Anthony J. "Tony" Schiripo Jr.

DRACUT, MA - Anthony J. "Tony" Schiripo Jr., 66, died peacefully, Monday, June 18th, at Mass General Hospital in Boston, MA surrounded by his loving family. 

Tony was born in Lowell, on August 3, 1951, a son of M. Sue (DeDeyn) Conway of Englewood, Florida, and the late Anthony J. "Tony" Schiripo, Sr. He was a graduate of Dracut High School, class of 1969.
