Anthony Paul Tufo, beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, was called to his heavenly home January 10, 2017 in Encinitas CA. Tony was born in Arlington Heights, IL and was proud of his Chicago roots for a lifetime, even after the family’s move to San Diego. Tony was adored as a son to Paul & Gloria Tufo, brother to Joe, Cindy, Michael, Lauren and Lisa, Brother in Law to Bonnie, Julie and Mike, Uncle to Heather, Tanya, Jamie, Margaret, Olivia, Jenny, Katie and Michael, Great Uncle to Alyssa, Sophia, Mikayla, Leena and Mia and devoted friend to countless others. Tony maintained friendships in both home towns and his outstanding talent as an incomparable friend was evidenced by his participation as best man in more than a dozen weddings. Tony had a brilliant wit, an incredible sense of humor, dynamic personality, was an excellent listener and was gifted with extreme intelligence that would cause anyone who knew him to pause before accepting a game of trivia or cards since he was an unbeatable winner. He was a steadfast sports enthusiast and was elated when his Cubs won the World Series in November. Tony was kind, loving, and loyal with a tender heart. He was easy to love almost instantly upon getting to know him which is why the outpouring of affection for him runs so far and wide. Though we are heartbroken that his time on earth was far too short, we take comfort in knowing he is free from his earthly body and has joined his precious Mother Gloria and Brother Michael in paradise where we will all meet again one day..
