Anthony Martin Venomecci
October 4, 1976 - November 18, 1997


Anthony Martin Venomecci was born to Thomas Diego Venomecci and his wife Grace Joanne Miller-Venomecci in 1976 in Willingsboro, New Jersey. Anthony was a devoted son to his parents, a loving and devoted boyfriend to girlfriend of six years, Miss Christine Deseas, and a well-respected member of the local community. With his life, Anthony was proof that even bad seeds can bloom into something magnificent.

Just two weeks after being accepted to the local police academy, Anthony’s life was cut short in an explosion at Outrigger Sporting Goods on 5th and Oakley. Initial findings ruled the explosion to be accidental, but further investigation showed the cause to be arson. Owners of the store were arrested for the fire, and for the murder. The two men were turned over to federal authorities stemming from charges relating to their previous employer, a West Coast bank called Credit Dauphine. (see complete story on page A7, “Local Cadet Murdered in Explosion”)

Anthony’s childhood was troubled, leading him into a great deal of his teen years spent flirting with the wrong side of the law. After more than a few run ins with the police, Anthony developed a certain respect for those on the force, and with the encouragement and support of his parents, got his life back on track. Though his application to the Academy at eighteen was three years too soon, Anthony devoted himself not only to getting involved with his community, but in making up for his misspent years both in school and in his personal life.

Anthony is survived by his parents, his girlfriend, and a community that will be forever changed by the example he left behind...that no matter how bad life gets, there’s always time for a second chance . Closed casket services will be held at Our Lady Of Snows on Friday with graveside services to follow. In lieu of flowers, his parents are requesting donations made to the Red Cross or the Willingsboro Police Department’s Widows & Orphans Fund in Anthony’s name.
