Passed away peacefully on Christmas Day at the age of 90. He was predeceased by his loving wife Kathi Welker (nee Mandl). Beloved father to George (Shelley) and AnnMarie (Brian Hall). Greatest Opa to his grandsons: Keegan, Tyler, Shayne, Mitchell and Dylan.

Anton was born  on August 20, 1927 in Ruma, Yugoslavia. A proud WW2 veteran he emigrated from Austria to Canada where he raised his family. He enjoyed his retirement years as a winter guest in Florida. With a quick wit and twinkle in his eye he was entertaining by nature. Loved to dance, sing and play a nostalgic tune on his harmonica.
