was born on June 15th, 1929 in Vienna, Austria and passed away on January 23rd, 2013 in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 83 years.
Toni will be lovingly remembered by his wife Wally, to whom he was married for 32 wonderful years; one daughter, Shari (Tony); two sons, Greg (Joyce) and Trevor; nine grandchildren, Lauren, Chantal (Mike), Kira, Hayley, Jessie, Ben, Julia, Kaden and Anika; his former daughters-in-law, Lisa (Barry), Jennifer and Gwen (Steffen); one niece, Kristy (Laird) and one nephew, Dave (Cynthia). He was preceded in death by his sister, Thea.
A very special man, Toni will always be remembered for his warm heart, giving nature and entertaining stories. A talented wood carver and painter, he created many beautiful things. From ballroom dancing to fishing and anything in-between, Toni lived a good full life. He touched many people and to say that he will be missed, is a true understatement.
In respecting Toni’s wishes, he was cremated and a gathering of family and friends will take place at a later date to celebrate his life. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Toni to the Lung Association of B.C., P.O. Box 34009, Postal Station D, Vancouver, B.C. V6J 4M2.
