Popular Anthony Rossi dies

Anthony Rossi, seen dancing with Carrie Lannon, was a frequent presence on Chicago’s social and charity scene.

The many friends and former customers of Anthony Rossi — long the couture kingpin at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chicago — are mourning the loss of that always-upbeat, real gentleman who was truly a gentle man, and well-known presence on the city’s social and cultural scene.

I rarely saw Tony without a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye. After his long career with Saks — where he managed the Michigan Avenue store’s multi-million-dollar couture/designer department — Tony devoted his retirement years to doing good works for his beloved Holy Name Cathedral and such charities as the USO and the Costume Council of the Chicago History Museum.

A memorial service for Tony Rossi is scheduled for March 15 at Holy Name. RIP my friend. You will be sorely missed.
