Anthony "Tony" Bertovic

Tony was born on July 13, 1943 in McKeesport PA to John and Eva, moving with the family to San Pedro as a toddler. Born with physical challenges of cerebral palsy and deafness, Tony dealt with these challenges valiantly due to his mother's tireless dedication. His formal education began at Harlan Shoemaker School, San Pedro, and ended at California School for the Deaf, Riverside. As a working adult, Tony lived and took care of himself independently in San Pedro, Lake Forest and in the high desert in and around Hesperia. As a teenager he began working at Max Trujillo's service station at 9th and Palos Verdes Sts, then at Andy Marzich's Pro/San Pedro Bowl. Tony loved and excelled at bowling with an average well in the 200's, joined leagues and travelled to various tournaments. Tony completed his working career at Long Beach Naval Shipyard until it closed; he was continually recognized for his job dedication and performance. Tony made friends quickly and loved to kid. Tony is predeceased by his mother & father and his brother-in-law Richard Reynolds. He is survived by his brother John "Birdy", his sister Mary Reynolds, nephews Mark (Edith) and Lance (Elisha) Reynolds and great nephews/nieces Gia, Aidan, Drew, Mathias, Sophia and Norah (due in February).
