"Tony", 61, born in Brooklyn, NY, passed away at his home on March 18, 2014 after a 7-month battle with melanoma.
He grew up in Coney Island next to the beach and graduated from School of Art & Design NYC as an accomplished artist. Tony worked for RR Donnelley in NYC, then moved his family to Cummington, MA and opened a successful printing and graphics business. Moving to Poway, CA, he worked at American Color, L&L Printers, and at Precision Litho for the past 10 years. Tony committed 41 years to the printing industry and loved what he did - he loved the people he worked with even more. Tony's happiness came from serving others. He had a big heart and great sense of humor, and will be remembered for his compassion and love of family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Socorro (Toro) Izquierdo, and survived by his wife, Virginia "Ginny" Donaj; and four sons Madhava, Jagannath, Deva and Vilas.
Following cremation, a private family memorial will be held in May; a public memorial service will be posted next month. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Melanoma Foundation, www.melanomafoundation.org.
