Anthony Carmine Luciano, 66, a lifelong Westport resident, died June 2, 2010, at home, after a fall.

He was born on July 11, 1943, to the late Restituta (Rita) Calise Luciano and Carmine Luciano. With his parents, he owned a Westport-based family business, which was sold in the 1980s.

Luciano loved life, family and friends. He was an avid traveler, and a car and horse racing aficionado -- never missing the summer races at Saratoga, N.Y.

He is survived by three children, Annette Luciano Panther of Stratford, Anthony W. Luciano of Westport, and Donald A. Luciano of Los Angeles; his grandchildren, Justin, Rita and Brendan; and by his companion, Veronica Harper.

Funeral services will take place at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 8, at St. Luke Church, 49 Turkey Hill Road N., Westport; interment will follow in Assumption Cemetery, 73 Greens Farms Road, Westport. The family will receive friends in the Harding Funeral Home, 210 Post Road E., Westport, on Monday, June 7, from 4 to 8 p.m.
