Tribute & Message From The Family

Dr. Tony I. "Reskie" Oreskovich passed away suddenly on December 28, 2010, at the age of 75. Preceded in death by his parents, Orma and Berry Oreskovich, he is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Rosalie; children, Dr. Tony G. (Celeste) Oreskovich, Mark Oreskovich, Mary Oreskovich (Richard Warner), and Susan (Ken) Gornick; cherished grandchildren, Hannah, Jakob, Olivia and Molly Oreskovich, and Paul Joseph Gornick; numerous cousins and many dear friends. A football and baseball standout at Pueblo Catholic High School, Tony also excelled on the diamond at Regis University. He graduated from the Creighton University School of Dentistry and served as a Captain in the U.S. Air Force. For 50 years, Tony stood beside the dental chair, treating his patients with compassion – as recently as one week before his death. He was devoted and loyal to those patients, his friends, his staff, and above all, his family. Reskie never backed down from a challenge, and to his last breath, never complained. The legacy of his hands and heart shines in the smiles of countless Puebloans, and through the beautiful stained-glass windows he created throughout the city. His extraordinary life force was deeply felt and will be sorely missed. Visitation, from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 30, Montgomery & Steward Funeral Home. Mass, 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 31, St. Joseph Parish, 1145 S. Aspen Rd. in Blende. Interment to follow, Roselawn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers and food, the family requests that contributions be made to the St. Joseph Parish New Building Fund or Evolution Baseball through Montgomery & Steward Funeral Directors, 1317 N. Main St., Pueblo, CO 81003. Online condolences, MontgomerySteward.com
