In Memoriam: Anthony Biddle

Tony BiddleACPA board member, Anthony “Tony” Biddle of Anthony Biddle Contractors, Inc. of Ambler, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully on June 7, 2022.

Tony started working in the construction industry in 1976 as a stone mason. Having worked at various locations throughout Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, Tony gained the construction knowledge he needed to start his own concrete and excavation contracting company in 1984.

In 2001, he purchased his own concrete pumps and then joined the American Concrete Pumping Association (ACPA) in 2007. Tony was elected to the ACPA Board of Directors as the Region Three Pump Director, taking office in 2019, and was re-elected to serve a second term for years 2021–2022. Tony also belonged to the General Building Contractors Association of Philadelphia and the Contractors Association of Eastern Pennsylvania. He served as a pension trustee for the stone masons local since 1991.

Tony was the type of owner that was out on the job site daily, many times operating the pumps himself, and was well-experienced in concrete. He also was a student of his business, traveling to the World of Concrete every year to see and learn what was new in the industry.

Tony enjoyed golfing and was a long-time member of North Hills Country Club, where he made many friends through the club’s various events. He enjoyed annual golf trips to Las Vegas and Pawleys Island, South Carolina with his closely held friends. Tony had a love for food and could always be relied upon to find just the right spot to share good food with family and his good friends.

Biddle, III and Christina Biddle; his granddaughter Isabela J. Biddle; two brothers, John Biddle and Dave Biddle; and his sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.
