Anthony Michael McMenemy
Anthony Michael McMenemy, 28, a lifelong resident of Planet Earth, died unexpectedly on Monday April 6, 2015.
He was born in Nashua, NH on August 5, 1986 as a son of Michael and Lori McMenemy.
Anthony was raised in Merrimack, NH and attended Merrimack High School. In 2004 he joined the United States Army and became a Cavalry Scout for the 101st Airborne Division and was based in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
After an honorable discharge from the United States Army, Tony (as he was known by many) was able to combine his interest for travel with his love for music by working as a production assistant for one of his favorite bands, Slightly Stoopid. While with the band, Tony was able to travel continuously throughout the United States, which allowed him to visit many locations on his bucket list during his tenure with the group.
Beyond music and travel, Anthony had a love for outdoor activities such as skateboarding, snowboarding, fishing, and camping. He also had an inherent passion for history, literature, art, and flying robots among many other disciplines. On paper, Anthony may have only held a high school education, but he never let that hold him back. He was a modern day renaissance man; Tony was able to conduct a conversation with anyone about anything at any time.
Anthony is survived by: his loving parents Michael and Lori McMenemy of Marblehead, MA; his maternal grandmother Ann Amicarelli of Smithfield, Rhode Island; his brother Thomas McMenemy and sister in law Jennifer Beaudry of Hartford, CT; his sister Carolyn McMenemy-Chirico and her husband Tom Chirico of Brooklyn, New York; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Anthony was predeceased by: his maternal grandfather, Dr. Anthony Amicarelli of Smithfield, RI; and his paternal grandparents Barbara and William McMenemy of Worcester, MA.
A Mass of Christian burial was celebrated in Our Lady of Mercy Church, Merrimack on Saturday April 10, 2015. Burial will follow in the Last Rest Cemetery.
