Former Stamford Rep Remembered After Passing Away Due To Complications From COVID-19 - Stamford Moms

Mayor David Martin today announced former Board of Representative member Anthony “Tony” Spadaccini died in the early morning of March 25th due to complications from the corona virus (COVID-19). Spadaccini is the first Stamford resident to die from the coronavirus. Mayor Martin issued the following statement:

“It is with great sadness I share with Stamford the first death of one of our own. In Tony Spadaccini, Stamford has lost a father, a husband, a civil servant, and an irreplaceable member of our community. Many may know Tony for his service to our City as a member of the Board of Representatives, where he made a memorable contribution in the short time he was on the board. More than any one accomplishment, Tony was a person who made Stamford better. He was a supporter at Stamford High football games, a loving father to his two sons, and an individual who invested his time to make our community better. My condolences to his family and everyone affected by his death.

As COVID-19 continues to transform our day-to-day, we should remember we have the ability to lessen this virus’ impact on our community. Residents should do everything they can to stay home, practice social distancing, wash your hands, and take this public health emergency seriously. I believe most people in Stamford are taking this seriously, but this death should be a wake-up call for those who are not.”

Additionally, Board of Representatives Minority Leader Mary Lisa Fedeli shared the following statement:

“Tony’s contribution to the community especially to the youth of Stamford was astounding — he was so giving of his time and talents, he sorely missed by the community and our hearts go out to his wife Stefanie and his two sons.”
