Antonio “Toney” T. Guerrero passed away at home on Sunday, Feb. 6, 2011, at the age of 81. He was born on Feb. 8, 1929.

Toney was a great man and a decorated hero. Toney enlisted in the U.S. Army-Air Force at the age of 17. He served his country for 12 years and was a veteran of World War II and the Korean War.

During his tenure with the U.S. Army and Air Force, he was awarded a Purple Heart, a Silver Star, the Korean Service Medal with 4 Bronze Stars, a U.N. Service Medal, a Combat Infantry Badge, Army OCC Medal-Japan, and the Air Force Longevity Award.

Toney was preceded in death by his parents, Juanita Travieso Guerrero and Frank Guerrero Sr.; his brothers, Louis Guerrero Sr., Joe Guerrero, and Frank Guerrero Jr.; and his sisters, Frances “Kika” Alfaro and Roberta Barrientez.

He is survived by his brothers, Tomas Guerrero and Steven Guerrero; his sister, Mary Jane Barrientez; his children, Larry and Inez Guerrero, Maria and Rene Estrada Jr., Jerry Guerrero, Jeannette and Marcelo Benavides, Jo Ann Garay, and Judy Garay and Diana Bocanegra; his grandchildren, Robert Ramirez-Guerrero, Bernaddette Mendoza, Larry Guerrero Jr., Damien Bartonek, Esmia Diaz, Jerri Guerrero, Rene Estrada III, Samuel Guerrero, Emily Benavides, Sophia Estrada, and Marcelo Benavides Jr.; two great-grandchildren; countless adopted children and grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and extended family and friends.

We will miss our father, brother, uncle, grandpa, and friend, said his family.
