Nicassio, Dr. Anthony




Dr. Anthony "Tony" Nicassio, 69 of Plum Boro passed away Suddenly on Saturday, May 6, 2017. He is survived by his wife Sandra (Cinefra) Nicassio, his children Anthony (Christy) Nicassio of Gibsonia, Mark (Chrissy) Nicassio of Monroeville and daughter Christina Nicassio of Plum. He is also survived by 2 grandsons, Tony and Joey of Gibsonia and nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Luigi and Maria (Pavia) Nicassio and brothers Dominic, Ralph and Mario Nicassio. Dr. Nicassio grew up in Penn Hills and returned to the area after graduating Hahnemann School of Medicine in 1976 starting his own practice. He was a dedicated physician with the Greater Pittsburgh Medical Associates, UPMC with offices in Penn Hills and Bloomfield. He touched the lives of so many of his patients and it was not uncommon for them to stop a family member to tell them as much. They would always share a story of how beloved he was and how appreciative they were of his hard work and dedication in caring for their families. His passion was his love for family, friends, good food, wine, travel and relaxing with family at the beach or sitting on his patio on a warm sunny day. Visitation will be private for the family. Friends and relatives are invited to a Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, 11 a.m., St. Irenaeus Catholic Church, Oakmont. EVERYONE PLEASE MEET AT CHURCH. Donations may be made in his name to the Hillman Cancer Center, 5115 Centre Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15232. Arrangements by BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES, INC. Oakmont.
