Anthony “Tony” August Geraci, 78, of Oakland, Florida, passed away peacefully Friday, May 12, 2023, surrounded by his family at his home after a battle with lung cancer.

Tony was born on Aug. 1, 1944, in Tarentum, Pennsylvania, to August and Theresa Geraci. He grew up in Tarentum and graduated from Tarentum High School. He went on to serve in the U.S. Army and graduate from the Culinary Institute of America. Tony retired as an Executive Chef from Walt Disney World after a 25-year career.

Tony was a loving spouse to Marcia for over 50 years; a parent to Albert (Heather) and Nick (Lisa); a grandparent to Aria, Stella and Rylan; brother to Phyllis Lausberg, Mary Ann Geraci (deceased) and Patty Wolfe.

He had a passion for British sports cars, golf and spending time with his friends and family.  Tony enjoyed summers in North Carolina and "putzing" around in the garage.

Tony will be deeply missed by family members and friends, who remember him as witty, kind and generous with his time and knowledge. He was a member of the Classic MG Club of Orlando, Central Florida British Car Club, Ocoee Men’s Golf Association and the VFW Auxiliary.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to American Lung Association.
