Anthony Forrest Joseph Minich: Aug. 11, 1958 – Aug. 2, 2019



Anthony “Tony” was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., to Jim and Rosanne Minich.

He served in the Navy 1981 to 2001.

Met his wife, Cindy, in San Diego, Calif., and they were married on April 6, 1986.

He has two daughters, Natalie and Meredith, who were both born in Hawaii.

Of all the places he lived and traveled, Whidbey Island, Wash., was his paradise.

Tony died unexpectedly at his home on Aug. 2, 2019. He is survived by Cindy, Natalie and Meredith. His mom, dad, stepmom and siblings are still living.

Tony will be greatly missed by all who knew him. His quick humor and love for movies will long be remembered. It isn’t a “goodbye,” but “see you later” in Heaven with our Lord and Savior.

In keeping with the families wishes, in lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Diabetes Association.

A celebration of Tony’s life will be held at 1 p.m. Sept. 7, 2019, at Family Bible Church.

Family and friends are encouraged to share memories and condolences at
