  Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, the following thoughtful 
obituary was published in The Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin on April 
27, 2018:

       Anthony Giannetti Jr. passed with amazing grace on Saturday 
     21 April 2018, at North Austin Medical Center surrounded by 
     his loving family. He was born 10 March, 1939, in Meshoppen, 
     PA, to Anthony and Concetta Giannetti. One of four children, 
     Tony, or Junior as he was called by his family, was a 
     determined young man who graduated from Vestal High School 
     and served in the United States Marine Corps. He had a long 
     and distinguished career as a project manager for 
     International Business Machines in Endicott, NY, and Austin, 
     TX. He worked for IBM for 32 years until his retirement in 
     1994. Tony was first and foremost a family man. He enjoyed 
     watching all kinds of sporting events, especially attending 
     those his children and grandchildren played in. He is 
     survived by his wife of 54 years, Beverly, son Michael, son 
     Anthony and daughter-in-law Silvana, son Joseph, daughter 
     Christine and son-in-law Bryan, and his two granddaughters 
     Nadia and Fiona. He will be eternally loved and sorely missed 
     by his family and friends. Tony left nothing undone here on 
     earth, . . . and he did it his way. Rest in peace.
