Tony Melucci

Dear Friends: It is with great sadness that I advise of the passing of Antonio Francis Melucci on July 9th 2019, peacefully at his home in Spring Hill Florida. Throughout the racing pigeon world he was known as “Tony Melucci”.

I knew Tony well, he was loved by all who knew him. He was recognized as America’s racing pigeon “Ambassador”. He was generous ,kind hearted, committed with a positive personality and patience for all. Tony was enormously successful

In our sport and knew everyone of consequence on virtually every continent. The sport worldwide will miss him, I will miss him. My sincerest condolences go out to his beloved wife Christiane, his four sons and all of his grandchildren

Tony’s passing is an enormous lose to his loving family and a huge, huge lose to the sport that he loved so much.

He was loved by hundreds of friends around the world.

He was often referred to as the “Chairman of the Board” because Tony had through words and actions earned the “respect” of us all!

We will miss you Tony but you will never be forgotten.

Best Regards

Big Andy
