James Anthony “Tony” Gatsby, 54, of Chesterfield, lost his courageous battle with cancer on Wednesday, May 23, 2018. He was preceded in death by his loving mother, Catherine Mingoia and father Francis Luce; aunt, Elizabeth Mingoia; and grandparents, Helen and John Mingoia. He leaves to mourn, his sisters, Annmarie Miranda (David) and Cate Mingoia (Cole); nieces, Melissa Miranda (Joey) and June Springate-Combs; nephews, Nicholas and Alex Miranda; friend, Danny Hall; his dogs, Angel and Abby; his cat, Tiger; and his great dog-nephew, Moose. Tony was a brilliant and creative man, a history teacher, an active member of the SCA, a walking encyclopedia, a comic book enthusiast and the best cook you’d ever meet. He was kind and compassionate and will be dearly missed by everyone who was lucky enough to know him. Services will be held in Yorktown Heights, NY.
