Anthony J. Masters passed away at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Wednesday, July 25th.   The beloved husband of the late Regina (Smith) Masters, he was eighty three years of age.

Born in Boston, Anthony was one of two sons born to Italian immigrants, the late Ostillo and Eleanor (Leone) Mastrobattista.  Raised and educated in Roxbury he continued on to the Technical High School where he continued learning about cars and motorcycles.

Throughout Tonys’ life he had quite an interest in motorcycles and music!  He learned to play musical instruments at an early age and this interest remained with him throughout his life time.  Tony established his own “Tony Masters Orchestra,” playing the saxophone predominately, but could also play the guitar, trumpet and other instruments as well.  His orchestra played for years up and down at the night clubs along Route 1 and many of  the different clubs along Revere Beach.  Tony also enjoyed being dressed to the nines!  From the tip of his toes to the top of his head, he always made sure everything was picture perfect!

During the day Tony was involved in the car industry.  His mode of transportation weather permitting, was always his motorcycle!  Right up until a month ago Tony could be seen or found  seizing the opportunity of riding his motorcycle and then playing some real good sounds on a chosen instrument, at home. Tony was a very  happy man in all that he did and enjoyed sharing it all with his children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren!

    Great story about him I just read. Never met the man but if he was anything like his son Tony Masters, he had to be a great man! We will meet on the other side.
