Anthony Luzader

Anthony R. “Tony” Luzader, 47, of Carey, died at 10:59 p.m. on Friday, May 17, 2019.
He was born Oct. 16, 1971, in Upper Sandusky to Reginald A. Luzader and Darlene K. (Eingle) Angelbeck. His mother survives in Carey. He is also survived by four siblings, Laura (David) Lortz, Carey; Tina (Harlan) Frey, Carey; Kim (Kenn) Kaufman, Oak Harbor; and Aaron (Kristin) Luzader, Carey; many nieces and nephews and many who called him “Uncle Tony.”
His father and a nephew preceded him in death.
Tony was truly larger than life. You were blessed, a better person for knowing him. He will forever be loved by so many. No one just “knew” Tony, he was family.
He is the “Pit Boss” of Reg’s Garage Slow Smoked BBQ, famous for his pulled pork and bbq chicken.
His greatest joy was making everyone around him happy, and he did.
If you knew him, you loved him.
His garage, affectionately called “The Funnel,” will forever be a source of great memories of laughter, food and “Tonyoke” where everyone was a great singer.
He was a devoted fan of Coach Mershman and the Carey Blue Devil football team. He loved making them breakfast the morning after a win.
He loved bow hunting, fishing and just being outside.
His work as a fiber optics technician took him from coast to coast, he made friends and memories everywhere he went.
His legacy is one of love, generosity and a great devotion to making every day count. May his example live on in all of us.
There is not enough space here to write the Epic Novel that is Tony Luzader. Love is Eternal.
The family will receive friends from 4-8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home in Carey. In memory of Tony, they request casual, preferably camo, attire.
A graveside service will be held Thursday, May 23, at 11 a.m. at Spring Grove Cemetery, Carey.
In lieu of flowers, Tony’s family requests donations be made to the Carey Athletic boosters, directed to the football program in his name.
