Anthony Zanghi, U.S. Army combat engineer

Part two

November 4, 2012
The OBSERVER

After leaving Harmon General Hospital in Texas, Anthony Zanghi was transferred back to Fort Dix, New Jersey. On Dec. 21, 1944, while on a weekend leave, Tony went with some friends to the old Van Buren Bay Inn (next to the Van Buren Drive Inn). They met some girls. One of them, Josephine LaSpada, was "the cutest girl (he) had ever seen." It was love at first sight and Tony and "Spitty," Josephine's nickname, were married on June 15, 1946, at Holy Trinity Church on Ruggles Street, just down the street from Spitty's home. Their reception was at the original Colonial Inn in Fredonia, across from the intersection of Main and Eagle streets. The inn was torn down in the late 1960s to build a bank.
