Obituary for Antanas "Tony" Kazlauskas

Antanas Kazlauskas, known as “Tony” or “Mr. K”, of Onaway, passed away at the age of 94 at the Reserve of Spring Hill in Spring Hill, Tennessee on Saturday March 2, 2019. Tony resided with his daughter and son-in-law since November of 2018 so they could care for him after a fall and fractured hip.

The former Antanas Kazlauskas was born on March 15, 1924 in Marijampole, Lithuania to Antanas Kazlauskas and Adele Pracutas Kazlauskas.

On March 6, 1948 Antanas “Tony” and Elizabeth “Liz” married in Bomberg City, Germany. On January 6, 1951, they arrived in the New York Harbor, United States on the General Sturgeous ship where they were sponsored by St. Anthony’s Church in Detroit, Michigan. Tony worked for Star Tool & Die as a tool and die maker until his retirement in 1980. In 1980, Tony and Liz moved permanently to Onaway where they had owned property since the late 1960’s. Tony loved the outdoors. He loved fishing, hunting, gardening, bird watching, and spending time with grandchildren and great grandchildren. Tony was a member of St. Paul Catholic Church in Onaway.

Tony will be sadly missed by his only living daughter, Genie (Mark) Sikora of Thompsons Station, Tennessee; seven grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren; and sister, Regina Bielovolova of Alytus, Lithuania.

Preceding Tony in death were his wife, Liz, in 2009; daughter, Regina Kazlauskas, in 1948; three sons, Viktor Kazlauskas, in 1988, Daniel Kazlauskas, in 2010, and Anthony “Tony” Kazlauskas, in 2011.

A funeral mass will be held at St. Paul Catholic Church in Onaway at 11:00 AM on Saturday May 4, 2019. Tony’s final resting place will be at North Allis Township Cemetery. Those planning an expression of sympathy please consider a donation in memory of Tony to St. Paul Catholic Church.
