In memory of
Anthony A. Aidukas
Anthony A. Aidukas - - 1943-2018 Tony never met a stranger! Born in Chicago, Illinois to Anne and Tony, he attended St. Phillip's High on a band scholarship and played football. He went to Arizona State University where he continued his trombone playing. He formed his own band as he did in Chicago. While attending ASU he joined the National Guard. After his discharge he became a banker and then was self employed as an insurance agent. He helped his sons grow by participating in Boy Scouts, Little League, and was a coach for AYSO. He volunteered at St. Theresa's by serving on the Council and as President of the School Board. He also participated in his city and was on two commissions. His favorite place to be was as a docent at the PS Air Museum. He enjoyed the other crew members and meeting visitors from all over the world. He really loved his planes and all the history. Tony did all this while having Multiple Sclerosis. He got MS in 1971. But he never let MS get him. It may have gotten his leg but it never took away his spirit or his positive outlook. He helped organize the Desert MSers. Tony never met a stranger and they all became his friends. Tony is missed by his family...his wife of 54 years Maureen, his son Tony(PS) and husband Eric and children Isaac, Noah, and Jake; his son Sean(Napa); his son Kevin(Idaho) and wife Kim and children Seamus and Fionn. He also is missed by his younger brothers Jim and his wife Nora and nephews Eric and Kyle; his brother Russell and niece Shari and nephew Alex. He always enjoyed reminiscing with his cousins about the old Chicago days. Dingle and Caitleen, his Kerry Blue Terriers, were his joy and comfort and they miss the walks, the play and his big hugs. The family has waited to celebrate Tony's life until his birthday Tuesday, February 5th. It begins with a mass at St Theresa's Chapel at 2:00 P. M. Then we invite everyone to our home to continue to remember all the good years we had with him. Until we meet again...
