1953 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
Tony Espinoza Obituary

Tony Espinoza was the son of Robert and Petra Espinoza. His siblings include Isabel, Robert, Jr., Gloria, Raymond, and Albert. He married Rosalie Torres and they had a daughter, Laura, and sons, Anthony and Ruben. His only granddaughter, Victoria, was so special to him.

Tony retired after 20 years as a big rig driver for Frito-Lay and was proud of his accomplishment of driving over 1 1/2 million safe miles. Tony loved backyard barbecues using red oak from the coast. He enjoyed playing poker with his family and always looked forward to betting the Kentucky Derby and was referred to as "Long Shot." Until we meet again, this quiet and gentle giant will be greatly missed.

He leaves behind numerous aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews, and this special couple - his in-laws, Frank and Lorraine Torres.

A vigil will be held on Sunday, February 7, 2016, at Greenlawn Southwest Celebration of Life Center from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with the Rosary being recited at 11:00 a.m. A Funeral Mass for Tony will be on Monday, February 8, 2016, at 9:00 a.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Church, with interment following at Greenlawn Southwest Memorial Park, 2739 Panama Lane.
