He was born in Northampton on November 19, 1947 to the late Lewis and Olga (Cecilio) Wendolowski Sr. Tony was a lifelong resident of Hatfield, MA and graduated Smith Academy in 1965 and went on to complete the machine shop program at Smith Vocational Agricultural High School in 1967. He worked as a machinist from 1967 until his retirement in 2008.

As a 3rd generation farmer Tony's heart was on the family farm. He was passionate about feeding his community, sharing his knowledge and was always happy to share a beer. He employed countless students on the farm over the summers and donated countless pounds of vegetables to the community. Always willing to lend a hand Tony could be found all around town helping friends, family and the community at large.

He leaves behind his wife of 50 years Helen (Michaud) Wendolowski, his daughter Aimee Wendolowski and her partner Chris Bushika, his son Mark Wendolowski, his wife Alicia and his two grandchildren and buddy o' pals, Jay (Juletha) and Zane Wendolowski.

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Tony is his "smile," but his greatest "legacy" is what has been passed down to the numerous kids that worked for him on the farm. Great job "Tony!"

Words can't truly express how I feel about Tony's passing. My heartfelt condolences to Helen, Mark, Aimee and Diane. Not to mention all those that will miss Tony as I will. He taught me everything I know, and never had an ill word for anybody. Rest in peace, Pal.
