Anton "Tony" J. Gagas
age 79 of Stevens Point passed away on Saturday July 6, 2013 at the House of the Dove in Marshfield after a long courageous battle with prostate cancer. Tony was born on July 27, 1933 in the Town of Sharon to John & Helen (Zimbauer) Gagas. His marriage to Elizabeth M. Woyak took place on February 6, 1960. She passed away on June 23, 2009.
Tony worked for local farmers from the age of 10, as well as working the family farm. He worked for Joerns/Sunrise Medical from 1959 until his retirement. He also worked for Steinburg dairies hauling milk to the Iola Creamery as well as having his own lawn and snow removal business. Tony was such a hard worker, usually working 3 jobs at a time all his life. He had an avid green thumb, loved planting plants, the outdoors, all animals & cutting his grass. He and the site of his little red Ford pickup truck will be sadly missed around town. No matter where you went around town, you would see his little red truck and him pushing a lawnmower.
The family would like to thank the Hospice teams in Stevens Point & Marshfield for their outstanding care and kindness. Special thanks to Tina Ryburn a wonderful family friend who was near and dear to Tony's heart.
