September 14, 1940 — August 24, 2018

Anton “Tony” Skrapits
New Lenox Township- Anton (Tony) Skrapits, 77, passed on Friday after a long illness.

Tony leaves behind a loving wife, Judy, of 41 years, five children: Tony, Teresa, Tracy, Kim, John, eight grandchildren and many close friends and relatives.

Tony was a resilient, independent and loving man. Tony never met a stranger. He immigrated from Hungary during the 1956 conflict and served as a Red Cross interpreter, speaking five languages as he assisted in refugee placement. He was a proud American and devout Catholic.

Tony was a successful businessman and spent a long career as a Director of Automotive Services for many dealerships. Tony was most proud of his family and his home. He loved to garden, golf and serve his community. He lived his life well, loved deeply and will be missed more than words can express. God bless you!
