"Tony" "Big T", age 79 of Joliet, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 11, 2020 at Lakewood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Plainfield.

Born January 18, 1941 in Joliet, Anthony John was a son of Anthony F. and Helen (Zlogar) Muhich. He was raised and educated in Joliet and graduated from Joliet Catholic High School with the class of 1959. Tony had a work ethic that could go unmatched. He was the proud owner and operator of Artistic Signs in Joliet for over 50 years and later opened The Bow Hut Archery Range which was more of a passion project then a job. Bow hunting was his passion and he traveled the world for trophy game. Tony's main love was his family, especially his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Tony is survived by his wife of 56 years, Patricia; his daughters: Danelle (Anthony) Boose and Joelle (Angelo) Alex; grandchildren: McKenna, Kerrigan, Avery, Asher, Zander, Vance and Lola; brother: Kenneth (Cindy) Muhich and two nieces: Khristi and Lori.

Fondly remember Tony from the old neighborhood (anywhere in the vicinity of the Northwest Club) when we were just kids. Back then we knew him as "Jackie". His smile was infectious, and he was a really great guy. My condolences to his family.
