"A Pomona man who died in a one-car accident about 20 months ago will be remembered in the community with a road named after him.
Starting Saturday, the 2-mile long Thiells-Mount Ivy Road will also be known as "Anthony Amoros Way." A blue-colored street name sign will be installed under the existing green one Saturday afternoon. "
Haverstraw town Supervisor Howard Phillips said upon request from the Amoros family, the town approved giving a second name to Thiells Mount-Ivy Road and installing the plaque at the golf course commemorating the young man.
"Our feelings and sympathies go out to the family," Phillips said. "This is a small way that we can help them remember their son and his contribution to our community."
Al and Ivette Amoros, Anthony's parents, have been looking for ways — from establishing a scholarship in their son's name to organizing petitions to make the road safer — to keep their son's legacy alive. Many of Anthony's friends and members of the community stepped in to help.
Al Amoros said naming the road after his son was important to the family.
"He did so many things here in this county," Al Amoros said. "He grew up here. He not only helped young people but also helped senior citizens as well."
