Anthony A. Trabona, an Army veteran who was among the occupation force in Japan at the conclusion of World War II, died at home on Folkstone Road in Springs last Thursday. He was 96.
Mr. Trabona had been drafted in about 1943, his family said, and following basic training, was sent to Hawaii and then on to Japan.
After leaving the Army, he became a self-taught carpenter, living in Deer Park and building houses during the postwar boom. He also worked calibrating aviation electronics and later was the maintenance mechanic for the Babylon School District.
