Pavone, Anthony M. of Revere formerly of East Boston passed away on Sept 7th. At age 82. In his early years and humble beginnings, Anthony shined shoes on the Boston ferries, he joined the Navy 1942 during the war and was honorably discharged. After his release he was schooled in electronics, carpentry and mechanics. In the late 50’s he became a baker at Godfrey’s in Saugus with a vision of opening his own bakery. His dream was realized in the late 60’s when he opened his bakery, My Donuts. His slogan of “My donuts once, yours forever” rang true as his success soared. He was able to retire at age 53 enabling him to pursue his true passion for boating which he enjoyed up until his last years. His other joys included traveling, fine dining and a lust for life. Everyone close to him will recall his kind gestures, compassion and honesty. He will be sadly missed but forever happily remembered by his two sons Joseph E.
