Anthony Rizzo/Hercules Heat Treating

We regret to mention the passing of Anthony Rizzo at one time owner of Hercules Heat Treating Corp., in Brooklyn, NY

We at “The Monty Heat Treat News” met Anthony a couple of times over the years and still retain a very good memory of the man. Hercules Heat Treat is a very specialized heat treater, concentrating on the aerospace industry in particular the heat treatment of aircraft landing gear.


“Anthony I. Rizzo, age 92, of Paramus passed away on Thursday, April 25th, 2024. Anthony is predeceased by his loving wife Catherine of 62 years of marriage. He is survived by his son Anthony P. Rizzo and his wife Melissa, daughter Carol Janes, and son Kenneth Rizzo and his wife Gena. Adoring grandfather to five grandchildren – Elena, Matthew, Janine, Nicholas and his wife Brianna and Eric.

Anthony enjoyed going on vacations and spending time with family. He would attend many events involving his grandchildren including dance recitals, sporting events, and graduations. He was the proud owner of Hercules Heat Treating Corporation, a 75-year-old family-owned business that specialized in metallurgical engineering. The company participated in programs for aerospace parts for the F-18, F-35, and A-10. Furthermore, the company produced parts that were used on the space shuttle programs that began in 1981 and ended in 2011. On a nice day you could find him sitting on his porch outside reading his newspaper and finishing up his crosswords. Always a family orientated man, he loved hosting holidays and being surrounded by his children and grandchildren.”
