He was a member of St. Wendelin’s Parish where he served as Eucharistic Minister. He also volunteered his time plowing snow for the parish.

Tony enjoyed biking, spending time at the lake cabin with family, fishing, playing accordion, designing and building almost anything and living each day to the fullest.

He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Bea of Luxemburg; children, Sandy (Peter) Weber of St. Cloud, Cindy (Ted) Hintze of Coon Rapids, Susan Lahr of Elk River, Curtis (Kristen) of St. Cloud; five grandchildren, Zachary, Nicholas, Joshua and Garrett Weber and Ellie Hintze; and brother, Pat Lahr of Maple Lake.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Mary Ann Lehnen; and brother, Edwin Lahr.

A heartfelt thank you to all of the St. Cloud Hospital and Hospice doctors and nurses, Family Dentist, our family and friends for their compassion and kindness during the past two weeks.

Our condolences to Bea and all of the family. I didn't know Tony for long but he left such a wonderful impression on me. I had been invited up to their family cabin and had the pleasure to help celebrate a birthday of his and his daughter Cindy with a chocolate cake. I will never forget the pleasure I felt from watching him enjoy his slice with such enthusiasm. It brings a smile to my face every time I think of how he enjoyed such a simple pleasure with such zest! What a great way to have lived and appreciated things-both big and small! May his dedication to his family, friends and church and the inspiring way he lived his life help bring you strength during this very hard time. He will be missed by all.

My older brother, Tony, has always been an inspiration to me. We worked on projects together, we played music together, we fished together, we attended church together, and shared meals and great times for visiting. My wife Connie and I will miss him and offer our sympathy to Bea and immediate family members and friends. See you later Brother. Pat
