He will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by his children, Gloria Dufour (Jack) of Barrie, Marion Humphries (Mike) of Aurora, and Alan Delost (Ginette) of Sudbury. He was a wonderful, caring and fun-loving grandfather to Jennifer, Allison, David, Greg, Andrea, Justine, Amy and Karen, as well as nine great-grandchildren.

Predeceased by his cherished sister and brothers, Eva, Frank and John. Tony was born in Croatia, on January 15, 1927 and immigrated to Canada at the age of 12. His family settled in Timmins, where he met the love of his life, Stella. They married in 1947 and had three children. They were married for 65 years.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the Delost family of Schumacher, for their wonderful support and love. We gratefully thank the nursing staff at Roberta Place for their care and compassion. Their dedication to our Dad during his time there was heart-warming and truly a blessing to our family.
