the Philadelphia legal community mourns along with his wife Rose, their
children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. My heart and prayers go out to
all of them.
DeFino was known to so many people in so many different ways. He was a devoted
family man and a zealous jurist. He was a community man and a proud
was the founder of the Order of Brotherly Love, a past president of the Frank
Palumbo Lodge of the Order Sons of Italy in America, and he was an Ex Officio
member of the Board of Governors of The Justinian Society of Philadelphia.
never tried a case in front of his honor, but I did have the pleasure to serve
with him on the board of The Justinian Society. Every meeting was brighter and
lighter when he was in the room. His smile was contagious.
fond memory is from 2008. I was the Justinian Chancellor and we honored Judge
DeFino with the Cesare Beccaria Award, the highest award given by the Justinian
Society in partnership with the Criminal Justice Section of the Philadelphia
Beccaria Award is given to an individual who promotes the cause of justice and
the advancement of legal education, and who exemplifies the ideals of Cesare
Beccaria, an Italian scholar whose writings would help lay the foundation for
the modern legal system.
that day, I quoted the late Honorable Lisa A. Richette, who said, “…it is clear
that a voice like Beccaria’s is divinely inspired, and in turn, throughout the
centuries, continues to uplift us to a vision of justice luminous with both
humanity and discipline. Beccaria’s vision is a lasting memorial to the potential
majesty of the law and to the beauty of the human spirit.”
it was in the spirit of justice that we presented the Beccaria Award to our
friend and longtime member, Judge Anthony DeFino, a man with a distinguished
career in the field of criminal law.
morte non ci porta via completamente la persona amata, rimane sempre il suo ricordo
che ci incita a continuare. Coraggio. (Death
doesn't take away completely a loved person whose memory lasts and induce us to
go on with courage.)
