The only family-owned and locally owned funeral establishment on the monterey peninsula



Dr. Anthony K. Ricciardi, D.D.S.

September 3, 1946 ~ January 7, 2019 (age 72)

We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing away of Tony Ricciardi on Monday, January 7th, 2019. 

Tony was born on September 3rd, 1946, in Hawthorne, Nevada to Armando U. Ricciardi and Therese K. Ricciardi. He was the oldest of 7 children, raised in Reno, Nevada.  It was in Reno where Tony met his wife of 52 years, Barbara Crumley Ricciardi. After graduating from the University of Nevada, Reno, he received his degree in general dentistry from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco.

Tony established his 35-year dental practice here in Carmel in 1973. He was a beloved family dentist and delighted in playing tricks on his unwitting patients. The fake spiders, 12-inch long syringe, and the infamous mongoose were all his ubiquitous pranks. It was through his practice he developed such strong ties with his patients and the people of our community.

With a larger than life passion for sports, food, family and friends, Tony loved to plan trips to see the colors change, mushroom hunting excursions, and indulge in the most epic beach parties, featuring the best local seafood and intense bocce ball tournaments. 

 Thank you “Toto” for giving us the best memories and always making us laugh.  You will be forever missed.

Tony is survived by his wife Barbara, daughter, Paige (Richard Kitson), son, Andrew (Jennie), four grandchildren (Ella, Cooper, Isabella, Maya ) and six siblings, and a large extended family.  Preceding him in death was his father, Armando Ugo Ricciardi, Therese Kirsch Ricciardi, and his daughter Casey Ricciardi Yeager.
