Anthony (Ante) Siska Grgas

Anthony (Ante) Siska Grgas, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away suddenly at home on March 11, 2011.
Anthony was born to Ane and Mate Siska Grgas on June 13, 1934 in Zablace, Croatia (former Yugoslavia). He immigrated to the United States in 1950 and served as an interpreter in the United States Army. After his honorable discharge, he established a home in Torrance, CA. Anthony worked 30 years at Shell Oil Company and advanced to the position of foreman. He enjoyed fishing on his boat, watching soccer games, listening to the Beatles, and spending time with close friends and family (especially grandchildren). Anthony retired in 1989 and moved to Lake Stevens, WA in 1994. During retirement, his hobbies included taking walks, making a lovely yard, feeding backyard birds, and caring for Ollie, his beloved dog.
Anthony is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Helga; son, Anthony Jr.; daughter, Marian; and five grandchildren, Luke, John, Jessica, Natalie and Daniel.
Anthony will always be remembered for the work he did to create a beautiful future for his children and grandchildren. He will forever be in our minds and our hearts.
A service to celebrate Anthony's life will take place on March 17, 2011 at 2 p.m. at Schaefer-Shipman Funeral Home, 804 State Ave., Marysville, WA 98270.
