mets, NY Giants, Dad jokes enthusiast. He loved dogs of all – with a soft spot for Wheaties and a devoted friend of the birds (squirrels) at his bird feeders. He also had an unhealthy obsession with the amount of golf balls a golfer should have. Most loved were the times spent with his family, friends and treasured “framily”.
Deepest thanks go to Tony’s other “families”: NYPD 19th precinct, Ridgewood Volunteer Ambulance, Woodbury Community Ambulance, New City Ambulance, Misericordia Hospital and Columbia Presbyterian for being his partners in his work/volunteer journey.
The community of Woodbury, that we have been blessed to be a part of for the past 22 years, thank you for the camaraderie, laughter, and tight circle of support.
Survivors include his wife of 34 years, Tracy E. Maggio at home; son, Andrew Maggio of Albany, NY; sister, Jo-Ann Maggio of Queens, NY; and by many nieces, nephews, cousins and loved ones. Tony will truly be missed by all.
