Anthony Walsh

Joe Petrasek notified me that Anthony Walsh passed away recently. For those of you who went to St. John's, you'll no doubt remember Tony well. At St. John's, he was known for his advanced reading skills, always about 5 or 6 years ahead of his grade level and an expert on all matters related to WWII. I recall that his report card contained half A's and half F's, a feat that was incomprehensible to me. Tony did end up at Bishop O'Reilly, but he got held back and separated from our class. Tony was always getting into mischief, a trait that seemed to follow him into adulthood. Chuck Brennan wrote about seeing Tony in the infirmary in the blog, back in July of 2004. It's sad to know he's gone. May he rest in peace.

Here's the short obit from the Times Leader:

ANTHONY WALSH , of Union Street, Luzerne, passed away Saturday, March 22, 2008, at the Hospice Community Care of Wilkes-Barre. Surviving is his mother, the former Dolores Luksic. Private funeral services were held. Arrangements were by Lehman-Gregory Funeral Home Inc., 281 Chapel St., Swoyersville.
