Guy Anthony (Gaspar Favaloro), 89, of Miamisburg, Ohio, passed away quietly with family at his side on June 6, 2017, at hospice.
He was born in Boston, the youngest son of Anthony and Josephine Favaloro.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his oldest son, Paul Anthony; his sisters, Julia (Pascucchi), Mary (Marino); and his brothers, Vito, Serafino, and Salvatore Favaloro.
He is survived by his wife, Natalie; daughter, Susan Favaloro; sons, James and John (Toni Sanchez) Anthony; daughter-in-law, Dena Anthony; grandchildren, Brooke (Erik) Heikkila, Jessica Hill-Oldfield (Kyle), Lyle (Melissa) Anthony, Lyndsay (John) Morris; great-grandchildren, Andrew Morris, Banyan and Irie Heikkila, Olivia and Madelyn Anthony, and other extended family.
Guy graduated from Gloucester High School, and attended radio and TV broadcasting school in New York City. He then partnered with a best friend and they opened a radio/tv sales and repair business in Salem, Mass. With a growing family, he sold insurance, then moved on to sales with Cannon Electric. That job relocated him to Connecticut, then to Dayton, Ohio. With passion, he became a successful entrepreneur by founding Astro Industries, as well as Sunray Electronics. He held a real estate license, and owned and managed commercial real estate.
As Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop #436, this was one of his contributions to giving great lessons to others.
In every venture, he operated with responsibility, honesty, integrity, respect, and an untiring work ethic which he passed on to those around him as well as his children.
He married his high school sweetheart, Natalie (Nikola), 67 years ago, and once reaching the goals he set for himself, his family and his business, he sold it, and they retired to Florida for over 25 years. Top on the bucket list was a number of years spent as “live-aboards” on a 40’ sailboat named the “We’re Here” based out of Ft. Lauderdale, sailing throughout the Caribbean. They then settled on land in the Clearwater area and enjoyed many years of fishing, more boating, tennis, traveling, bridge, and golf. His wife got the 1st hole-in-one, but he followed with five of his own.
Medical issues in 2009 brought them back to Ohio to be closer to family, quality medical care and support. A progressive condition, he experienced every stage until complications ended his ability to experience life as he would have wanted.
The family would like to thank everyone at Sycamore Glen Retirement Community, their home for the past seven years. Also, many thanks to Hospice of Dayton, and the staff at the Butler/Warren County location who provided much kindness to Guy and his family at every stage.
The family will receive friends on Monday, June 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Tobias Funeral Home, Far Hills Chapel, 5471 Far Hills Ave., Kettering. Service will follow at 7 p.m. with Pastor Bill DePoyster. The family will have private services for interment at a later date. Online condolences may be sent to www.tobiasfuneralhome.com.
