Anthony held various positions over the years from a skilled carpenter to a heavy equipment mechanic. However, those who knew him well know that his true passion in life aside from his family was music. An avid bass guitar player and talented vocalist, Anthony performed all over this state and for various charities over the years. Anthony lived to bring people together through song and always believed that good music helped the soul. Many people knew of Anthony and his late father Bernard Curella by way of their bar, the Alva Country Diner formally Bernie’s Hideaway.
