Anthony “Tony” J. Astolfi, 64, of Dickson City, died Wednesday October 28,
2015 at Regional Hospital of Scranton after being stricken ill at home. He
is survived by his wife the former Elaine Mazur. They had been married 34
years.

Born in Scranton and raised in Taylor and Olyphant, he was the son of the
late Anthony and Anna Guzzi Astolfi and he was a member of St. Mary’s
Visitation Church, Dickson City.  He was a 1969 graduate of Olyphant High
School and earned a bachelor’s degree in applied science from The
Pennsylvania State University. He later became certified in medical sales.

Prior to his retirement two months ago, he was unit manager with Proctor &
Gamble for 23 years, a regional manager for Go Joe Industries for six years
and director of business development at Attends Healthcare Products, Inc.,
Ohio (formerly Paperpak) for 12 years. Most recently, he was employed by
Domtar Personal Care, Greenville, NC.

He loved skiing, rooting for Penn State football, good cigars and luxury
cars, including his Porsche. “Uncle Tony” had a wonderfully dry sense of
humor, and when he laughed, his whole body fell into the laugh.

He was a devoted husband, and as he spoke about Elaine, others could feel
his unwavering love. The couple shared a unique bond and were each other’s
best friend. A life filled with travel, theatre and culinary experiences
would have meant nothing if they did not share it together.

As an uncle and godfather, he was always an ever-present partner in
discovery and the biggest fans of his nieces and nephews. To his
brothers-in-law, he felt like an old friend and was a cherished golf buddy
and sports conversationalist. His sisters-in-law regarded him as a
confidant and dependable brother figure.

Tony and his wife were the proud hosts of family gatherings, where he loved
to curate menus that showed his sense of adventure. He was the gentle and
level-headed, unsung hero of the family.

Surviving are brothers and sisters in law, Frank J. Mazur and wife Cathy,
Steve Mazur and wife Doreen, and Tom Mazur and wife Donna all of Dickson
City; nieces and nephews who were more like children, Frank T. Mazur ll and wife Lisa, Dickson City,
Gary, Philadelphia, Alicia Mazur and Ryan Srebro, Alannah, Gia, Azure Dee, Krista Marie, and Kailee Mazur all of Dickson City; five great
niece and nephews, Gwennyth, Frank T. III, identical twins Roman and Isaac
Mazur, and Damon Srebro; aunts, uncles and cousins.

The funeral will be Tuesday at 9 a.m. from the Frank T. Mazur Funeral Home,
Inc. 601 Dundaff St., Dickson City, with mass at 9:30 a.m. in St. Mary’s
Visitation Church, Dickson City.  Interment, St. Mary’s Cemetery, Dickson
City.

Friends may call Monday 4 to 8 p.m.  For directions or to leave an online
condolence, visit the funeral home website.

Memorial contributions may be made to Eagle Hose Co. # 1 or the Dickson
City Community Ambulance Association all of Dickson City or donor’s
favorite charity.

Dear Elaine and Family, I met and worked with Tony over the past 10 years at BHS. As a distribution rep, I would work with many manufacturer reps over the years! Tony was and always will be the pinnacle of a professional sales representative! He would start and end a sales call with something from his personal life. He would talk about his lovely wife Elaine and all the nieces, and the plans for the weekend! Whenever we referred to Tony, it always "What a good guy"! Rest In Peace My friend, Mary Spetz

My sincerest condolences go out to Elaine and the entire Astolfi Family. I worked with Tony for 15 years and that in its self was an honor. Tony was the class act that everyone should strive to achieve in their life and to be held in the highest regard by his peers. Nobody ever said anything bad or negative about Tony since he walked the walk of honor everyday. This world has lost one of the good ones, however he left this earth to shine above to show the rest of us the way. Again deepest sympathy.

Dear Elaine and Family, We are so sorry for your loss. Tony was one of the best guys I know. This month is 13 years that we would have worked together at Attends and Domtar. He was my first boss out of college and I like to tell everyone that I learned from the absolute best from the start. He was a well traveled guy that knew a lot about a lot. We logged countless hours in the car traveling to the various accounts in our territories in good weather and bad. His presence in front of a customer was top notch and his success in sales at all three companies he worked for spoke for itself. I will always remember him for his "by the book" approach to everything. His fine taste in great bourbon, wine, and cigars. He also introduced me to the Residence Inn by Marriott and their point system and taught how they are a true home away from home and a great place to do work. I think they should dedicate one of their hotels to him! Tony. The saying that God takes the good ones too soon definitely applies to you. May God bless your wife, family, friends and co-workers, until we all meet again, keep us safe. Your friend. John Shiner
