Carmine C. Iannone of Somers, NY passed away at the NYS Veterans Home in Montrose on February 25, 2019 at the age of 96. He was born in Salerno, Italy on June 9, 1922, the son of Luigi and Adelaide (neé DeSimone) Iannone.

Upon retirement he took up tennis which became one of his favorite pastimes and he played well into his late 80's.
