Anthony(Tony) Peter Senecal, a resident of Lake Worth, FL died April 21, 2020 in Plattsburgh, NY. He was born in Plattsburgh, NY October 29, 1941 to the late Andrew Peter Senecal & Katherine Mary Delaney Senecal. Besides his parents, Tony was predeceased by his son, Andrew Peter Senecal II April 19, 2019, sister Mary Kathleen Senecal Phifer and brother Robert William Senecal. He is survived by his older brother Andrew Parsons Senecal of Pittsburgh, PA and Gail Caffrey Gardes of Silversprings, MD, his cousin, who he thought of as his sister. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and a special niece, Ann Senecal Martin, of Plattsburgh.
Tony was raised by his mother’s cousin George Caffrey and his wife Marian in Arlington, VA because his father died 7 months before his birth, and his mother when he was 3 years old. He graduated from Shepherd College in 1967 with a BA in English. Tony spent his early career teaching in Martinsburg, WV. He was owner/operator of Anthony House in Martinsburg, and Olde Berkeley Tea and Tobacco Shoppe in Martinsburg. Tony was the Mayor of Martinsburg in the early 90’s following in the footsteps of his late grandfather Andrew George Senecal, DDS who was the 7th Mayor of Plattsburgh, NY.
Tony retired to Lake Worth, FL where he used his gift of gab and knowledge of history giving tours to visitors to West Palm Beach. Tony enjoyed politics, researching his family history, along with being an avid fisherman who spent many hours fishing on Lake Champlain.
Tony will be interred in the Senecal family plot in St. Peters Cemetery, Plattsburgh, NY. Memorials in Tony’s name can be sent to Hospice of the North Country, 358 Tom Miller Road Plattsburgh, NY 12901.

I was a student of Mr. Senecal in my jr. year of high school in Martinsburg WV in 1968. I was painfully shy and Mr. Senecal really helped to bring me out of my shell. I had never experienced an educator like him! Later in life I had the pleasure of working in downtown Martinsburg across the street from Tony’s tobacco and news
stand. He was my teacher and friend. My maiden name was Sherry Butts. My married name is Hose. My prayers go to Tony’s family.

My deepest condolences to the family. Tony was my friend and my boss at the Anthony House Restaurant...a truly class act place started by Tony and his then wife Sue. Nothing but the best. Best service, Best food, Best for the customers. I learned a lot and we had a lot of fun too. I had returned from a year in Germany visiting relatives and working in Bavaria and returned to finish at Shepherd College. Tony and Sue were there for me offering me a job. Tony was a class act in so many ways and he was very liked by so many people. He lived his life to the fullest and was very respected by many. Over the years, even though we lost touch, I often spoke of the Anthony House and Tony. I still think about some of the stories from the Anthony House …...even my helping to drive some of our regulars home after a night of food and drink so they would be safe. He had even let me run a mini late night disco upstairs in the 70's which was very busy and much fun. I always expected Tony would be successful in all he attempted and he was. Rest in peace my friend and know you were cared for. Peggy Stover-Catha

Our condolences to the families of our old friend Tony. There are many things I could share of this kind, generous, patriotic man. He was a witty personality that always found time to engage you with a different perspective. A true mentor to me and many. Tony once shared with me his love of the cowboy life, simple, honest, and valued. Astonishingly, I shared in those same feelings. However, I didn't know we shared these same values until about 10 years ago. He once told me half his wardrobe was formal, and the other, western. A life well lived and full of memories for those of us that were lucky enough to have Tony pass through our lives. Happy trails, my old friend, till we all meet again.

I remember Tony ( that's what my parents called him) when I was a kid and my parents would go in his shop in Martinsburg. He was always very friendly and seemed to have a interesting story to tell whenever we saw him, which was alot back in those days. Sorry for the families loss.
