Anthony “Tony” Thomas Barbuto passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, at his home in Webster, NY on November 2, 2021 at the age of 69.

Born on May 7, 1952, Tony was raised in Watervliet, NY and lived most of his life in the Albany/Rensselaer county area.  He earned a Bachelor of Science degree at SUNY Albany and worked as a research scientist at General Electric Research and Development Center in Schenectady, NY for 29 years.  Tony was an active member of the Knights of Columbus in Watervliet, NY for many years, as well as an Assistant Scout Master to Troop 162, Latham, NY.

During his five blissful years of retirement, Tony enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and sunny winters in Florida with his friends at Pierpoint.  His favorite hobbies included golfing, walking on the beach and traveling.

Tony is predeceased by his parents Charles “Carl” and Helen Barbuto, siblings Robert “Bob” and William “Bill” Barbuto.  He is survived by his wife and love of his life, Margaret “Maggie,” beloved children Tracey (Jack) Coultry and Scott (Anthony) Barbuto, grandchildren Oliver Aiden and Finnley Thomas Coultry, and granddogs Rori Coultry and Orin Barbuto.  He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

Thank you to Dr. O’Dwyer and team, as well as the Strong Memorial Infusion Center team, for their compassionate care during Tony’s treatment.  Tony was blessed with many special family members, friends and neighbors.  Thank you to all for the love, support and prayers.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. It was a privilege to work with Tony for many, many years at the Research Center with his perpetually good spirit and his dedication to his expertise. With my sympathy

    I was doing a web search to see if I could get the old gang from AL Tech together this summer, when I heard this awful news from Ed Ragosta. Lyn and I are so sorry to hear of this. Tony was far too young to leave us. He was one of my favorite people at Al Tech. Remember the wonderful times we had at our AL Tech picnics; from Lake George to Thatcher Park. We played baseball and all the kids played so well with each other. At a young age I think my son Kieran had a crush on your daughter–maybe it was mutual. Eddie reminded me of the hilarious Halloween Party we had at our house dunking for apples. We miss you sooo much. Tony and I had so many laughs at work, like the time I came in dressed as Santa Clause and surprised him with my silly gifts (have you been a good boy, Tony). We were blessed to have you, Tony and the kids in our lives.
    Remembering you all fondly and lovingly,
    Ed and Lyn Connolly

    Margaret, I ran into Mark Teson yesterday. 12/22/22. We grew up together in port Schuyler along with your family. The Coffey’s. I knew all of you so well. Your brother Jackie was my first friend when my mom and I moved there. Mark and I were talking about the good old days. And in conversation he mentioned about Tony. I had no idea about his passing. I am very very sorry about your loss. I just wanted to reach out to you. Your family was a huge part of my life. God bless you. Phil Sirigiano.
