"Moving right along."

Born and raised in New York City, Anthony L. Wharton graduated from Seward Park High School, and thereafter worked many years setting up stages at fashion houses in Manhattan.

"Tony" loved his mother, Shirley, whom he cared for until she passed away. He also loved his nephews and nieces very much. Tony moved to Vermont around 1995 for a slower life and enjoyed friends, Lake Champlain and socializing with his neighbors on North Street.

Tony is survived by his cousins, Allen and Constance Jackson, and his local "family," Ben Luna ("Mr. B") and Kim McCrae.

A memorial celebration will be held this Saturday at the Olde Northender Pub, 23 North St., Burlington, from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
