He prepared for Princeton at Barringer High School in Newark, N.J. At Princeton he majored in psychology, was a member of Dial Lodge, and participated in the Chapel Choir, varsity crew, and IAA track.
He earned a doctorate in clinical psychology at Penn State University and taught at Lehigh University and Moravian College before moving to Maryland to teach at Frostburg State College, where he met and married Maureen, who was to be his wife for 36 years.
Tony taught courses primarily in Frostburg’s graduate counseling psychology program and developed the undergraduate internship. Students saw him as demanding the best of them and masterful in his presentation of various theories and techniques.
Tony had many passions. He was a voracious reader, and his tastes ranged from speculative fiction to history and philosophy. He was an avid fan of Penn State football and the New York Yankees.
Tony is survived by his wife, Dr. Maureen Connelly; his four daughters, Karen Ruch, Kelly Lo Giudice and her husband, Scott Youmans, Dr. Kim Lo Giudice, and Kristi Lo Giudice; his sister, Yolanda Capasso; niece Ursula Tartaglia and her son, Joseph; sister-in-law Carol Lo Giudice; and his nephew, Louis Capasso.
