Anton (Tony) Ruesch

was born on February 9th, 1929 in Brusio, Switzerland and passed away on February 19th, 2009 in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital, just ten days after celebrating his 80th birthday.

Tony was a long time resident of Lumby, had a great love of the outdoors and always enjoyed spending time with family. He is survived by his two sisters in Switzerland, nieces, nephews, step-sons and their families. He was preceded in death by his wife, Wanda in 2005.

Tony was a very quiet and private man. Keeping that in mind, his request was that he be cremated and a private family memorial service be held in his memory.

As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Tony to the Kidney Foundation Of Canada, #320-1600-6th Avenue, Vancouver, B.C. V6J 1R3 or to the charity of their choice.
