Anthony DeVivio, who ran the East Hampton office of Halstead Property, died on Sunday at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan. He was 63 and had been diagnosed with cancer six months ago.

Mr. DeVivio started his career as a broker at Thomson McKinnon Se­curities in Manhattan before moving on to take managerial roles at Prudential Securities and Dreyfus Investment Services. In 2005, he left Wall Street for a career in real estate, beginning as a broker for the Corcoran Group on the South Fork before moving on to Halstead.

Mr. DeVivio lived for 10 years on Cooper Lane in East Hampton, moving there full time in 2013. He was on the board of directors of East Hampton Meals on Wheels.

“Not only was he ambitious in his career,” his family wrote, “Anthony was even more dedicated to the love and support of his family. He enjoyed spending time with his children, whether it be skiing, fishing, bowling, golfing, or watching his beloved New York Rangers.”

Mr. DeVivio was born in the Bronx on June 4, 1953, one of the six children of Livio DeVivio and the former Clara Aranow. He grew up in Far Rockaway, attending Far Rockaway High School. In 1980 he graduated from Whittier College in Southern California, where he studied economics and theater and played baseball.

Mr. DeVivio was married to the former Kathryn Geoghegan of New Jersey, who survives. The marriage ended in divorce. He is survived by their children, Lauren DeVivio, Ashley DeVivio, Andrew DeVivio, and Kristin DeVivio, all of New Jersey. He is also survived by a sister, Barbara Cibirka of Seaford, and a brother, John DeVivio of Belle Harbor, Queens.

Three of his brothers, Thomas, Robert, and Richard DeVivio, died before him.

He was the favorite uncle of a dozen surviving nieces and nephews, said his partner of 20 years, Carmen Mantione, who also survives him.

Mr. DeVivio was cremated. A funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday at 11 a.m. at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church in East Hampton. There will be a private burial at Cedar Lawn Cemetery in East Hampton.

The family has suggested memorial donations to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York 10065, or to Meals on Wheels, 33 Newtown Lane, Suite 205, East Hampton 11937.
