Anthony J. Accola, Jr.


Anthony J Accola Jr., 54, of Warwick, NY, passed away peacefully on January 26, 2024 surrounded by his loving family. 
Born on May 12, 1969, in Glenridge NJ, Anthony was raised and grew up in Belleville NJ, and was the son of Anthony Accola & the late Jamie Buttacavoli. 
Anthony had a loving passion for his career. He was a hairdresser for 37 years, and throughout, owned and operated several hair salons, most recently, Gumdrop Hairdressing in Montclair, NJ and Accola Hair in Warwick, NY.
Anthony was a loving, charming and caring man, with an infectious personality, and a great sense of humor. He was the life of the party, and could go from a dive bar to fine dining in a quick second. He had many hobbies which included riding his motorcycle, hunting, making his delicious homemade wine, and often having a memorable dance party with his wife. Most of all, he cherished the time spent with his friends and family. He will always be remembered by his wife and best friend/ride or die, Kim. Throughout his life, he cherished the day one friendships he created in his younger days. 
Anthony was involved in many activities including the Italian American Club in Goshen, NY. He often gave up his time to host charity events and Cut-A-Thons, to benefit the homeless and childhood cancer. 
Anthony is survived by his loving wife of 17 years, Kimberly (LaPlaca) Accola, his former wife Tammi (Tischio) Polidoro, and their beloved & amazing children, Gianna Falzarano (Christopher), and Michael Accola, along with his cherished grandchildren Vienna and Joseph Falzarano. He is survived by his father Anthony Accola Sr, father in law James LaPlaca, mother in law Linda LaPlaca, brother in law Jimmy Jr. LaPlaca, as well as his sister Alexis Marricone (Steve), along with his nephew Vincent Fikes, and nieces Nicole Fikes and Olivia Marricone. He was predeceased by his mother Jamie Buttacavoli, and his son Anthony R. Accola.
