Causi is survived by his wife Romina and his two children John and Mia. NY Post editor-in-chief Stephen Lynch also paid tribute his tributes.
“Anthony Causi was our colleague, our friend, and a brilliant journalist. He was, quite simply, one of the best sports photographers in New York City, capturing all the major moments of the past 25 years. Soft-spoken, funny, but most of all kind — he was respected by those he photographed and admired by those with whom he worked. The Post that you read, and the newsroom that we work in, are less colorful today because of his absence. Our hearts go out to his family, and we share their grief,” said NY Post editor-in-chief Stephen Lynch.
The MMA India Show expresses its deepest condolences to Anthony Causi’s friends and families.
