Anthony S. Natoli, 43, formerly of South Toms River, died suddenly on July 25, 2021, at his home in Riviera Beach, Florida. Born in Neptune, he was raised in South Toms River and lived here most of his life before moving to Florida 6 years ago. Anthony loved his job with Jim Abernethy’s Scuba Diving Adventures of Riviera Beach, where he governed operations for the company. Before moving there, Anthony was previously employed by EnSync Interactive Solutions, Inc. of Freehold, where he helped support and deliver information technology and management related services.
Anthony was fun loving and larger than life. He was known for his contagious laugh and big smile. Practical jokes and good times were guaranteed when Anthony was around. He had a love for animals and had many fish aquariums and birds throughout his life. His most cherished pet was a cocker spaniel named Cookie. The two were inseparable and went on many car rides together. Some of his favorite activities included bargain hunting for the best deals and shopping for cars. Anthony also had a passion for helping his family and friends when purchasing the house or car of their dreams. Anthony will be dearly missed by his loved ones.
He was predeceased by his grandfather Thomas Natoli Sr., father Thomas Natoli Jr., and by his aunt and uncle, Francine and James Hattersley. Anthony is survived by his mother Jane Natoli and by his three siblings, Thomas Natoli III and his wife Christy, Theresa Natoli, Mary Cotton and her fiancé RJ, niece Mya Cotton and four cousins Anna Bruno, Michelle Bruno, James Hattersley and Jennifer Zelinsky, as well as his dear friend Mike Breitenbeck, and former partner of 15 years Brian Faulhaber.
