Anthony J. "Tony" Rubino, who formerly headed the U.S. Naval Academy's physical education department, died early yesterday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center of injuries from an automobile collision on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
Mr. Rubino, 77, was westbound when his Cadillac was sideswiped by an Oldsmobile veering out of a lane temporarily designated for eastbound traffic. Mr. Rubino's car then collided head-on with a Honda.
A longtime resident of Annapolis, he was a former chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness. He was on the faculty of the academy's physical education department for 32 years, and served as deputy director of physical education -- the senior civilian position in the department -- from 1959 until his retirement in 1980.
