Antonio Sebastian "Tony" Costamagna Obituary
Antonio "Tony" Sebastian Costamagna, 73, passed away Monday, May 19, 2014. He was born in Cucamonga, California, to Paolo and Maria Costamagna, and graduated from Riverside Polytechnic High School in 1959. He married Mary Ellen Holt in 1962, and they had two children.
Tony farmed in Mira Loma, California with his brother until moving to Bakersfield in 1977 where he and his brother continued to farm until their retirement in 2005. In retirement, Tony was involved with the Model T Ford Club of Kern County. He loved his old cars and thoroughly enjoyed driving them in local events, participating in tours around the country and happily talking about them when people would inevitably stop him to admire his car and ask questions. He loved helping his family and many friends and will be greatly missed.
He leaves behind his loving wife Mary, his daughters, Susan and Gina, his grandson Kennon, his mother-in-law Mary Lou Holt, his brother Joe Costamagna and Joe's family.
