RAGANO, Anthony Sr. "Tony"

Proud father, loyal friend, and loving companion, Anthony "Tony" Ragano Sr., 78, died January 1, 2019 in Tampa. Tony is survived by the love of his life, Arlene Busciglio; son, Anthony "Troy" Ragano Jr. (Alexis Vars); brother, Joe Ragano (Lily) and a family of extended loved ones including Shawn (Lisa) Hooker; grandson, Julian Hooker; and John David Hooker. He is preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Ragano and Mary Italiano. Owner and operator of Southern Tire Company since 1961, he was a long-time staple of the South Tampa community. Some of the many things that brought a smile to Tony's face were his weekly Wednesday lunches with his brother and old friends, his golf group, and spending time with his dog Bubba. He loved baseball, the Rays, and most especially going to watch his grandson Julian play. Tony was loved by many and will be missed by all. "To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die" ~Thomas Campbell. The family asks that in lieu of flowers to celebrate Tony's life a donation be made in his name to the FOOT Foundation or Humane Society of Tampa Bay.
