Anthony Tedesco "Tony," 94, of Circleville, Ohio, died peacefully on May 10, 2014, with his family by his side. Tony was born to the late Joseph and Susan Tedesco on November 15, 1919, in Cleveland, Ohio.
He graduated from Zion Bible College as president of his class. He worked most of his life as a union carpenter, both in California and in Erie, Pennsylvania, where he retired. Tony enjoyed watching most sports and participated in recreational golfing and baseball. He loved family get-togethers, where there was always good food and fun times, playing bocce and Uno. Tony also had a great love for the Bible. He read it through several times each year, and could quote lengthy passages by memory. He faithfully attended and was an active part of Kingston Mound Bible Church. Tony was a perfectionist, and did his work with excellence. His son-in-law Larry said that he could imagine him getting to heaven, looking all around and saying, "Perfect." He now is in a perfect place where there is perfect health, perfect joy and perfect peace.
In addition to Tony's parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Rose Tedesco, of 24 years, and his son Danny Tedesco, along with four brothers, Dominic, Joseph, Frank and Rocco. Also four sisters, Rose, Ruth, Catherine and Theresa.

Tony is also survived by five grandchildren and six step-grandchildren, along with two step-great-grandchildren.
