Obituary for Anthony "Tony" J. Erangey

Peoria- Anthony “Tony” J. Erangey, age 62, of Peoria passed away due to a stroke at 2:22 p.m. Monday, November 27, 2017, at Unity Point Hospital in Peoria, Illinois.

Tony was born on August 7, 1955, in Chicago, IL, a son of Anthony P. and Ann (McGuire) Erangey.

He married Cynthia “Cindy” Eppel on May 21, 1988, in Chicago. They were joyously married 29 years.

Tony graduated from St. Joseph’s School in Galway, Ireland. He then returned to the United States in 1976. He previously owned and operated StoneHaus Marble and Granite in Peoria. Tony was kind to every person he met - his presence lit up a room. The world was Tony’s stage. He enjoyed performing live music, sharing jokes, and giving the best advice. He loved to play guitar, read, and be with his family.

Rock N’ Roll and Tony Erangey go hand-in-hand. He was a music connoisseur. He was in several bands and went on tour a few times. He loved to travel and experience new things. Tony was never afraid to jump out of his comfort zone. His family feels beyond lucky to have experienced life with him in it. He was unique in every way and that is what made him the phenomenal man he was. He celebrated people’s differences and what made people ‘weird’. Tony didn’t know a stranger, he liked to hear about life and how other people lived it. Tony was a very strong man, he battled and defeated cancer. He was a tremendous husband and father.

Tony is survived by his wife, Cindy Erangey of Peoria and his three children: Cara Erangey of California, Anthony Erangey (Sabrina) of Chicago, and Bridget Erangey of Peoria, as well as his siblings: Thomas Erangey (Mary) and Mary Lynne Erangey of Chicagoland, Ann (Robert) Latin of Iowa and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents Anthony P. and Ann (McGuire) Erangey.

Funeral Mass will be at 10:30 AM, Friday, December 1, 2017 at St. Bernard's Catholic Church, with Fr. Martin Mwongyera officiating. Visitation will be from 4:00 - 7:00 PM, Thursday, November 30, 2017 at Wright & Salmon Mortuary, with further visitation one half hour prior to the Mass on Friday. Burial will follow at Springdale Cemetery.
